I couldn't just bring a pair or two to sustain me through my cross-country move while the rest of my collection is packed up by the moving company, so I decided on a measly five pair. For the past couple of days, I decided to perform some long-overdue maintenance and I'm very pleased with the results. Everyone has their own special way to clean and condition their boots, but in the next couple of days -- as soon as I find a break from packing -- I'll outline my process. Stay tuned.
My beloved John Lofgren Horween CXL Engineer Boots have suffered enough and it's about time to give 'em the love they so deserve. Previous Pecard conditioning prevented the South Pacific Ocean water from damaging the leather, so it's a proven fact my product of choice works. Not sure if I'm going to clean and condition or clean, polish and condition.
Last week I posted a "Reader Mail" regarding the conditioner to use on a pair of The Real McCoy's Buco Engineer Boots and after following my recommendation, Matthew couldn't be happier with the results.
Cheers, Matthew, and please keep up on the evo of your awesome boots.
Movers will be coming by soon, so I'm packing up the boots and it turns out a large packing box is not enough to accommodate the collection - I may have to start another box. This doesn't include the boots I've selected to put aside for my cross-country move. Stay tuned to see which boots made this cut.
