There are so many ways to clean your boots. For after every use, apply a mixture of saddle soap and water into a soft cloth. For salt strains, you will need an equal mixture of water and white vinegar. For scuffs, an equal mixture of baking soda and water is perfect. And for dirt, you can use a damp rag to rub it into your boots.
3. Store it properly when not in use

Keep your boots at room temperature away from direct sunlight. You can also place it in shoe box or bag to allow the leather to breathe.
4. Keep your feet dry

No matter how good your boots look, it won’t be nice if it has a constant odour. This can be avoided by not wearing your boots while your feet is wet. It is also advisable to protect your boots from anything wet to prevent it from any damage.
