Also, my 1000 Mile boots are going on four years of wear (including 3 Canadian winters) and are only now going to go in for a re-sole after the Vibram topy started separating at the toe and my feet started getting wet last winter. I'm curious to see how the leather sole held up (although I suspect there will be some hidden damage). I'm taking them to a well-reviewed yet unfamiliar local cobbler - wish me luck. I might toss up some of my "well-worn" pics.
Pictures if the before and after would be awesome.

which oil is everyone using on their wolverines?

I don't use any oil on my CXL Alden Indys

I don't use oil on my boots. I've always been a fan of mink oil because it is easy to apply. The key is not to over do it as it will darken the boots too much.

I find that obenaufs leather oil every month or so works great and then lp every six months is a really great combo

an occasional venetian shoe creaming works fine

Do you like that boot oil?  Which color Wolverine are you using it on?

post #3743 of 6617
Filson boot oil. If I didn't have an endless supply it would be Obenauf's. I use it on a pair of brown 1Ks, on a pair of tan Addisons and on a pair of #8 shell cordovan 721 LTDs.

I use Chamberlain's number 3 which is a natural cleaner, deep conditioner and water repellant.

It's a universal product type and would work for those who don't do really rough stuff with their leather. I touched on this subject several times in the past.

Pretty nice pics, very rich color on the leather, M. The second pic though, i would lump it with other NSFW pics.

Thanks! I'll probably go with the Obenaufs boot oil, seems a bit easier to obtain for me ... I have LP already at home but figured I go with something lighter than the LP

Received some of the fiebings edge sole sealer (brown) about a week ago and am very happy with it. Have not seen many people here comment on it before so figured i chime in. Got it for about 6 bucks and change after shipping. The edges of my soles were pretty beat up and the sealer returned them to a uniform color. I find the boots noticeably better looking with the cleaner sole edge

A local cobbler recommended spraying the boots with a silicon water resistance spray, let dry overnight, then apply mink oil. Seems like overkill?
