Boot care

- OIL -

   We recommend you oil your boots before wearing, and about once a month going forward. This periodic oiling should be determined "to the touch," so if your fingers feel oily after touching the leather, stop oiling. If they feel dry, you probably need to oil.

   Keep in mind that over-oiling causes the boots to rot and under-oiling causes them to feel papery and crack; find a balance. It's real animal skin. Like lotion on your hands. You'll be able to feel what is right.

Use the Obenaufs Liquid Oil and follow our How To Oil video for some tips 

Do NOT oil the hardware/sole/heel stack, and Do NOT dry boots by the fire overnight. This could cause them to dry out and crack.  

- Optional Weatherproofing -

   Your Boots come water resistant because of the oil tanned leather we use and watertight construction. Check out our full video explanation here. They can be further waterproofed using our Leather Preservative and waterproofing spray.
