The correct way to clean your boot can vary by leather type, but there are a few points you always should keep in mind.
Plain tap water is ideal for everyday cleaning of your boots, it is the easiest on the leather. Do not use saddle soap, despite popular belief, saddle soap can actually harm your boots.

Your boots require oil to stay healthy, but always avoid over conditioning. Adding too much oil can saturate the boot and cause an oily feel to the touch.
The welt area of the boot can be a little more difficult to clean & a brush with soft bristles may be required. Work around the welt area gently to loosen the dried dirt and oil. Afterward wipe with a dry, clean & soft cloth.
Lastly, boot trees can be used to preserve the overall shape of the boot. Especially once the leather has gotten damp. Boot trees can help your boots look great for years.
