Maintainance Guide for Light-Toned Boots

If you have light-toned boots, it’s essential to know how to take care of them. Tan boots are more likely to get stained and discoloured than other colours, so knowing what products and methods will help keep them looking their best is essential for any boot owner.

Suede cleaning and treating

  • Use a suede cleaner and brush to remove dirt.
  • Apply a suede protector (available at most shoe stores) to keep the boots looking good. Preventing stains on light-coloured boots is as crucial as removing them. Stains on tan colour boots are more difficult to conceal.

Cleaning and conditioning your boots

  • Use a suede brush to remove dirt and debris from the boots. If you don’t have one, use a soft cotton cloth instead.
  • Apply a suede protector to protect your boots from stains and spills. You can also use mink oil or some other leather conditioner if desired (see below).
  • Clean the leather by applying a leather cleaner with a clean cloth or brush—make sure it doesn’t get too wet!
  • Condition the leather by applying a conditioner (like mink oil) with another clean cloth or brush. Let it soak in for a while before wiping off excess moisture with another neat piece of material.

Deodorising your boots after an extended period of wear or storage.

If your boots have been worn for long periods, or if they have been stored in a damp environment (like a basement), you may need to deodorise them. To do this, simply place them in the sun on a dry day for about an hour. If this does not work, you can use odour-absorbing deodorisers available at any pharmacy or grocery store.

Removing salt stains and protecting against future stains

Salt stains are one of the most challenging stains to remove. Moreover, they are more prominent on lightly coloured boots. To prevent them, apply a leather conditioner and let it dry before applying any salt stain remover. If you have a salt stain, first use a damp cloth to get rid of as much salt as possible. Then, use an old suede brush or toothbrush to scrub any remaining grains. After this step, wipe the area clean with a damp cloth and let it air dry thoroughly before applying shoe polish again.

Tips for Buying Tan Boots

They are a great choice if you want the right colour to match your style. They’re also great if you want to add some versatility and variety to your wardrobe because they can be worn with different looks. For example, tan boots can go with shorts and jeans as well as dresses and skirts. Below are some tips on how to buy tan boots:

  • Buy a pair that fits well—It’s important that your feet feel comfortable in them! If your toes are cramped or cramped out of the toe box, then maybe these aren’t the shoes for you.
  • Buy a comfortable pair of boots—You’ll be wearing these during all seasons, so make sure they’re not too warm or too cold! The last thing anyone wants is sweaty feet throughout their day/night out on the town.
  • Buy yourself something nice—Just because it’s cheaper doesn’t mean it is durable! Find boots that will endure for a long time and are comfortable.
