Keep your fall and winter boots looking great no matter the weather—and for years to come—with these easy tips, including how to clean leather boots, how to waterproof leather and suede boots, how to store boots, and more.
When to Get Boots Professionally Cleaned
If you’ve invested in a nice pair of boots, you might want to take them to a cobbler to clean any major stains. The shoe repair fee will be far less than the expense of buying a new pair.
In addition, it pays to have your boots professionally cleaned twice a year: Before you begin wearing them in the fall, and after your final wear in the spring, before you store them for the summer. This way, your boots start their season in tip-top shape and are restored to their initial glory prior to off-season storage.
