Oil-Tanned leather is made with minimal finishing materials, which creates a distinctive natural look and feel. Oil-Tanned leather is exceptionally durable and has been used to build countless Red Wing styles over the years. It is water, stain, and perspiration resistant. Actively maintaining leather is the most effective way to ensure integrity and longevity. Learn more with our Red Wing care guides.
Use warm water and a brush to remove dirt from footwear. Dry with a cloth. For heavily soiled areas, apply Foam Leather Cleaner with a cloth or brush. Wipe cleaner away with a damp cloth and allow leather to dry.
Apply a light, even coat of All Natural Boot Oil, Mink Oil, or All Natural Leather Conditioner to leather with fingers, cloth, or sponge. Proper conditioning keeps leather healthy and extends the life of footwear.
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.
