Shoe Care

Protect your investment - proper cleaning and conditioning helps preserve the finish and life of your leather footwear.

For oiled leathers

  1. Remove dirt from the shoe by cleaning thoroughly with a stiff bristle brush.
  2. Scrub gently with Red Wing Shoes Leather Cleaner, then wipe off the cleaner and dirt with a clean cloth. Boots should then be dried naturally in a cool, dry place, as high heat can remove oils in the leather.
  3. Using leather cleaner reduces the oil in the leather. To re-add oil to the leather apply Red Wing Shoes Boot Oil or Mink Oil as directed.
  4. Add extra protection to preserve your footwear investment. Red Wing Leather Protector provides an invisible shield from water, dirt, oil, and mud.

For roughout leathers

  1. Remove dirt with a suede cleaner kit brush.
  2. Clean remaining heavy dirt with the rubber suede cleaner. DO NOT use leather cleaner for roughtout leathers, as it can stain and change the texture of the leather.
  3. Remove loose fibers with the cleaner kit brush
  4. Lastly, apply Red Wing Leather Protector spray to all surfaces of the boots. Red Wing Leather Protector provides an invisible shield from water, dirt, oil, and mud.

For featherstone leathers

  1. Remove dirt from the shoe by cleaning thoroughly with a stiff bristle brush.
  2. Soak a soft, clean cloth with Red Wing Leather Cleaner. Clean the boot thoroughly with the cloth. Boots should then be dried naturally in a cool, dry place, as high heat can remove oils in the leather.
  3. Gently apply Red Wing Shoe Creme with a clean, soft cloth.
  4. Shine the boot by brushing before the shoe creme is fully dried.
