Hi Pete, you can clean your Mt. Tams with saddle soap, and then polish with a neutral color, or quick shine. Most grocery and drug stores have a shoe care isle where these items can be found. For the soles, check the home cleaning isle for a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser- we find that does a great job cleaning the soles.
Hello! Thank you for your question. We hand-craft these boots with a special, oil-tanned leather developed in partnership with our tanner. While not completely waterproof, this very natural-looking leather has a beautiful soft 'hand' and resists water. These boots are fully leather lined in glove-soft cowhide leather that is hung inside the shoe with soft padding surrounding the foot.
Hello, thank you for your inquiry. Unfortuantely, I do not think these boots will work for your husband. While we do have them available in wide, our wide is an EE, so they would likely pinch the sides of his feet.
