I got.. well my mom got me... a pair of Ariat tall boots today. They are either the dress of field boots.. i'll have to look.
I asked the guy there if I had to condition them because they're leather and he said no, but I figured I'd ask on here anyways.
Do I have to buy any special leather conditioner for them?
The guy also said it would take 3-4 rides for me to break them in, which isn't a problem because I can do that in no time, but does that seem right? 3-4 rides to break in new boots?
Oh, I also got a those plastic things to go inside the boots... forgot the name but should I put them in now? Or wait until they are already broken in to put them in?
These are my first real pair of tall boots.. I have a pair of Ariat winter boots, but they're not leather, so I can just clean those with water and a sponge, and I never did anything with my leather paddock boots.
