Renewing Leather Boots: The Francesco

It’s been  a year that I’ve been kicking my Francesco boots through the mud. They’ve broken in perfectly and look like they’ve got some character now – which is awesome – but, they need some love to ensure they stay in great condition for years to come. It’s like cleaning your car, every now and they you gotta do it.

I’ve renewed and polished them at least 3 times up to this point – so this would be the 4th renewal they’re going through. I filmed the process and made a quick 1 minute video to show you the steps involved in properly renewing the upper and sole.

The cobbler in the video is my teacher, and good friend Yadi, of Yadi Shoe Repair, located at 3560 Rutherford Road. Call him up, and tell him Markus sent you 905 832 8777 for all your shoe repair and leather repair needs.
