The Cole Haan Boots Sizing Guide

How To Care For Your Cole Haan Boots
To preserve or add to the life of your favorite Cole Haan boots will take some care and maintenance, and this can vary depending on the material your boots are made from. Cole Haan has also developed a range of shoe care products designed specifically to keep your boots looking their best.
The brand’s All-Purpose Cleaner can be used on a variety of materials. It’s an easy-to-use foam that can be applied to a damp cloth and rubbed into your boots to spot clean.
Cole Haan’s Leather Conditioner should be used on all smooth leather boots, but not suede or nubuck. Leather boots need moisture to remain soft and supper, and overtime they can dry out. Apply this conditioner to restore moisture to your boots.
To clean Cole Haan suede boots, brush away loose dirt from uppers. You can then apply the brand’s All-Purpose Cleaner with a damp, white cotton cloth and spot clean. Allow to dry naturally.
