How often should I oil them if I wear them heavily? Once very couple of months?
Also, How long should I wait for them to dry before wearing them and how long until I put on the Obenauf's LP? Just overnight before wearing and then put the LP on them in a few days?
Depending on your planned use, I wouldn't have applied any product to the Alden 401 at all before wearing
I am looking into getting some black Wolverine 1000 Mile boots. I gave my brother a pair of the brown version a two years ago, and they look great with light wear (wear during fall and winter, some rain). That's how I would wear any Wolverines I buy, so I don't think I would put anything on them before wearing. Occasional applications of Venetian or Saphir should do after.
