4 Tips To Make Sure Your Boots Last You A Long Time

When it comes to your footwear, you probably want to invest in something that will last you for a long time and not fall apart after a few months. Boots are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own, but they’re also some of the most expensive. It’s easy to spend upwards of $200 on a pair of boots, so when you buy them you probably want to make sure they’re something that will last. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to extend the life span of your boots while you have them. Whether your boots cost $20 or $200, these tips can help keep them looking good and lasting longer.

Make sure you get the right fit

One of the most important things when you’re buying new boots is to make sure you get the right fit. It doesn’t matter if you are spending $20 or $200 on a pair of boots if they don’t fit you properly. It is important that the boot is not too tight. This can cause a lot of problems, from blisters to serious pain from being squished in the boot. It is also important that the boot is not too loose. If the boot is too lose, you run the risk of it falling off when you are walking or standing. It is also important to make sure there is enough room in the toe area. Your toes need room to breathe, but they also need to be somewhat squished together in order to walk properly. If there is too much room in the toe area, you may end up stepping on the front of your toes.

Clean Them And Brush Them Regularly

Whenever you get your boots, it is important to clean them and brush them regularly. You don’t have to clean them after every wear, but it’s a good idea to clean them after you’ve worn them a few times. Regular cleaning will keep your boots from looking dirty and worn. It will also make them last longer, as dirt and grime can wear down the material of your boots. It is also important to brush your boots regularly. This will not only clean them, but it will help keep them from becoming too scuffed. You can use a toothbrush or a boot brush to clean your boots.

Dry Out Your Boots After You Wear Them

If you are out in the rain and end up wearing your brand new, expensive, leather boots, it is important to dry them out. While it may be tempting to leave them out to dry over night, it is better to dry them out in the sun or the dryer. You don’t want to dry them in an artificial heat source, as this could change the shape and the colour of your boots. However, if you’ve worn your boots out in the rain and they’re still wet, it is best to put them in the sun or in the dryer to dry them out. If your boots are still wet, leaving them out in the rain could cause them to become stained.

Try Shoe Repair Before You Throw Out Your Boots

If you find that your boots are starting to break down, it may be time to throw them out, but before you do, try shoe repair. You can take them to a local cobbler and have them fixed. Often, this is much cheaper than buying a new pair of boots. There are also a few DIY methods you could try. For example, you could use a shoe repair kit that you can find at the store with your boots. Another option is to use a repair glue and patches to hold pieces together.


Ultimately, when you are buying boots, it is important to know what type of material they are made from, how much you want to spend, and what type of foot you have (toe type, arch type, etc.). When you follow these tips, you can make sure your boots last longer.
