Good Leather Conditioner/Protecter?


My boyfriend just got a new pair of boot for me for my birthday. They're the Ariat Heritage Stockman boots for women.

I LOVE these boots. My last pair of boots were some black Justin roper boots that laced up and were only ankle height, so these are way different.

My Justin's lasted for ten years and I never did anything to them. However, I really want to take care of my new boots. I'm worried about staining them because the leather is soft rather than shiny and smooth.

Could anyone reccomend a leather conditioner as well as a water/stain protector? Really any boot care tips will be appreciated :)

Good old shoe polish that's allowed to dry and buffed to a high shine still offers good protection. I have a pair of those Justins and they look good with the old shoe polish in a can. There's enough wax to make it water resistant.

Agreed. I really like Kiwi's stuff, make sure you get the right color. Apply it with a sponge applicator or a rag, then buff it up with a shoe polishing brush.
