Care for Your Tall Boots with URAD
Done with URAD black cream
Equestrian tall boots are not just a functional piece of riding gear; they are a symbol of elegance and tradition in the world of horse riding. Whether you're a competitive rider or an enthusiast who enjoys leisurely rides, your tall boots deserve the utmost care to maintain their beauty and durability. In this article, we'll explore the art of caring for equestrian tall boots using URAD’s premium leather care products.
Step 1: Regular Cleaning
The journey to preserving the splendor of your equestrian tall boots begins with regular cleaning. URAD’s AQUILA leather cleaner offers a gentle leather cleaner perfect for all equestrian gear. AQUILA leather cleaner is formulated to gently remove dirt, grease, sweat, and other contaminants without compromising the integrity of the leather. It is gentle enough that it can be used daily without any trouble. Instructions are simple enough: spay and wipe.
- Use a soft brush to remove loose dirt and dust before applying the cleaner. This prevents abrasive particles from scratching the leather's surface.
Step 2: Conditioning, Polishing and Protecting
With URAD leather cream, you perform all these important functions in one single easy and quick step! All shiny tall boots can be treated with URAD cream, while non-shiny oiled-leather tall boots can be treated with GRASSO which will perform all the same maintenance functions but without the polishing and shining.
Leather is like your skin; it needs moisturizing to stay supple and crack free. URAD leather cream is enriched with natural lanolin oils that penetrate deep into the leather, restoring its softness and flexibility.
- Polishing and Shining
When it comes to tall boots, to achieve the best possible shine, reach for URAD's black leather cream (or the proper color for your boots). URAD’s self-shining carnauba wax dries to a beautiful shine within seconds, without any need of buffing.
Equestrian adventures often involve exposure to wet and muddy conditions and URAD cream is not just for aesthetics; its self-shining carnauba wax also forms a protective barrier against moisture and the elements while it’s lanolin restores the natural water-resistant qualities of your tall boots leather. Both ingredient work together to provide excellent waterproofing protection and create an invisible shield that will help keep your boots looking good even in inclement weather.
- Apply URAD leather cream just like you would apply skin cream. Dip one corner of the applicator sponge (provided in each jar) and wipe off any excess off the rim of the jar. Apply this very small amount of cream by working it into the leather in a circular motion. Start with leather patches that have no stitching and when there is almost no cream left in the sponge, finish off what is left of the cream in the sponge on those areas where build-ups could occur.
- Rince the applicator sponge under lukewarm water after each use.
- Grasso can be used once or twice a year on those creases and areas that bend when you walk. These are the spots most prone to drying out. Apply a very small amount and let Grasso penetrate for a few hours. Once dry, apply URAD normally, as described above.
Step 5: Storage
When your riding boots are not in use, proper storage is crucial. Keep them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Use boot trees or stuff them with newspapers to maintain their shape and prevent creasing.
Equestrian tall boots are more than just riding gear; they are a statement of style, tradition, and passion. To preserve their beauty and functionality, it's essential to care for them diligently. URAD, with its unique one-step-does-it-all, high-quality leather cream, offers equestrians the means to maintain their tall boots effortlessly, and spend but little of their precious time doing it. With URAD leather cream, ride on with pride, knowing that your equestrian tall boots are a testament to your commitment to the art of riding.
