I noticed that you mentioned Working Boots. Here is the best option I can come up with. This picture is showing a pair of Derby Boots made in Reversed Waxed Calf, which means you have the flesh side out. This is a very old method to avoid scratches and damage to the surface. The flesh side also allow you to keep the boot well greased, this to prevent water penetration. After some time you bone the surface of the boot, followed by a mixture of cod lever oil and sheep tallow. It sounds terrible, but when mixed it smells very fresh and nice.
You wount get a polished surface with that treatment, but if you need a more bright finish you may use ordinary shoe polish with the highest possible wax content. I hope you find what you are looking for! In the end of the day, it depends on how much you can spend, I suppose?
