I ordered a pair of Brown 1000 miles and per recommendation here have decided to oil them before I wear them. I live in California and don't experience much rain and won't be using the boots for much (if any) outdoorsy things (hiking, etc). Is there an oil recommendation that will protect the boots with my kind of use that will change the color only minimally? Also, should I oil the soles before having a vibram half sole on?
Thanks a lot!
Venetian shoe cream is what I would recommend. I probably wouldn't oil the sole if you plan to have a half sole installed.
