Caring for Your Thursdays

Keep your Thursdays looking their best.

Whether you need to polish out a minor imperfection in the leather or you are looking to help restore the original luster of your Thursdays after months of adventures, just follow these quick and easy steps!

Note: If you are looking to clean or treat Grizzly Wheat, Terracotta, or any "Rugged" Leathers (Tobacco, Arizona Adobe, Black Matte, Sandstone, Colorado, or Burnt Copper), click here for instructions. Do not follow the instructions below.

1. Prep your boots/shoes

The first thing you’ll want to do is unlace your boots or shoes and shake them together to loosen up and break away any excess dirt.

2. Wipe down boots/shoes

The next thing you’ll want to do is wipe down your Thursdays with a clean and dry rag to remove any dirt from the surface.

3. Apply leather balm

Use a dry rag to apply leather balm until boot is lightly covered, working the balm into all creases. We recommend using Venetian Imperial Leather Balm.

Note: It's okay if some color transfers over to the rag.

4. Buff with brush

Gently wipe off any excess leather balm until there is only a small film of balm on covering the surface of your boots/shoes. Once you're done, buff with a Horsehair Brush.

5. Wear and enjoy!

Let your boots/shoes dry for 5 to 10 minutes before wearing and then you’re good to go! Repeat the above steps as needed — we recommend every 1-2 months.

Special Care

  • Grizzly Wheat, Terracotta, and "Rugged" Leathers (Tobacco, Arizona Adobe, Black Matte, Sandstone, Colorado, or Burnt Copper)
  • To clean these leathers, you can use a damp rag to wipe them down, as well as a Horsehair Brush to remove any dirt on the surface.
  • Because these leathers are so unique, we do not recommend applying any cleaning or protective products to them. If additional cleaning is required, we recommend visiting your local cobbler or shoe repair shop so they can handle this professionally.
