A good pair of boots is the most important part of any cowboy’s outfit. So doesn’t it make sense to do everything possible to keep them looking great for longer? The boot experts of Don Juan Boots recently brought you some important tips that will help you keep your cowboy boots in top shape. Now, it’s time to keep those crucial bits of information going.
Moisture is a Must
A dry-as-bone environment is the perfect way to cause dryness and cracks to your boot’s leather. Keeping them in a humid place around your house can help avoid damage to the leather. However, make sure the place you put them in is not overly humid as it can cause mold and mildew to develop.
Watch How You Store Them
The way you walk will develop creases on the leather of your boots. This is perfectly normal. What you don’t want is improperly-developed creases that can be caused by poor storing. To keep the shape of your boots when you’re not wearing them, get yourself some boot trees that are specifically designed to retain a cowboy boot’s shape. If you want to save a bit of money, stuff your boots with cardboard, paper or a liter bottle.
Know Your Walk
Chances are you’ve noticed the similar way in which your other shoes wear as a result of regular usage. Some people are pigeon-toed, some tend to shuffle and others are duck-footed. While it may be difficult and ill-advised to change the way you walk, you can always keep it in mind so you can keep a lookout for possible holes in the soles. If you spot any damage, take your boots to be re-soled.
Transport in Style
If you’re travelling, your boots deserve much better than to be crammed into your luggage along with your clothes and toiletries. To avoid any unnecessary creases and scratches, pack your boots into a boot bag that will keep them safe and have you looking stylish.
