I remember the first time I laid my eyes on the Red Wing Heritage Classic Lifestyle 6” Moc Boot. Working at a shoe repair, a customer brought in a pair with the stitching undone. It was only a $15 fix, but looking at the boot, I could tell that they were something special. The customer said they were the best boots he’d ever worn and would always buy a new pair of the same boot when the man wore out his current pair. The Red Wings looked like they were the perfect work boot.
With such an expertly crafted work boot, you would want them to look their best with the world’s best shoe cleaner. Shoe MGK has cleaned leather boots since 1992 and really knows how to treat the leather and make the Red Wings shine.
So let’s get into how to clean Red Wing Heritage Classic Lifestyle 6″ Moc Boot with the Shoe MGK Leather Care Kit.
How to Clean Red Wing Heritage Classic Lifestyle 6″ Moc Boot with Shoe MGK Cleaner and Conditioner
I spoke with the customer as I looked over their boots. He was a construction worker, and his company provided the boots for him. They had fantastic traction but would get dirty while on the job. Often times he said he’d come home with his boots covered in mud and concrete. That is why utilizing the Shoe MGK Cleaner and Conditioner is crucial. The shoe cleaner soaks into the leather, attacking and breaking down dirt and debris on the molecular level. This process gives your shoes a deep clean that has them looking fresh and feeling smooth.
- Prep the Red Wings by wiping off excess dirt and debris from the shoes with a dry microfiber towel.
- Wet the bristle brush and drizzle the product over the brush. Apply the solution to the shoe in small circular motions, covering the shoe.
- Once covered, wipe clean with a dry towel. Repeat these steps until the shoe is clean!
How to Treat the Leather of Red Wing Heritage Classic Lifestyle 6″ Moc Boot with Shoe MGK Leather Cream
Working at a shoe repair, it was always the peddler’s goal to return the shoes in better condition than what was initially taken into the shop. That often went beyond the repair. My boss would clean the shoes and polish the leather. When it comes to protecting, restoring, and shining the leather, the Shoe MGK Leather cream has no competition. The cream is an all-in-one leather care product that leaves a lasting shine with no buffing. In addition, the Leather Cream moisturizes the uppers to prevent drying, cracking, and scuffing. Meaning you extend the life of your boat shoes.
- Apply the leather cream with a clean towel or sponge.
- Massage the cream into the leather. The solution dries fast and will beautifully hydrate your leather!
- Finally, remove the laces from the solution and wring out cleaner and dirt. Let dry before re-lacing your shoes.
Red Wings are one of the most stunning boots I have ever witnessed working at the shoe repair. With the Shoe MGK Leather Care Kit, you have all the tools to ensure your shoes last. Remember to respect your shoes!
