Waterproof & Oiled Leather Care


Waterproof & Oiled leather is made with minimal finishing materials, which creates a distinctive natural look and feel. It is waterproof, perspiration, and stain resistatant, and exceptionally durable. Waterproof & Oiled leather has been used to build countless Red Wing styles over the years. Actively maintaining leather is the most effective way to ensure integrity and longevity. Learn more with our Red Wing care guides.

Cleaning Boot

1. Clean

Use warm water and a brush to remove dirt from footwear. Dry with a cloth. For heavily soiled areas, apply Waterproof Leather Cleaner with a cloth or brush. Wipe cleaner away with a damp cloth and allow leather to dry.

Condition Boot

2. Condition

Apply a light, even coat of All Natural Boot Oil to leather with fingers, cloth or sponge. Proper conditioning keeps leather healthy and extends the life of footwear.

Protect Boot

Lightly mist footwear with Leather Protector six to eight inches away from the leather in a sweeping motion. Leather Protector provides a shield against dirt and moisture. It will not darken footwear.
