Brush your snakeskin boots gently with a boot brush. Go against the scales. This loosens any dirt or dust lodged underneath the scales.
Dampen a soft cloth and wipe down the boots, this time in the direction of the rattlesnake scales. Allow boots to dry.
Apply several thin coats of reptile conditioner to the boots. Gently rub in the conditioner, following the grain of the scales.
Apply a thin layer of a nonsilicone water repellent for added protection. Follow the manufacturer's directions on the label.
