As you can see below, custom python cowboy boots make beautiful statement pieces.One of the greatest proponents for python is the wide array of patterns and color variations that it comes in. Some of our favorites python boots include two tone shades or metallic finishes. With this leather, it is important to note that it takes a considerable amount of maintenance. The scales need to be conditioned on a regular basis. We recommend the use of Bick 1 (leather cleaner) and Bick 4 (leather conditioner) as you must clean under the scales where dust can accumulate and harm the leather. However, if you don't mind that, this leather makes for beautiful handmade cowboy boots with a lot of shine and pizazz!
In order to properly upkeep your Python cowboy boots, you will need to maintain them on a regular basis. To begin, use a soft, dry towel to wipe in the direction of the scales. This will help remove any outward facing dirt and dust. If you choose to use water, keep in mind that too much can cause the membrane to dry and the eventual curling of the scales. Avoid this if at all possible. After the outer scales are cleaned, we recommend you address underneath the scales as well. Use a soft brush to gently remove residue, yet do not lift the scales up. Lastly, conditioning is very important, as it is with all leather. However, with Python it is important to use products specifically made for reptiles as they are lighter than your average leather conditioners and ideal for this type of hide.
Yes, python boots can be slightly more challenging to care for than your average calfskin boots. However, python also offers a look that few skins can rival!
