Hello, youtube, good morning.

Good morning.

Good morning, tgif, goodness.

Good morning.

Welcome to my youtube channel today is going to be a really.

I mean, this video is going to be really quick because it's simply reviewing and um, basically going over.

Uh, what I discussed yesterday, which was cleaning, um, ink and conditioning leather boots that I found at a resale shop, these I'm, prepping and getting them ready to be posted to my poshmark page if you haven't done.

So already I can be found at seven love souls, that's.

The number seven l, o, v, e, s, o, l.

E, s, welcome to my youtube channel.

It's, early this morning, too look, look how it suddenly came completely up yet and I'm already talking to my youtube family.

I don't, even think the birds all up, because I don't hear a whole lot of chirping yet, but I didn't feed them either so maybe that's.

It anywho let's get right into it so that I could keep my promise and make this a short video.

You remember yesterday, I had pulled out a pair of sam edelman and a paraborn, riding style boot.

So the sam edelman needed to be cleaned out and then and then cleaned and then conditioned, if you remember, I used my saddle soap to clean, and then you did not get an opportunity to see me condition them because I did that offline, sorry, but I will show you the conditioning that I use and how I condition them today.

And then the born remember, I had already cleaned those out previously.

They just needed to be, um cleaned on the outside.

So I used saddle soap for that, and then they needed to be conditioned, because they were extremely dry.

I was concerned that conditioning might not even bring them back to, um, you know, good, good, good condition.

Well, I stuffed the boots as I promised, um.

And then I conditioned them last night to see what they were how they would turn out.

And they actually turned out really really good.


Go ahead and start with the sam edelman.

If you remember, this is the sam the sam edelman penny.

It is in a size eight and a half.

No it's, oh, gosh.

I don't have my readers, you know, sorry, it's in a size, eight, um.

And this one is a white cap.

So this is a wide calf of the penny in black.

So, um, remember, it has the sam edelman detail right there isn't that cute has a pull tab has the snap here to to keep your, um, your zip tab from being unruly.

And then it has the bag zip beautiful lining on the inside soft to the touch.

Remember, I used my toothbrush to clean that.

And then I've already stuffed it as you can see stuff stuff the toe because I don't like for it to um to cave in if it doesn't have to.

So this is, uh, the sam edema.

So let's, take a look and see how the cleaning and conditioning went overall.

There's, no scuffs, there's, no scratches.

There look at the toe it's been conditioned.

So it looks pretty good that almost looks like it looks dry on this picture, but it doesn't look dry in person, but I still have my conditioner.

So the conditioner that I used for this.

These was the leather seal, mainly because I was concerned with the um with the bourne boot.

And because I was concerned with the bourne boot, I brought out the big dogs for both of them that's.

What I call this because this does wonders.

So I still have my little, um microfiber hand.

So yeah, looks good turned out really really good, beautiful boot and that'll be listed to my poshmark page this.

Weekend let's, take a look at the other one, those total areas.

And you remember, if you remember this boot, if you took a look at the video, this boot had the um water markings or the salt markings on the side here.

And I was concerned that they weren't going to come out.

Look at it really clean really good.

They look really really good.

So they turned out very well, I'm, very happy with the way that they turned out.

They have since been cleaned and treated with leather conditioner and leather seal.

So the leather seal, the um, the leather seal that I use the conditioner that I use for these is also a waterproof bar.

So it should help prevent that those water stains in the future for whoever decides to purchase them, see turned out really really good.

They look really good, actually, wow, I'm really happy with them.

So next was my, um, it wasn't.

My concern was the uh born boot.

Now this is super super, oh, this is cute.

I love.


So let me start.

So it has a smooth leather here.

It has the born little, um symbol there, uh in the back it has like buckle detail.

But it has this large goring tab to help with um flexibility in the calves, which I like get that personalized fit what I love about.

This boot is the stack heel.

This must be about a two inch.

Maybe I do have my trusted ruler, but I won't pull them out so it's, probably about a two inch heel here inside, uh.

I mean, it has this side zip full zip.

And inside has a lovely lining that makes it soft next to the skin very pretty as you can see.

I also stuff the toe on these, um to make sure that they don't buckle in so um.

What my concern was for this boot was the toe area.

So, uh, as you can see, it turned out really well, too with this leather seal.

Um, very, pretty look at that.

Oh, gosh.

She turned out better than I expected.


Take a look at the other one.

She she she's in really good condition.

Let's take a look at the other one and see see and then the tow area.

So you know, I was concerned that I wasn't going to be able to condition her enough to make her look presentable to my liking.

Of course, but as you can see, she turned out beautifully.

So both of these this one was a size let's, see what size this one was this looks like a size 7.

and a half maybe I'll have to have my readers seven or seven and a half in this one.

So both of them turned out very good it's, amazing, what a simple cleaning will do.

And some conditioner see my birds.

Finally, woke up they're out there.

Now, what? Um, what a little simple cleaning and conditioning will do for a boot.

It will definitely extend the life for these they're going to be water, waterproofed and conditioned.

So there should be no no watermarks or the like on these in the future.

So I'm, really glad they turned out.

Well, um, if you want to know, you know what I did with cleaning them check out my youtube video that I did yesterday, um, I did go ahead and post.

It right away.

It will share with you, um, my process of cleaning the boot, um.

And then, um today.

I mean for conditioning, I can I can condition.

I could add some more conditioner to it.

It won't hurt it.

So I use my my leather seal by outback.

You see that beautiful take my trusted little microfiber like towel.


I just get some conditioner on there.

And if you, um, you know, me, you know that I don't necessarily clean these after each use, because I love to have the build up of the oil in there.

And then I simply massage it on in there.

Then after I get it nice and massaged in there I'm gonna start to rub and that's, it they're ready to be they're going to be ready ready to be warm.

When whenever somebody buy them, I ship them out, and they should be ready to go.
