  • Care

    We believe a great pair of shoes or boots is always a solid long-term investment. To keep your favorite footwear in top form for years or even decades to comes, use our 4 Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.

    1. Clean

    Start by applying Saddle Soap with a Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to remove stains and dirt from the uppers and bring up the leather's natural oils.

    2. Polish

    Next, use a Horsehair Dauber to treat your footwear with Cream Polish which renews the color and luster of leather. Any time you want to achieve a truly glossy, high shine, you should instead apply Carnauba Wax Polish.

    3. Dress

    Restore the color and surface of the leather on the heels and soles using Heel Dressing.

    4. Protect

    Leather Lotion keeps uppers soft, supple and hydrated while a Horsehair Shine Brush is perfect for buffing your shoes to the desired shine. As a last step, spray on Water Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills and use a Leather Dopp Kit to keep all your care products organized.

    Ask & Answer
    Higgins Mill Boot with Dainite Sole is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Boots This is my second pair of Higgins Mills boots. The boots I received were well constructed with no issues. The leather on the boots is stiff compared to CXL, but after conditioning them and wearing them 5-6 times, they have begun to get better. It is important to note that this boot is made of vegetable tanned leather and not chrome/oil tanned leather. This means they will be stiffer than some other leathers. The boots did squeak when I first got them. Conditioning them solved that issue. The coating that AE outs on them looks nice, and it will wear away so the boots will develop patina or a worn look. If you want a completely uniform color to the leather on your boots, look for a different Higgins Mill. Some have commented that these boots are not durable. The Higgins Mill is not intended to be a work boot. It is a casual/semi-dress boot that holds up very well to office and weekend wear including outdoors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I wore these in Brussels, Belgium walking around on the cobblestone streets for three days and these are by far the most comfortable boot I've worn. The only complaint I have is the tongue doesn't seem like it was stitched center on the boot, luckily the shoelace hole on the tongue keeps it somewhat centered, otherwise these would be a bust. If it weren't for the tongue issue, I'd give these 5/5 stars no thought about it. They're beautiful too and the patina is nice and well done with the red Dainite sole.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, well-made boots I have several pairs of Higgins boots, but these are my favorite. I had them customized with the V-Tread soles. They look and feel great! Working on getting the squeaking noise caused by the friction of the tongues, but I’m still very pleased with my purchase.

    What is saddle leather? How is comparable to Chromexcel?

    Asked by: Vince
    Saddle leather is vegetable tanned, and Horween's Chromexcel leather is both Chrome and vegetable tanned. The Bright Saddle leather features a unique brown finish that reveals the gold tone color underneath with normal wear and tear. This type of finish will essentially "brush off" with wear and cannot be restored. This is feature is 100% intentional as it quickly gives a well-loved, vintage look to the boots. Chromexcel leather is a pull-up leather that has been stuffed with a mix of oils. It will reveal scuffs with wear as well, but the scuffs can be minimized in appearance by rubbing the areas with your hands and the warmth will redistribute the oils within the hide covering them up. Due to the oils, it is also known to have great water resistant properties. Thank you for your question!
