Boot Care
Protecting your boot investment with proper care will quickly extend the life of your boots. Here's a few maintenance tips:
Take special attention in cleaning your boots daily by washing off mud and dirt. Dried mud will rob the leather of its natural oils, making it dry and stiff. Ultimately, stitching will weaken.
Avoid drying wet boots near sources of intense heat. Campfires, radiators, etc., can cook and damage wet leather at surprisingly low heat. In fact, the quickest way to ruin a good pair of boots is to force dry them. Instead, allow boots to dry at room temperature or use a Peet Shoe Dryer.
After boots are clean and dry, apply light boot oil. If a high degree of water repellency is desired, thoroughly rub heavy boot dressing or grease into the leather. I recommend Obenauf's heavy duty leather preservative or White's oil for highly water repellent Red Dog and Black Otter leathers.
Heavy Duty LP
Applying Obenauf's LP is easy. Apply by hand as body temperature helps melt LP into damp or dry leather. For easier application warm LP first or use a hair dryer to speed penetration. We aslo highly recommend applying LP and then using a Peet's Shoe Dryer overnight. Two applications do better and last much longer in severly wet conditions.
