Care
  • How often should I wear my boots?
  • We recommend not wearing boots multiple days in a row to allow them to properly dry out after wearing. Your feet generally leave quite a bit of moisture in your boots with longer periods of wear, and they’ll last much longer by alternating days of wear!
  • Do you recommend any specific conditioners or polishes?
  • For conditioning your boots (which we recommend doing every 1-2 months), we recommend using a water-based conditioner to avoid altering the color of the leather. Oil-based conditioners are effective at moisturizing and protecting boots, but they can permanently alter the color of the leather.

    For polishing, we recommend a neutral wax-based polish so that the color always matches!

    Tecovas offers a Leather Care Kit with all of these items and more, to ensure your boots and leather goods age gracefully. For more specific leather or product care advice, feel free to email us at howdy@tecovas.com any time.
  • Can Tecovas boots be resoled?
  • Yes! All Tecovas boots are constructed using ¾ Goodyear welt construction, which means that once you wear through the leather outsole, any cobbler can repair and replace the outsole.

    We generally recommend getting a ‘half sole’ resole, which is more affordable than a full outsole rebuild.

    Tecovas does not currently offer in-house resoling services, so we recommend heading to your local cobbler to repair your boots! Email us any time (howdy@tecovas.com) with any questions.
  • What is your warranty?
  • We proudly stand by our products should any issues arise outside of normal wear and tear. Email us any time (howdy@tecovas.com) with questions and we’ll be glad to help you!
  • I have an issue with my boots. What should I do?
  • We proudly stand by our products should any issues arise outside of normal wear and tear. Email us any time (howdy@tecovas.com) with questions and we’ll be glad to help you!

    Please note that our warranty policy does not cover repairing outsoles since that is considered normal wear and tear.

Calfskin Leather

  • Store boots in a dry and dark place
  • Alternate boot-wearing days to let boots properly dry out
  • Ideally, store with tissue, newspaper, or a cedar shoe tree that does not stretch the leather
  • Brush dirt off after every wear with a horsehair brush; use a damp cloth if necessary
  • Conditioning
  • We recommend conditioning every 1-2 months, depending on how often they're worn. This process may leave the boots with a slightly 'matte' finish. Here’s how to condition:
    1. Remove all dirt or dust with horsehair brush or damp cloth
    2. While boots are still damp, lightly apply a conditioner over the entire boot, ideally with your fingers but can also do with a brush
    3. Let conditioner dry, then buff with horsehair brush
  • Polishing
  • Should be done only after any conditioning, but it's entirely based on preference. If the boots are clean and you don't have time to condition, using spray shine sparingly should be fine! Use a neutral polish to avoid colors not matching. Here’s how to polish:
    1. After conditioning and buffing the boots (so they are dry), apply a thin coat of wax-based neutral polish to all the areas you wish to shine. The entire area to be shined should be covered with a slightly shiny layer.
    2. Let the polish dry, then brush off with a soft cloth
    3. Buff with a horsehair brush to the desired level of shine
  • Resoling
  • It is normal for the leather soles to wear out anywhere between a few months to a few years, depending on frequency of wear, weight & gait of the wearer, and outdoor conditions of wear. We recommend heading to your local cobbler for a resole (and recapping rubber heels if necessary). We’d generally recommend a half-sole resole, which would only replace the worn-out part of the outsole, maintaining the original peg construction. This typically runs anywhere from $50 to $100 depending on the cobbler!

Ostrich Leather

  • In general, you may care for your ostrich boots in the same way that you’d care for your smooth leather or calfskin boots
  • Store boots in a dry and dark place
  • Alternate boot-wearing days to let boots properly dry out
  • Ideally, store with tissue, newspaper, or a cedar shoe tree that does not stretch the leather
  • Brush dirt off after every wear with a horsehair brush; use a damp cloth if necessary
  • Conditioning

We’d generally recommend a half-sole resole, which would only replace the worn-out part of the outsole, maintaining the original peg construction. This typically runs anywhere from $50 to $100 depending on the cobbler!

Reptilian Leather

  • In general, you may care for your alligator, caiman, and lizard boots in the same way that you’d care for your calfskin or ostrich boots, except that we would recommend conditioning every month, regardless of the frequency of wear, to avoid leather cracking between scales
  • Store boots in a dry and dark place
  • Alternate boot-wearing days to let boots properly dry out
  • Ideally, store with tissue, newspaper, or a cedar shoe tree that does not stretch the leather
  • Brush dirt off after every wear with a horsehair brush; use a damp cloth if necessary

Suede Leather

  • Store boots in a dry and dark place
  • Alternate boot-wearing days to let boots properly dry out
  • Ideally, store with tissue, newspaper, or a cedar shoe tree that does not stretch the leather
  • Brush dirt off after every wear with a horsehair brush; use a damp cloth if necessary
  • Conditioning & Polishing
  • Do not condition or polish your suede leather as you would with smooth or exotic leathers! This will damage the suede.
  • Cleaning Suede
  • It is normal for suede leather to hold dirt more easily than smooth leathers, which can make them more difficult to clean. The best way to clean suede is either using a cleaner designed specifically for suede or using a suede ‘eraser.’ In the latter case, you may use an eraser to lightly scrub dirty areas, following up with buffing the nap (the ‘fuzz’) clean with a suede brush.

This typically runs anywhere from $50 to $100 depending on the cobbler!

Denim

  • You can wash your jeans as much or as little as you like, but generally, we recommend washing them inside-out, in cold water, and with like colors.
  • Feel free to tumble dry or air dry them. We recommend air drying to reduce the risk of shrinkage.
  • Color will fade naturally over time - watch them age beautifully with every wear!
  • PLEASE NOTE: We use natural indigo dye to make our denim, which means the color can transfer onto lighter colored fabric or upholstery, especially before it has been washed multiple times. This is called 'crocking' - to reduce crocking, wash your jeans by themselves before you wear them for a long period of time.
