Ariat Volants

Hey everyone. As an early graduation gift I was just given a pair of the Ariat Volant H20 tall boots. I LOVE them so much, its a little silly. I have seriously been eyeballing them since they came out. But my problem is how do I clean them? The leather is waterproof and very sturdy and I want them to last as long as possible. Tips and tricks? Or, does anyone else have these boots and love them? Tell me!

I don't have them, but would love to. I seriously have the hots for the red and black ones.

I don't see any reason why you wouldn't just clean them the same way you would any boots though. They are still regular boots, just super sexy! :)

I just wanted to make sure that cleaning them with saddle soap and whatnot wouldn't hurt the waterproofing. The reds are cool but I like mine because my favorite color is blue lol.

Don't use saddle soap. Boots are tanned a little differently. Wipe them with a damp cloth and when dry polish with a wax polish, not the liquid. When that has dried butt buff with a soft flannel to a high shine. The heat from vigorous rubbing with help create a protective layer. Don't use a shoe brush to shine.

I have ariat H2O boots, short not entirely sure which ones exactly but its all the same leather so you could do what i do or something similar. I clean and condition them like I would any other boots. The leather cleaner I use is lexol, I love their wipes it so simple and easy and I use bicks leather conditioner.

Way lucky! Congrats on graduation and the early present of such nice boots!
I love the lace up ones myself but would take either ones lol.
