Also known as "alligator lizard," Teju leather classes you up without overdoing it. Alvies Teju lizard boots are made with the highest quality leather for a unique look that will last a lifetime — and then some — with a bit of regular maintenance.
Teju leather can run pretty dry, like a Brit on a vermouth bender. So make sure you clean and condition them on the regular to avoid cracking:
- Start by removing dirt and dust with a soft brush or damp cotton cloth
- While your Alvies are still damp, use a soft rag to apply a light coat of quality leather conditioner (we love Bickmore Exotic) all over the outside of your boot. Use light coats so you don’t clog the leather or cracks.
- If you’ve got a hot date (or a parole hearing) that requires a shiny boot, polish with a matching color or neutral crème. Apply in circular motions until you see a shiny haze on the boot — do this until the entire boot has been coated. Let the polish dry, then brush off with a soft cloth.
