Ok time to find the filson oil locally.  If not i will be calling your store.  I havent even worn the 1ks yet, and im already thinking about getting another pair soon.

I bought these boots on my NYC trip and it came with this kit. I forgot to take out the conditioner and put it in my check in bag. Needless to say security took my conditioner and let everything else pass.

My question is, is there another conditioner I should get or will the creme that is in the kit be enough to clean and protect? I've had the boots for 2 months and haven't applied any product. I'm in Houston so we don't deal with snow and we are going through a small drought.

Thanks to an incident I got myself into while rock hunting it became necessary for me to wear insoles with my 1Ks and they are TTS. The insoles haven't made that much of a difference. The only time I notice a fit change is when I'm wearing heavy wool socks.

You aren't going to remove the snoseal. The three products you've mentioned are all heavy with beeswax and that wax is what protects the leather from moisture. I'm not sure where you heard that PB or LP shines up better because none of them shine up really. Over time the waxy feeling will go away. Now with all of that said the leather itself is heavy with oil and wax and that's part of the tanning process. All of the talk about oils and beeswax compounds you here us yakking about is designed to replace the oils and waxes in this type of leather. "I" don't worry about chromexcel, predator or inferno leather feeling oily or waxy. It's supposed to be that way and when it isn't I have plenty of oil and beeswax to fix that.

I'm also wondering if you snosealed them using the method I have outlined? Without sufficient heat snoseal and the rest of the heavy duty treatments just sit on the surface.

This was my thought as well. My sno-sealed boots do not come off as overtly waxy.

post #2209 of 6933
I followed your method exactly, and most of it soaked right into the leather. The coating is not overly waxy at all, just ever so slightly waxy. I'm a boot noob, so that's probably why I'm being so nitpicky with my CXL. I wont worry about it haha

CXL is not like regular leather, is doesn't has a shine but more of a glow.

I've been reading this thread for a few days after seeing these boots on sale for half off ($167) at a local store here in Chicago. I decided to pull the trigger on some tan ones as the price was ridiculous. Here they are, 3 miles in.

Good stuff, natels! I love that color! Hope you enjoy them as much as I have my rust-colored 1k's!

The Akira Men's Store on North Ave near Damen. I checked it out on a whim and it was definitely worth it. I know they had a 10, 10.5+ in the tan color, 7.5 in rust, and not sure about black. I'm not entirely sure if the sale extended passed this weekend, but it is definitely worth a shot, seems like they're dumping inventory.

Wore mine while helping a buddy out in Colorado search for a new plot of land. Just a little elbow grease and you'd never notice.

Oh absolutely. If I didn't have a topy on there I'd probably be getting on near resoling at this point.
