The material in ALVIES Original Cowhide boots are some of the finest quality leathers available. The steps below are an easy guide that will extend the life of your ALVIES Cowhide Boots:
- Start by removing all dust and dirt from your ALVIES Cowhide Boots with a soft brush or damp cloth
- While your ALVIES are still damp, use a soft rag to apply a light coat of quality leather conditioner (Bick 4 by Bickmore is a great product). It's important to use light coats so you do not clog any of the leather or cracks in your boot. Apply conditioner to the entire boot.
- If you like your boots to shine, apply a thin coat of cream polish (matching color for brown or black). Rub in a circular motion until you start to see a slight shiny haze on the boot. Continue this process until the entire boot has been coated. Let the polish dry and then brush off with a soft cloth.
- For water protection, add light coats of a non-silicone stain and water protector with a soft cloth.
It is very important to perform maintenance on a regular basis. Depending on how much you wear your ALVIES Boots and where you take them will depend on how often you need to care for them.
