Tip #3: Make a Protective Toe-Cap for Leather Boots — Lots of leather boots come with rubber toe caps to protect the leather from abrasion in this vulnerable spot, but many don’t. If your boots fall into the latter category and your precious toes are getting scuffed, try this quick, effective solution, which employs a urethane formula from McNett.
Step 1: Mark off the area you want to protect with a piece of tape.
Step 2: Lightly scuff up the toe area with sand paper.
Step 3: Wipe your scuff job down with rubbing alcohol to remove debris.
Step 4: Apply McNett’s Freesole Urethane Formula Shoe Repair to the top of the toe, and then use a foam brush, Popsicle stick, or a toothpick to move the adhesive over the entire section. Don’t worry about evening it out. The Freesole will self-adjust into a nice, smooth sheen.
Step 5: Remove the tape after about 30 minutes, then let your boots cure overnight. Done!
