Question Cleaning Tall Boots?

Hi everyone!

I have a question about my tall boots. A few days ago I was cleaning tack with saddle soap and leather conditioner. I went ahead and cleaned my boots too: the inside(side I grip with) and the outside. Only after I was done soaping and conditioning did my instructor tell me that the grip side of the tall boots should not be cleaned, because it becomes really slippery. I haven't ridden in them yet. I want to unslippery them up before camp and jumping starts.


How should I go about doing that?


Thanks SO much!

I`m not sure how you could but it only stays slippery for a while. If you have paddock boots and half chaps I would advise useing them.

When I clean my boots I clean the whole boot and it does not make a difference. The best way to unslippery slippery new boots is to ride in them. You'll find that after a few good flat rides and maybe even a jumping lesson, the inside will start to "scuff" a little and be less slippery. Also, if you want a little more grip while you are trying to break them in, I use this spray called Sit Tite spray by Pharmaka. Amazing stuff.

You should be fine. It makes it a little slippery, but more, it causes excess rub against the leather.

I clean my whole boots as well. Don't put polish on the inside though!

I have heard this too....but only after I had completely polished my entire boots. But nothing bad happened. Why are you not supposed to do the inside calf?
