Brown leather boots come in all shapes and sizes. The most popular ones are thigh-highs, Wellingtons, cowboys, Hessians, gussets, bikers’, half boots and short ankles. There are many renowned manufacturers that design brown leather boots from Western countries such as Germany, Italy, France, England and the United States.
Leather is a durable material but it can start to look old and worn-out if not cared for properly, and this is especially true for brown leather boots. As with all types of clothing and footwear, you can extend the life of your leather boots by taking care of it and doing a little maintenance from time to time. Whether it’s a pair of high-fashion women’s leather boots or a rugged outdoorsy men’s leather boot, getting rid of the surface dirt and applying a shiny coat will keep your boots looking like new.
The first step in taking care of brown leather boots is to get rid of the heavy mud and dirt and other remnants of an outdoor adventure. Leather can degrade very easily if exposed to water, so the best way to get rid of the dirt and mud is to use a brush or damp cloth. The laces and insoles should be removed. After wiping, the boots should be left to dry in a cool, shaded area, away from sunlight or any direct heat source. Heat can cause the leather to crack up. A good idea it to use newspapers to cover and stuff into the boot; as the newspaper absorbs the moisture from the leather, they can be replaced with dry newspapers. This will speed up the drying.
Once the boots are clean and thoroughly dried, a waterproof coating should be applied to the leather on the outside of the boots. Most coating compounds come with applicators that deposit an even layer of coating. It’s best to apply a thin layer and then to reapply every few days, rather than putting a thick coat on. Most manufacturers have instructions on how to apply the compound. When done, storing the boots in a cool, well-ventilated area will extend its life.
