I found a "Timberland Boot Company" thread and a thread called "Official Shoe Care", but I decided to post here because I am a newbie. Here goes:
I have a pair of Timberland Earthkeepers and I want to start taking care of them. Timberland's website only mentions the following products in the Care Instructions:
Boot Sauce™ Cleaner, Balm Proofer™ All-Purpose Protector, Air Raider™ Boot & Shoe Refresher, Boot Sauce™ Conditioner
I know one's a leather cleaner, the second is a leather conditioner, third one is supposed to protect and help them repel water, and the last one is a "deodorant".
What I don't know is whether these cleaner, conditioner and protector are any good. Are they worth it?
The Earthkeepers aren't top-class boots so I'm not looking for the best treat for them. I just want them clean, conditioned and withstanding the rain while wearing them casually during the day. So should I go on and buy these Timberland products or should I look elsewhere?
Also, whatever product I buy, how do I apply it? Will I need a brush, a cloth?
Any help would be really appreciated, even directing me towards another thread, forum, resource, whatever.
