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.
