Python boots have long been associated with badasses. Alvies python boots are made from high-quality leather that will ensure a lifetime of badassery — and then some.
Your boots can look great for years with hardly any effort. But if they get dirty, here’s how to clean them without drying them out:
- To clean dust or dirt from your boots, plain water is all you need. Just slightly dampen a soft cotton cloth, then wipe in the direction of the scales. Using soap or too much water will dry out the scales and make them curl backwards.
- Use a soft sable brush to remove any dirt or dust from beneath the scales. Be careful not to lift the scales.
- Apply exotic conditioner (we love Bickmore Exotic) if you want to condition your boots. Whatever product you choose should be formulated for snakeskin, which needs a very light conditioner.
- UV light is the mortal enemy of python leather. Keep your boots in a cool, dark environment when not wearing them. Don’t store them in plastic where they won’t get air — pythons are the ones who do the suffocating, not the other way around. At home, the best place to keep them is your Alvies box.
