How to Take Care

of your HYER Boots

In the vast expanse of Western footwear, cowboy boots are more than just a style statement – they're a testament to craftsmanship and tradition. Preserving the allure of these boots requires a meticulous approach to leather care. Beyond the routine dirt removal, the journey involves understanding the nuances of different leathers and employing the right products. At the forefront of this care regimen stands Bickmore, a family owned brand that mirrors our values, commitment to quality, and longevity.

The Foundation of Boot Care

First and foremost, if you want your boots to last - you need to clean them. Don’t let the dirt, grime, and sh*t destroy these works of art by leaving them dirty. To clean them properly, ensure your cowboy boots are free from any dirt and debris. Use a dry, clean cotton rag for this preliminary cleaning, and if needed, introduce a dampened rag for more stubborn dirt. For suede boots, never use water, just use a gentle brush can help loosen the dirt and debris and maintain the texture of the material.

Before we break it down into specific leather care, it's crucial to comprehend the diverse nature of cowboy boots. Each pair is a blend of tradition and modernity, often featuring intricate stitching patterns and exotic leathers. Recognizing these elements lays the foundation for a care routine that not only maintains aesthetics but also extends the life of your beloved boots.

Understanding Leather Varieties

Cowboy boots come in various leathers, each with its unique characteristics. From the rugged charm of roughout leather to the timeless appeal of cowhide or bullhide, and the exotic allure of ostrich or caiman leather – each demands a specialized care routine.

Bickmore's Role in Boot Care

“Roughout” or Suede Leather

For “roughout” or suede leather, a careful approach is essential. Use a dry white cotton towel for cleaning, being mindful of potential color transfer from the rag to the boot. A horsehair brush can then be used to gently remove any remaining debris. Should you opt for a water repellent spray, consider its impact on the color, especially with light-colored leather.

Hide Leather

Cowhide or bullhide leather necessitates a conditioning routine. After cleaning, use a dime-sized amount of leather conditioner applied with a white rag, making sure you have a light even coverage over the entire boot. Allow the boots to dry overnight before considering additional treatments like creams or finishes.

Exotic Leather

Exotic leathers like ostrich or caiman deserve a delicate touch. An exotic leather conditioner, applied sparingly on the exotic vamp, is recommended. Use the same method for cleaning and conditioning as previously mentioned. For the top part of the boot, a generic leather conditioner is suitable. As with other leathers, a drying period overnight is crucial before any further applications.

Elevating Leather Care to an Art

As we embrace the heritage of cowboy boots, Bickmore stands as a trustworth ally in the journey of leather care.
