How To Care For Leather Cowboy Boots

Boot care is very simple and important for the long-term life of your cowboy boots. Generally, you should care for your cowboy boots in much the same manner as you care for your skin: clean off the dirt and then moisturize.


The 3 steps for proper cowboy boot care are:


- Clean
- Condition
- Polish


Dirt and dust without proper care can be a boot's worst enemy. Routinely cleaning and conditioning will prevent the dirt and dust from cutting away and drying out the microscopic fibers that make your cowboy boots strong and durable.


Condition cowboy boots only when they are clean and dry so that the conditioner can penetrate through the pores to keep the leather soft and pliable. Using a lanolin-based conditioner will prevent the color and finish from changing on the leather of your boots. Oil based conditioners will slowly darken a boot with each application so are only recommended for dark boots or ones with an oiled finish.  


Polish is optional for some leathers. It will rejuvenate your favorite cowboy boot and help revive the natural finish of the boot.  It will also cover scratches and create a glossy finish.

Step 1: Clean Your Cowboy Boots (Except Suede)

You can use a slightly damp cloth or soft brush to clean off dirt and dust. For stubborn mud, use a toothbrush to get around the sole and welt of the boot. Additionally, you can use saddle soap or shoe cleaner for those more stubborn spots.


Step 2: Condition Your Boots

Dispense about a quarter-sized amount of Cadillac Boot and Shoe Care onto a clean, soft cloth and massage the conditioner into the cowboy boot. If the boots are extremely dry and soak up the conditioner quickly, more may need to be applied. Be sure to condition the entire boot.

Step 3: Polish Your Boots

For deeper scuffs and scratches, or if you’d prefer your boot to shine, apply a matching leather shoe polish in light layers, buffing between each until the desired effect/finish is reached.

 

Notes On Polish:

•    Only cowboy boots with a finish can be polished.
•    For snakeskin boots, do not apply a colored polish. Be sure when you condition, to wipe with, not against, the grain of the scales.
•    Suede boots require specific suede cleaning supplies to effectively clean and polish them (see below).


Other Handy Boot Care Tips:

How To Clean Suede Boots:

Use a suede brush or stone to restore the nap and remove stains. You may also use a suede spray sealer if you would like an extra layer of protection against the elements.

Products For Cleaning & Conditioning Your Boot:

People often confuse saddle soap with boot conditioner. While it is a creamy cleaner, it is not a conditioner. Reserve the use of saddle soap for cleaning your boots. If you use saddle soap, be sure to follow up with a conditioner.

Boot Storage:    

Store your cowboy boots so that they can breathe. If at all possible, store them upright with a cedar boot tree inside. Cedar shoe trees help to absorb any moisture and help retain the boots’ original shape and prevent the toes from curling. Keeping your boots away from light and damp places will keep the color and leather looking great longer.


What To Do If Your Boots Get Wet:

If your boots get wet, soak up excess moisture with a clean towel, then allow them to dry naturally. Do not use a heat source to speed up the process. This will take a few days. Once dry, thoroughly condition.

Care For Boot Soles:

If the soles of your cowboy boots are scuffed or discolored, use edge dressing to re-stain the sole of each boot.  Use the brush that is included with your bottle of edge dressing and stain the sole with quick, even strokes. Wipe excess stain off with a soft cloth and allow to air dry.


We hope this helps guide you on proper cleaning, conditioning, and maintenance of your boots. Following our tried-and-true care guide will allow your boots to withstand any amount of two-steppin’ or boot-scootin’ for years to come!

Of course if you have any questions, feel free to give us a holler!

Cowboy Boot Sizing

"In making a pair of boots for a man, we have to be aware that our product is his foundation."
- Sam Lucchese Jr., Lucchese Boots

__________________________________

Choosing the right boot size from the start makes all the difference when it comes to comfort and if the boot fits, buy it!     
                                                                     
  In general, the rule is, the further you get from the letter A, the wider the boot is. This is regardless of gender (more on that difference below). If you have a narrow foot, wear boot insoles to absorb extra width (plus, they add cushion).

Men's Boots

Men's boots are sized in B, D (being the average boot width), and EE width. Most men find they must size down ½ - 1 full size from their athletic shoe size to get the proper boot fit.

Women's Boots

Ladies boots widths are normally A, B (being the average width), and C width. B width boot fits can vary greatly by manufacturer. Women with average to wide feet will be true to their normal shoe size. Women with narrow feet will sometimes size down ½ size.

 

   

 

We can't wait to help find the right boots and fit for you.

Sizing Questions

1. How can I make sure I order the right boot size?

*Begin with your normal shoe size. Depending on the brand, you may size down 1/2 to 1 full size.

*Note that socks can change the way a boot fits. Try on the boots with the type of sock you will wear.


*If your feet are a narrow width (and no narrow sizes are available to purchase) you may need to order a 1/2 size smaller than your normal size.


*Your feet may be two different sizes. We recommend ordering the size that fits the larger foot.


*Standard width for a woman's boot is "B" width. Narrow is labeled "A". Wide width is labeled "C".


*Standard width for a man's boot is "D" width. Narrow width is labeled "B". Wide width is labeled "EE".


Note, not every boot will be available in every width. Product sizes vary from brand to brand and sometimes even within a specific brand. For this reason, we have provided basic fit charts. Please use the fit charts provided as a general guideline to determine the size(s) you need for your western apparel.


We recommend wearing boot socks with your boots. Boot socks are designed to reduce slippage and shock and provide a comfortable stay-put, over-the-calf fit to complement the tall shafts of your boots. Unlike your regular cotton socks, boot socks absorb moisture to keep your feet dry and warm, all day long.

 


2. How do I know that my new boots "fit"?

These instructions are designed to guide you in checking for the perfect fit in your new boots - which is quite different than checking for fit in a pair of shoes or sandals. Note - check for fit while standing in your boots and try on both boots - your feet may be two different sizes. It's also important to test your boots out while wearing the socks you plan on wear with your boots. Lastly, take that first walk in your new boots on a carpeted floor.


Once you are standing, wearing both boots, look for these signs of a good fit:

  • Your entire foot should feel snug in the boot EXCEPT for your heel. Don't worry! Your heel should always slip in a properly fitted new boot. As you begin wearing your boot, you will find the leather softening. Your boot will then conform to and move with your foot.
  • The ball of your foot should sit at the widest part of the sole of the boot. Unlike feeling for the fit in your toes as you would in trying on a shoe, the proper location of the ball of your foot will ensure a good fit throughout. If the ball of your foot sits too far forward in the boot, your toes will uncomfortable crowd in the toe box of the boot.
  • The instep (vamp) of the boot should fit snugly over the top of the arch of your foot (more snugly than the fit in your normal shoe or sneaker).

 

3. How can I size a belt for myself?

When ordering belts, you go up one full size from your waist size. For example: 36 waist wears a 38 belt.

What does "CLOSEOUT" mean?

A Closeout boot is a style that either we have chosen to discontinue or the manufacturer has discontinued. All closeout styles are FINAL SALE. We cannot order any additional sizes. All stock is subject to availability. Please keep in mind when shopping the Closeout section, you might be ordering one of the last few pairs of that style. Inventory discrepancies do occur due to theft, exchange oversights, or defective product.


Please be aware that our stock online is the same as the stock in our retail stores. Sometimes Closeout boots have been out on the shelves for display and may have slight scuffs.


New Closeout prices cannot be retroactively applied to an order that has already been completed.

My boots arrived looking aged. Do you sell used boots?

No, we do not sell used boots and we will not ship you used boots. We have over 10,000 boots on display in our store and often have only one in each size which will go on display. We encourage people to try on our boots while they are in our store which may result in slight scuffing or scratching on the sole. This is common from the friction on our wood floors and from our shelves. We will not sell you a boot that has been worn outside of our store. When trying on your boots at home, please walk around on carpet or hardwood (not brick or tile floors) to prevent further scuffing of the sole.
