Caring for Your Tactical BootsService members have required great-quality boots for ages, and that hasn’t changed one bit. But tactical boots in our modern day are incredible compared with the boots of even 20 years back. The new materials used to make them lighter and tougher than ever before. So you’ve just chosen the boots you’ll be wearing for months or years to come and you’re satisfied. But selecting a quality boot is only the first step on this journey. Next, you’ll need to ensure that your shoes stay in great shape with some extra care. The following tips will help your tactical boots last longer:
- Remove Dirt Buildup: Cleaning your boots isn’t just about how they look; it will help them last longer, too. Dirt is abrasive and can gradually eat away at the outside of your shoes, so wipe them down on a regular basis. A simple damp cloth with some mild soap should do the trick, but make sure you are caring for your boots properly if they’re made from real leather.
- Keep a Spare Pair: It’s best to have not one, but two pairs of tactical boots. Break in both pairs and rotate them instead of wearing only one pair every day. This will ensure that you always have a pair ready if something happens to one of them.
- How to Break In Your Boots: The last important consideration you must make as a proud new boot owner is properly breaking them in. You can’t simply take a pair of boots out of the box and expect them to immediately be ready for a 10 hour shift on your feet. Instead, put them on and take short walks at first to see how they feel. Work your way up to longer periods of time until they start feeling more comfortable. While you may get lucky with some shoes, most will require this extra period to fit right.
