Reddit seems to be the spiritual home for the use of coconut oil for shoe/boot care and, err, other things.
Reddit and not one mention of coconut oil .....
Glad you like the final reults
Not normal. I would not have expected to see this after carrying an empty 257 for a short length of time. Contact Filson support and see if they will ship you a new pad.
Not looking too bad at all.
Post images. It would be intetesting to see the results. I wonder if using a hair dryer would help dry the oil and help lighten the colour ?
It didn't look aged after 4 years of use ?Filson oil is a liquid, the LP is more of a paste. Of the two I suspect that the LP will be better for use on canvas as the oil, IMHO, will simply saturate the fabric. If you intend to use Filson wax, why use the obenaufs on the fabtic ?FWIW - I use Obenaufs on the leather of my bags and I make my own DIY Greenland wax - using beewax and paraffin wax - for the fabric.The Greenland wax cools to a solid wax and I then apply it in...

If you search this thread you will find that some have encountered this issue and other have not. Common responses are 'find a different cobbler' or 'use a different adhesive'.Is it a really heavy sole or a light, thin one ?My formula has always been to wear a new boot/shoe for a few weeks to get some wear on them (and possibly to leach out any leather oil from the sole, although this is not something I think of) and then to take them to get Topy'd.
