Burns recommends Bick 4 as a leather conditioner, available at all Burns locations. This conditioner can be used on any leather (flat leather to exotic) and any color of leather with the exception of suede and shell cordovan. This leather conditioner will not change the color of your boots. It is a silicone base, not an oil base, keeping the integrity of the original color of the leather.
Squeeze conditioner (about a quarter size) onto your hand and rub all over each boot separately. You can never over apply the conditioner. Apply conditioner about once a month, or whenever you think your boots need extra conditioning.
Suede Leather Boots
A suede leather, (suede goat, calf, hippo, or elephant) SHOULD NOT be conditioned. To revive your boots simply use a suede brush and go against the grain of the leather to raise the nap.
Shell Cordovan Boots
Only clean these boots with a damp soft cloth. When finished with the damp cloth, buff with a dry soft cloth. That is the only “conditioning” needed.
If you have any question regarding your new boots please feel free to call Burns Customer Service at 800-453-1281. Due to our special components and unique last, any work performed on your boots other than by Burns’ authorized craftsmen will render the warranty null and void.
