Caring for your Polo Boots:

Always follow the care instructions that come with your boots! Althouhg polo rules state that polo boots must be brown

To shine your boots, you must first clean them thoroughly. Wet a brush or sponge and add a bit of saddle soap and gently wipe down your boots. Clean the stitching and seams with a toothbrush and let the boots air dry.   It’s important to remove the sweat and salt from the horse from the boots as this damages the leather and stitching but be careful not to over saturate your boots with water. Always use a good quality traditional show polish rather than a "quick fix" product.  There are several options when choosing the polish to use. The standard, if there can be said to be one, would be Kiwi boot polish. Kiwi “Parade Gloss” polish has a silicone additive that will help protect the boot from water, and it shines well. Lincoln shoe polish is also an excellent product. 

The Hot Spoon Method

Heat a spoon in a pot of water on your stove or over a candle and carefully use the spoon to melt and spread the shoe polish evenly over the boot. Polish to a shine with old socks stuffed in ladies tights or pop socks and repeat until your achieve a mirror-like finish!

The Blow Dryer 'Spit Shine'

In this method, you begin by using your bare hands to apply thicker layers of polish to the boot. Between each layer, melt the polish into the leather by using a standard blow dryer set on "High" and held a few inches away from the boot. This will build up your base finish faster than adding layers with a rag similar to above.  Shine each layer as described above.

Finishing

Continue to rub the polish in with the cloth-covered finger until a shine begins to appear. Additional applications of polish may be necessary depending on the desired shine. Repeat the gentle warming of the polish accompanied by continuous circular buffing movements over the entire surface of the shoe. Rotate the cotton rag on your finger so that fresh, clean cloth is used at the beginning of each repeated step. 

Knee Pads

Use the same methods for your knee pads to keep them pristine and matching your polo boots!
