While styling your boots how do you like them to look? Brand new or with life? Personally, I'd prefer life... Reason being is there simply work boots, they shouldn't look fresh out of the box as you wear them annually. As well, I prefer my boots to age with me, throughout the years life will bring dings and dents,allow your boots to show(unless you have a perfect life). There will be times you can walk through the mud or pavement...Take the mud, bring your boots to life... Sounds crazy right? Try it!!
