Essential Boot Care by Timberland

What’s the rundown when you need to clean leather boots? If anyone knows, it’s Timberland.

And no matter what your menswear philosophy, there’s a Timberland silhouette that reps it perfectly — from their legendary six-inch work boots that became iconic hip hop staples in the 90s, to their city-slick Smuggler’s collection fit for a date at the whiskey bar whether it’s 2016 or 1916.

Before the salt trucks and the slushy gasoline puddles of winter cramp your style, learn how to care for your boots the old-fashioned way: by hand and with the proper set of tools.

How to Clean Leather Boots, Timberland Style

  1. Remove dirt and salt with a brush.
  2. Wipe down with a gentle leather cleaner.
  3. Use a clean cloth to soak up dirt.
  4. Brush again (we’re almost done).
  5. Use Timberland Waximum all over to restore the leather and add a water-resistant protective layer. 

If you thought they looked all right before, you’re in for a surprise. There’s nothing like restoring your trusty boots with your own two hands. And you can rest assured you’ll be looking polished all winter long, regardless of where you tread. Pick up these essential tools, plus a few other cold-weather staples by Timberland:
