How to Make Your Cowboy Boots Last Longer

cowboy bootsWhen you find a pair of cowboy boots that you really love, it’s often hard to wear anything else. There’s nothing quite like a pair of boots that fits you just right and goes well with everything in your closet. So when that pair of cowboy boots wear out and can’t be worn anymore, it can be like losing a friend. The good news is, if you pay some care and attention to your favorite pair of cowboy boots, they could last a lifetime. Here are easy things you can do to make your cowboy boots last longer.

  • Start by purchasing only high-quality boots that are made by a reputable company, and make sure they are the correct size. When it comes to cowboy boots, there is some truth to the old adage “you get what you pay for.” A good pair of Corral, Lucchese, or Old Gringo boots will last longer, not to mention feel way more comfortable, than any boots you buy at a big-box discount store.
  • Remove dirt and dust regularly to keep your boots clean and looking good. If you’ve been out in the mud, a good scrub, conditioning, and polish is in order.
  • If your cowboy boots get wet, let them air dry. Never dry them near any kind of heat source, such as a wood stove, furnace vent, or hair dryer. This will destroy the leather.
  • When removing your boots at the end of the day, don’t use the left boot’s toe to slide the right heel off your foot, and vice versa. This will damage the heels of your cowboy boots. Use the boot tabs at the top of the shaft to pull the boots off.
  • Store your boots upside down to avoid wrinkling along the shaft. Also, make sure that your pets can’t access your boots; not only will this avoid chewing damage, but cats rubbing on your boots will leave behind hair and oils, which can discolor the leather.

Following these basic steps will keep your high-quality cowboy boots looking good for many years. Rocky Top Leather proudly carries a wide range of men’s and women’s cowboy boots from the best brands in the business. In addition, we offer an excellent selection of boot care products you can use to maintain the condition of your boots. Check out our selection of cowboy boots – you are sure to fall in love with a pair or two.

CMA Music Festival: Where Fans, Fashion and Fun Meet

2014 CMA Music FestivalCMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock was actually filmed over a four-day span in June. The magic of editing transformed the best performances at the festival into a three-hour television special for the enjoyment of those of us who couldn’t make it to the real deal. This year’s special was hosted by Little Big Town, who also interviewed some of the biggest names in country music. Outstanding festival performances by Florida Georgia Line, Carrie Underwood & Miranda Lambert, Faith Hill & Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, and so many more country superstars kept the show rocking.

So why do the biggest names in country music continue to gather in Nashville for the CMA Music Festival summer after summer? Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman says, “Because this is all about the fans. Country artists never forget where we came from and who got us here. They take photos with us, we hear their stories, meet their new children and grandchildren. It’s heaven.”

Schlapman says that even stars like her get starstruck at the CMA Music Festival. “[LBT's] Karen Fairchild and I got to interview Tim McGraw, only we turned into goofy, giddy schoolgirls and lost the ability to talk in complete sentences.” It’s probably safe to say that the rest of us would have had the same reaction!

One of the most talked-about parts of this year’s CMA Music Festival was not just the performance by Lambert & Underwood, but their short shorts and metallic corsets. While Rocky Top Leather doesn’t carry corsets, we do have some pretty fierce ladies leather vests and halter tops. You’re on your own for the barely-there shorts. And if you also admired Lambert’s metallic silver cowboy boots, you should check out our impressive selection of womens’ cowboy boots from top brands including Twisted X, Corral, Circle G, and Old Gringo. And as always, our fast shipping, excellent customer service, and unbeatable prices are yours to enjoy!

2014 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally to Debut Electric Hog

sturgis motorcycle rallyThe 2014 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally kicked off this weekend in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The yearly event showcases entertainment, activities, and new products that center around Harley-Davidson motorcycles and the riders who love them. Test ride opportunities will include Project RUSHMORE bikes, LowRider, and SuperLow 1200T models. Over in the women’s area, Rebel One is hosting the JUMPSTART Rider Experience and Bike Lift Seminars on how to properly lift a dropped motorcycle. Plus, a stunt show and displays by companies including Craftsman and Weber mean that there is plenty to see, do, try, and buy in Sturgis this year.

One exciting addition to this year’s rally is Project LiveWire, which is Harley Davidson’s first electric motorcycle. While Project LiveWire is not yet available for sale, it will be prominently displayed in Sturgis to generate interest and gauge the public’s reaction to the electric bike. An electric Harley could drive a whole new wave of riders to the popular brand. But what will die-hard Harley fans think of a silent hog? We are eager to find out!

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Harley Davidson and Marvel Studios announced that Project LiveWire will be featured in next summer’s installment of The Avengers movie franchise. Scarlett Johansson’s character, Black Widow, will ride a LiveWire in the film. Harley’s Street 750 will also return to the blockbuster franchise, probably as Captain America’s (Chris Evans) ride.

Unfortunately, Rocky Top Leather isn’t attending the rally because we are busy stocking the best merchandise we can find for our customers. If you are attending the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally this week, we would love it if you would visit our Facebook page and share some photos of your experiences with us.

Big Back-to-School Savings on Kids Cowboy Boots

hotpink kids cowboy bootsParents, here we are again: school shopping season. Sometimes I think it would be nice to just buy something like a suit of armor for my son and be done with it. A suit of armor would be ultra-durable, and when he grows a few inches, we can just add an extra piece of metal here or there to make the suit bigger.

Suit of armor is dirty? A damp cloth will take care of that.

Wore a hole in the knee? (Yep, leave it to my kid to put a hole through a piece of metal.) Just replace that chunk of knee metal. Good as new.

Unfortunately, a suit of armor is probably not considered fashion-forward at my son’s school. Until that day comes, parents want highly durable clothes and footwear for our kids. We want stuff that will last at least until it’s outgrown by one child, preferably more. This is one thing that makes kids cowboy boots spectactular – they are definitely built to last.

Rocky Top Leather stocks high-quality, stylish kids cowboy boots for children of all sizes and sensibilities. From newborns to big kids, we have great boots for your entire brood. For your girly girls we have super cute pink and white cowgirl boots; embroidered hearts, stars, and wings; fringe and tassles. For your rough-and-tumble girls and your little boys, we have lots of other options for colors and styles of kids cowboy boots. With brands like Roper, John Deere, and Twisted X, you will have no problem outfitting each child with just the right pair of kids cowboy boots for their personality and style.

Perhaps the best part of Rocky Top Leather’s selection of kids cowboy boots is our unbeatable prices. We consistently set our prices well below suggested retail. Plus, when you pay with PayPal, you could avoid payments and interest for six months. And with our $9.95 flat rate shipping, your kids cowboy boots can arrive at your door, for much less expense than you might expect.

5 Steps to Properly Maintain Your Cowboy Boots

Corral cowboy boots rhinestone cross wingYour trusty leather cowboy boots serve you well. Whether your days involve working, running errands, chasing kids, showing horses, or all of the above, your cowboy boots carry you through in comfort and style. They ask very little in return, but eventually, neglect will make your boots look haggard. Think about it – leather is skin, and it needs to be cleaned and conditioned regularly, just like the skin on your face. Below are five easy steps to keeping your cowboy boots looking good for many more years to come.

  1. Clean your cowboy boots with leather cleaner and a damp cloth after you wear them. Just getting the dust of the day off your boots will do a lot of good for them.
  2. Occasionally condition your boots with the appropriate product for their specific material type. Suede, finished leather, and exotic materials all have different conditioner requirements. Only condition your boots when they start losing their luster.
  3. Apply a water and stain protectant after conditioning your boots. This will prevent damage to the leather and keep them looking good.
  4. Always allow wet cowboy boots to air-dry naturally. Never dry your boots with a heat source, such as a blow dryer or a heat vent. This can cause serious damage to the leather.
  5. Store your boots in a way that keeps them from folding over and developing unsightly creases. A boot tree works great for this purpose, or you can just stuff some paper in them to keep them upright.

Rocky Top Leather carries several high-quality leather care products that will help you clean and maintain your cowboy boots. One of our favorite leather care products is the Auburn Leather Complete 3 Step Leather Care System. This complete leather care package includes leather cleaner, weatherproofer/conditioner, and color restorer that will help you cowboy boots look like new for a long time to come.
