Winter brings good tidings, family cheer and warm notions of bundling up by the fireplace – we love nothing more than curling up with a book and sipping hot tea during when it’s cold outside. While cozy in thought, winter can also take its toll on finer materials. It’s important to care for your leather to keep it in good health through the year.

Why Waterproof Leather?

Water itself isn’t always directly harmful, but as the material soaks in water or snow longer, the leather’s natural oils get pulled out. Occasionally, it’s a good practice to treat your leather and restore these oils to their natural luster.

How to Waterproof Leather

1. Find the perfect product. Specialty products like Obenauf’s Heavy Duty Leather Preservative do a wonderful job sealing out water when applied properly. For a spray-on application, Meltonian produces a water & stain protectant that is safe to use on leather.

2. Test a small area. To make sure that your chosen product doesn’t alter the leather’s color, test a very small area of your boot to see how it reacts. We recommend choosing a discreet area first, like the underside of the tongue, or just along the inside.

3. Apply evenly. Forming a perfect seal on your beautiful leather is key to keeping the elements at bay. Be certain to cover every section of your boots in order to create a barrier that will last all winter.

How to Treat Wet Leather

Accidents are inevitable. If you’ve gotten your leather boots just a little too wet by mistake, follow these steps to rejuvenate them:

1. Remove the excess water from the outside of your boot using a towel or clean, dry rag.

2. Use another towel to absorb any water trapped inside the boot, replacing it with a dry one every hour. Depending on the damage, it can take from 2 hours to 2 days to pull out the moisture.

3. Let the leather boots dry slowly, at room temperature. Leaving boots near heat can cause the moisture to leave too rapidly, and may crack the leather.

4. Once no more moisture has been extracted from the boot in several hours, clean and condition with your preferred leather balm, and polish.

However you choose to cherish your Alberto Fermani leather shoes or boots, know that the winter months have come, and get ready to step out in style.
