With winter right around the corner, so comes the snow and slush. Subjecting your boots to the cold weather and elements can take a toll on the quality and lifespan of your boots. 
     That’s why we recommend consistent care for your boots so you can get the most memories out of them! Check out a few duck boot options here:

clean rubber sole with brush

use damp cloth on rubber sole

Cleaning the Rubber Sole

Using a brush, clear away any excess dirt that was not knocked away immediately before coming inside. Be sure to do this when the boots are dry, as you are likely to just spread mud around the boot if they are wet. Using a damp cloth and a mixture of warm water and soap, wash off any dirt that was missed by the brush to keep the rubber looking pretty. Make sure to only use this on the rubber part of the boot. 

use baby powder to repel odor

Baby Powder

If you use your boots both inside and outside for long periods of time, this tip is very helpful in keeping odors from creeping out. Just apply a sprinkle of baby powder on occasion to keep them from getting stinky. This keeps the inside nice and dry, especially if you are storing them properly.

store duck boots in cool, dry place


Now we know most of you probably have a closet dedicated specifically for your shoes so you're already a pro at this part! Moisture and leather are not friends. So, to keep your shoes from risking damage, store them in cool, dry places away from sunlight. 

apply boot protectant to leather

Apply a Boot Protectant

Applying a protectant to the shaft of the boot can help keep the leather lasting longer. Tarrago High Tech Nano Protector spray or Scotchgard are a couple good protectants. Whether you got caught in the rain, stepped in a puddle, or spent the day building snowmen, this should keep the leather of your shoes in tip-top shape.

Now that you've made your Monogrammed Duck Boots "winter proof" you are ready to style the perfect cozy outfit!
