Lengthen the life of your boots and improve their appearance by following these easy steps:

Wipe off dust because it will settle in the creases of boots and shoes. WIPE YOUR BOOTS OFTEN, using, preferably, a horse-hair brush. Wipe off loose dirt and after that, clean your boots. You can use Southern Leather Cadillac Boot Lotion to get rid of deep down dirt and grime. You don’t have to do this every time, just when they are dirty. Some leathers will need more than others. It needs to be done more often in dry climates or when leather is subjected to repeated dryings. Apply a coat of shoe cream (polish) and we recommend Southern Leather Boot Cream. It should match the color of the boot and should be rubbed into boots. Give the cream a few moments to dry and then brush or buff the boots to a shine. Use an old soft t-shirt or horse hair brush.

Good Practice and Extra Measure for the Conscientious:

Never put wet boots near heat to dry. Stuff boots with newspaper and let them air-dry. Never, ever wear your boots after they get wet - take them off and let them air-dry.
Unless you sit at a desk in an air-conditioned office, never wear the same pair of boots every day. They need to rest and air out. Keep dressing on the welts, if you have dyed welts and use conditioner if you have natural welts. Best of all, use boot trees! We cannot recommend them enough – good cedar boot trees.

Resoling & Repairs:

It is normal to replace the soles of your boots if you are especially hard on footwear. Some people have to replace the soles every year, others, only after years of wear. Try not to wait so long as to need a full resole, opt for the half resole. For those that are really hard on their feet or needing the extra traction, consider adding a rubber Vibram overlay on the sole - extends the life of the sole and saves you money in the long run without the need to resole as often. We can have this done for you. Don't do this if you are dancing in your boots everyday - those spins will be hard on the knees!

Remember, your new boots are an investment and the above care should give you many, many years of use, comfort and style points with your boots. If you mistreat your boots, we cannot guarantee that they will last for a reasonable time. Never let the rubber on the heels wear down to the leather. Get the rubber replaced BEFORE that happens. We cannot be responsible if you get your boots wet and continue to wear them - the soles can split from this type of abuse. If you do not condition the skins, they can split at stress points because they dry out. Just take good care of them and they will be around for a long time. If you have questions about boot repairs, contact us and we can take care of this for a nominal charge (we charge what the boot repair actually costs). It is best if you call us before you take your boots to be repaired. 512-326-8577. Some customers have had their boots damaged by taking them to the wrong repair shop.

People who know boots will stop you and say “Those are fabulous!” Wore them to the Houston Rodeo and heard it from every high-end boot seller. Superb boots - take the stingray plunge. You’ll be glad you did!!

3rd Pair of Heritage Boots...

I'm an old guy - actual BOOMER Generation, I own a horse farm and I'm not a very fashionable guy. Heck I have worn a flat top haircut my entire life. Occasionally my haircut is in style, but more often, it is not, but that's OK because I like what works for me. Heritage Boots work for me.

I have long admired the styles Heritage puts out; but honestly they are a bit too much for my understated style. I purchased the Apache oiled boot first...my goodness the quality was spot on, and the fit was like a custom boot. I then ordered the Crazy horse leather boot - essentially the same as the Apache without the oil.

My wife and I were at the beach just hanging out together, and because I am such a ladies man, my romantic conversation turned to cowboy boots. She suggested I get a "fancier" boot from Heritage. I really like the blue ostrich boot, but thought the navy color might make folks think I was 'HIP', and that would just be false advertising. So, I ordered this boot...a little flashy but not too much. Again the boot looks remarkable - not like anything else out there - and the fit was absolutely superb.

My wife told me she was going to order the navy blue ostrich boots for me for Father's Day but she said they were sold out. I hate that - mainly because I know she wanted to get them. To be honest, my wife doesn't need to get me anything as the 31 years we've been married has been a daily gift!

Let me add - the ladies that answer the phone/texts at Heritage Boot Company have been very, very helpful. I actually wanted another boot but after a bit of discussion ; they told me that boot would not be suitable for my bad back. They genuinely want a happy customer and are not just trying to sell a boot. That is not common , and neither are Heritage Boots. My advice to folks - pick up the phone for a chat with the ladies at Heritage, buy a pair of boots and see for yourself - like my wife - Heritage Boot Company has a lot more going on than just good looks!!

Best yet.

I have more than 10 pair of Heritage boots. All of them are very well made and comfortable. Cowhide to shark. But these are the best yet. Have now had about 2 weeks. Already they are very comfortable; on the way to most comfortable. Mavens are very helpful, especially when you're buying from CA, like me. Thinkin' about the next pair.

Best boots I’ve ever owned

Went to the brick and mortar in Austin and had a wonderful experience. Staff was very friendly and attentive and were happy to let me take my time and gawk at all the beautiful boots. I purchased the JP Jones and they were very comfortable right out of the box the fit is great on these. I’m writing this about a month after purchase and i’ve been wearing them regularly since then and they have only gotten better and better. Had a little sticker shock at first but once I saw the craftsmanship and felt the quality the boots were absolutely worth the price.

Service 5/5
Boot quality and appearance 5/5
Value 5/5
