Protect Your Boots Posted by: Tanalina Post Date: November 30, 2012 No Comments

Well fashionistas, after the blog about great boot trends, it is only fitting that I give you some advice on how to keep those boots looking their best. Tana® has so many great products to do just that.

Tana® Cleaning Lotion

For those great leather boots there is the Tana® Cleaning Lotion. It gently cleans and conditions smooth and natural leather footwear and accessories, to prevent drying and cracking, and leaves a renewed appearance.


  • Remove loose dirt with a soft brush or clean cloth
  • Shake bottle well and apply a small amount onto a clean, soft cloth and work into the leather. Allow to dry, buff with a soft cloth or finishing brush

Tana® Patent Leather Care

To keep those sexy patent boots looking their best, use Tana® – Leather Patent Care. This product can also be used on pearlized, metallic, and reptile leathers, to keep it clean and revitalized. Tana® – Leather Patent Care has a combination of cleaners, waxes and silicone oil which is specially formulated to clean, condition and preserve the gloss of these specially treated types of leather.


  • Remove dirt and dust with a clean cloth or brush
  • Shake well, hold can 15-20 cm away
  • Spray entire surface in a circular motion
  • Shine with a clean, soft cloth

Tana® Suede and Nubuck Cleaner

For those of you who love their suede as much as I do, then you have to use Tana® – Suede and Nubuck Protector and Tana® – Suede and Nubuck Cleaner products. These products can be used on all colours of suede or nubuck.

The Tana® – Suede and Nubuck Protector has a formula that dries quickly to protect napped leathers and makes them last longer. It creates an invisible shield to repel the elements, and it prevents dirt from setting on to the fabric, which makes for easier cleaning.


  • Clean article thoroughly prior to protecting
  • Hold can upright, 15-20 cm away and spray entire article in a circular motion
  • Do not saturate. Allow to dry
  • Re-apply every 8 to 10 wearings for optimal protection

The Tana® – Suede and Nubuck Cleaner cleans, conditions and restores nap. This is specially formulated to remove most spots and stains, while softening and conditioning the material. This product has a bristled cap for cleaning and restoring the nap of the material, which is really handy, because you can carry it with you at all times.


  • Brush suede or nubuck to remove dirt
  • Shake well, hold can 15-20 cm away and spray footwear evenly
  • Wipe clean with a soft, dry, colorfast cloth

If you have a light coloured boot, please just be aware that the material will darken during the treatment, but it will dry to its original shade.

Tana® Style 16

If you aren’t 100% sure of the material of your boots, you can use the Tana® Style 16® – Universal Protector. This product is for all colours of genuine or imitation leather, suede, nubuck and fabric. The great thing about this product is that you can use it on handbags, luggage, wallets, briefcases, and other accessories. This is a product that is always in my closet, as it always comes in handy. I should tell you however; you can’t use this on patent reptile, metallic leather, or vinyl.

The Tana® Style 16® – Universal Protector repels the elements and resists stains. The product has an advanced formula that creates an invisible shield that lets the material breathe as it repels the elements and prevents dirt from setting for easier cleaning.


  • Item must be clean and dry
  • Hold can upright, 15-20 cm away and spray entire article in a circular motion
  • Do not saturate. Allow to dry
  • For maximum protection, reapply regularly

These are just a few of the amazing products that Tana® has for taking care of those great boots. You can find all of these great products at your local store that sells shoes.


Fall Boot Trends 2012 Posted by: Tanalina Post Date: November 20, 2012 No Comments

One of the greatest things about fall is the boots, as I’m sure many of my fashionistas out there will agree. So I thought that it would be a good time to talk about the hottest boot trends for Fall 2012, and believe me when I say, you won’t be disappointed!

The first thing on the list has to be Ankle boots (shorter boots or booties as they are sometimes called). This style is very hot this year with many designers releasing their own style. You can get them in every heel height, from flat and kitten to wedge and stiletto and everything in between.

Ankle boots

Another amazing trend is the over the knee high boots. These boots have a sleek and sophisticated look and are great for both casual and dressy occasions. They are sexy and powerful and will absolutely make you feel that way. These look great with your favourite tights or skinny jeans.

Knee high boots

For those of you who like that comfortable edgy feeling, military boots are for you. This style has a lace-up front closure and comes in more neutral colours. These boots come in a flat sole, which makes them easy for everyday wear, and are a comfortable mid-calf height. You can also get them in a sexy stiletto heel for a fun night out on the town.

Military boots

The greatest trend for all of these boots is that you can get them all in a detailed style which gives them a fun and flashy feel. I am talking about glitter and sequins, animal prints and great textures. I love these for adding a lot of fun to any outfit.

Flashy boots

After reading about all of these great boots for 2012, I hope that it has inspired you to go out and find that great pair of boots that you just can’t live without. Please remember to take good care of your boots and keep them looking their best. The best way to do this is by using Tana® cleaners and protectors. Tana® has a wide range of products for any type of shoe. My favourite is the Tana® All Protector® which is excellent for most types of footwear, including all colours of genuine or imitation leather, suede, nubuck and fabric.
