    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather our Saddle Soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and apply to the edge of the heel and sole.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish in between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto print with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    Classic Fit

    Rockies Highline Boot is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great looking boot, with a fatal flaw The Rockies Highline's exterior is stylish, and the sole is very comfortable. I ordered it in my usual size to account for thicker socks in the winter. My only issue is I cannot handle wearing them for long periods of time. There is a seam on the insides of the boots, next to my pinkie toe, that rubs the toes raw. I tried different types of socks, super thick and thin, and nothing helped with the blistering. This does not seem like an area that will fix itself after I break in the boots. Not sure why a boot like this would have a seam in that spot. It's a hot spot on an otherwise nice boot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, value, and fit Very satisfied the minute I put these on. Now that I have put on many miles with these boots, I am even more impressed with these boots. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot High quality I've come to expect from AE. This boot runs large. I normally wear a 10 D or E. I ordered a 9.5 D and they fit perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boot! Wanted to find a good pair of leather work boots to wear on the weekends for light construction projects, yard work and over semi rough terrain. My criteria I searched with included lace-up, non steel toes, leather, non-slip sole under $130. I was not pleased with the price, fit or weight of Red Wings, Wolverine, Timberland & Justin boots. I’ve been a customer of AE products for 5 years and was scanning through ine of the clearance sale I received via email. I liked the look of the Rockies Highline Boot but was skeptical. The price was to good to pass up so I purchased them. I’ve worn them every weekend (and on casual Fridays too). I couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you AE for a great boot!

    Size 9.5. How much do the boots weigh? Thx
    Asked by: JD
    Most of our footwear weights approximately between 3-4 lbs per pair. The Rockies Highlight features an XL (Extra Lightweight) rubber sole and so it will be on the lightweight end of the spectrum. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Leather lined & Sock liner?

    In a previous response to the question of the boot fully leather lined, its states, “...fully lined leather upper, a 2mm Poron insole under the sock liner”. Whats a”sock liner”? I’ve always understood it to be fabric lined boot/shoe versus a leather lined shoe. Does this boot have a sock (fabric) lining over the leather lining? I define a leather lined boot as the interior of the boot including its insole is constructed of leather. No fabric in the inside of the boot.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    All leather inside. You'll want a good fit, because, absent the friction of fabric, your foot could slide around a bit. They fit large, I bought in 1/2 down and they are plenty big for a thicker sock at that.

    I have a new pair of the Rockies Highline Boot, size 10D. Does it make sense to order a pair of Swims overshoes to wear over "boot" in snow and slush?

    The Rockies Highline will not be worn to hike the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Not necessary if you treat the leather correctly and take care of your shoes, ESPECIALLY around salt.
