Breaking In Your New cowboy Boots

We recommend wearing your new boots around the house from several days and even up to a week in order to help you through the break in period. Keep in mind that some boots may take longer to break in and may prove more difficult. Wearing your boots to work too soon may cause unnecessary hot spots and blisters. It’s also a good idea to wait until your boots are broken in before you apply a waterproofing agent. Using a conditioner can help speed up the break in process. Cleaning & Waterproofing Your Boots Although waterproof-lined boots, are the best way to ensure a dry foot.

First, clean your boots with a water-based cleaning agent and a nylon brush. Be sure to carefully brush the seams to make certain all the dirt is removed. Next, wet the boots and apply a water-based waterproofing agent to make your boots more water resistant. We recommend using water-based products for the following reasons: Breathability. Water-based products do not hamper the breathability of leather or nubuck footwear. This is extremely important since the average male can sweat up to a pint a day for each foot. If you clog the pores of your boots with an inferior product, this sweat has no way to evaporate! You can apply water-based waterproofing products to wet or dry boots. Water-based agents contain NO petroleum, which can cause leather to stretch and affect the fit of the boot.

Heat not required!

Water-based products do not require heat in order to penetrate the leather. Excessive heat can damage your footwear.
