If you purchase a nice pair of leather boots, you want them to last. Many boots will have a recommended product to best care for the leather; others do not come with such a recommendation. With so many care products, it can get confusing as to what product is best suited to protect your leather boots. So whether you’d like to find out a little about the products you will be using on your boots, or figure out which products to use, here is a list of Red Wing Shoe care products we carry at Zonk Shop.
Boot oil is a general protectant for all leather boots. It cleans, lubricates, and weatherproofs leather to make sure your boots last.
Leather conditioner works similarly to boot oil, except in paste form; it cleans, lubricates, and weatherproofs leather.
Mink oil softens, conditions, and helps waterproof smooth leathers.
Boot cream lubricates leather to give it a longer life. It prevents the leather from drying, and gives boots a fresh glossy finish. Boot cream comes in multiple colors, so you can find the color that suits your boot best - besides neutral, we offer brown, burgundy, and black.
Leather protector locks in conditioner, creates a barrier on the surface of the leather to keep it free of water salt and grease.
Leather cleaner helps lift dirt particles off of the boot keep it from becoming damaged.
Silicone waterproofing penetrates leather to repel water, snow, and de, while allowing the leather to breathe. It polishes to a high gloss. It is safe for all types of dry-tanned leather, and is not recommended for patent leather shoes.
