A great pair of boots can keep you in step for years, especially if you care for them properly. Joshua Bingaman of Helm Boots stopped by Studio 512 to give us some tips on how to make our boots last through every season. Cleaning off the boots with a damp cloth and drying it is the first step. Next, we added one of Joshua’s favorite products called Blackrock that conditions the boots. Pay attention to rough areas when you are applying the conditioner. For a tougher leather boot that may take longer to break into, try Venetian shoe cream to soften the leather and the boots will form to your feet better. Boots that are properly cared for can last up to twenty years and Helm Boots will re-sole their products if they become worn. Helm Boots is located at 900 E. 6th Street. To shop their boots, you can visit their store or check out their website at helmboots.com.
