What To Do When You Get A New Pair of Cowboy Boots


Getting a new pair of cowboy boots is a moment that every boot enthusiast looks forward to. Those high quality leather boots that you get to wear and show off when going for rodeos or parties? There’s nothing better than that. However, getting new boots does not mean you can leave your old ones in the back of your closet for good. You need to take good care of them, especially if they are made from high-end leather and cost plenty of money. After all, who knows when will be the next time you find such an awesome pair again? Fortunately, there are things you can do to increase the lifespan of your new pair. Read on so you know what to do when you get a new pair of cowboy boots.


Check The Fit

The best way to prolong the lifespan of your new pair of boots is to make sure that you get the right fit. If the boots are too small for your feet, those will probably develop blisters and calluses. And this will happen in a matter of weeks, not years. For this reason, it is essential to spend enough time finding the perfect pair of boots. Try them on, walk around a little bit, see if they feel great. If you get them online, make sure you also get them measured. In this way, you can make sure that they are the right size.


Damp Mudding

Damp mud can be pretty damaging to your new pair of boots. After all, those are more than likely made of high-quality leather that can easily be scratched and damaged. Therefore, it is essential to make sure that you do not wear your new boots during rainy days. Muddy water can get stuck inside the boots, damaging the leather. Plus, wearing wet leather boots for a long period of time can lead to fungal infections. Therefore, make sure that you keep your new pair of cowboy boots dry until they get fully dried out. If you have to wear them during rainy days, try covering the boot shaft with plastic bags. This will prevent water from getting inside the boots and damaging the leather.


Leather Conditioning

As we’ve mentioned above, condition your new pair of boots as soon as you get them. This will prepare the leather for tough use. It will also prevent the leather from drying out. If you want to condition your new pair of cowboy boots, you can use a conditioner. There are many types of conditioner that you can find in stores. Before you apply the conditioner, make sure that the boot is clean. To make the life of your new boots longer, you can also use a conditioner made especially for boots.


Shoe Protection Coating

Prolong the life of your new boots by coating the insides of your cowboy boots with a special coating. This will prevent the inside of your boots from getting dirty. It is a good idea to start coating your new pair of boots as soon as you get them. Doing this will protect the inside of your boots and keep them clean. What you choose to coat your boots with is up to you. However, make sure that it is something that is easy to clean.


Sole Replacement

As we said above, it is essential to take good care of the soles of your new boots. You can do this by using a special rubber protecting spray. You can also use a special coating that is made for protecting the soles of cowboy boots. When you spray the soles of your new boots or put the protective coating on the soles, make sure that you do it before you break in the boots.


Conclusion

Finally, a new pair of cowboy boots is an investment. They are something that you will be wearing for years to come and will last you through thick and thin. Therefore, you need to take good care of your new pair of boots. If you follow the tips we’ve given you in this article, you will be able to prolong the lifespan of your new pair of cowboy boots and enjoy them for much longer.
