How To: Boot Care

Look after your boots. And they’ll look after you!

Like with any leather product, a bit of TLC is needed from time to time to maintain your boots performance and durability. Leather is full of natural moisture in the means of fats and oils, and it is essential to ensure this moisture is retained and replaced to get the very longest life out of your Brandecosse boots.

Aftercare frequency really comes down to use, however we would say every two weeks of regular use would be a good timeframe for a full cleaning procedure. Daily wear, we would recommend once a week.

The Do Not’s

Before we get to the DO’s, there are two very important DO NOT’s which pull the natural moisture out the leather and could leave the leather in a poor condition after time.

  1. DO NOT force dry your boots with direct head. Always dry naturally at room temperature. If water has come over the top of your boots, the best way to dry is to stuff your boots with newspaper and leave over night.
  2. DO NOT Leave your boots with dried on mud for prolonged periods of time. We suggest hosing down your boots after every use if you are in muddy environments.

Leather

Step 1

Remove any laces/undo buckles. Hose down your boots to loosen dirt and brush off any remaining dirt

Step 2

Shake ECO Boot Cleaner well and spray all over the boots and on brush. Vigorously scrub the surface with a polishing brush to create and rich foam and remove dirt. Ensure to pay particular attention to the eyelets, tongue/gusset and welt stitching.

Step 3

Rinse off remaining Eco Boot Cleaner and dirt from boots and brushes and allow to fully dry at room temperature overnight.

Step 4 (optional)

If there are any scuffs in the leather you wish to cover up, take the applicator brush and work Mogano Renovating Cream into the leather in a circular motion until the scuff becomes the same colour as the leather. Once complete, leave for 3-5 hours to allow the Mogano Renovating Cream to sink in.

Step 5

Use the polishing brush to work in a generous amount of Natural Boot Wax into the leather all over the boot, paying particular attention to high stress areas, tongue and the tongue gusset. Once covered, work the remaining wax left sitting on the leather in with a Buffing Cloth to bring your boots to a shine.

Step 6 

Leave your boots for 6-8 hours to allow the wax to sink into the leather to leave a hydrated and supple leather.
