It’s best to follow these simple care tips to help keep your pair of leather boots in good condition:

Keep your boots clean at all times. This is the simplest and most sensible way of caring for your leather boots. To keep your boots in good condition, you should keep them clean from the time that you purchase them. Also, make sure that you remove any dirt immediately, especially mud, when you take them off. You can use store-bought leather cleaner or a damp cloth.

Condition your leather boots. You may use any regular leather conditioner. Just stay away from those that contain silicone or wax.

For best results, avoid soaking your boots in conditioners.

Immediately take care of any stains. Avoid permanent stains on your leather boots by cleaning and removing them right away, because stains can become permanent if left untreated. If there’s a stain that won’t come off, you can use an oil-based leather conditioner on the entire boot.

Treat the unwanted odors. Leather also has a stinky odor, but it is tolerable. But a combination of leather odor and stinky feet can be a problem. You may use baking soda or any odor treatment to remove the stink from your Leather boots. Keep your boots in a paper bag with a small cup of baking soda for 24 hours. You can also put inside each boot an old sock filled with baking soda.
