Most podiatrists think most shoes are terrible for your feet anyway. I've been told the 1000 mile line is bad for my feet before.

Not really.

quick question.

 

Should i apply the oil first? then wait 24 hours. Then apply the LP? then wait 24 hours. Then reapply the oil?

It seems you're saying I should size to whatever my Brannock measurement is. Sorry, but I would swim in a 12.5D Wolverine 1000k or Alden Barrie lasted shoe.

/\/\/\ You didn't read the entire article and followed the links then. Your correct Brannock size is where you start.

Light coat of oil, wait a day or two then apply the LP. You're done until it's time to condition them again.
post #5045 of 6777

when you say light coat of oil, do you recommend using your hands to oil the boots or using a rag to oil the boots? 


Sorry for all of these questions. I am new at this.

You could go either way but the heat from your hands will help infuse the oil into the boot better.

Use a rag.

I have heard some people have had success using their tongue to apply the oil. smile.gif

how often do you condition your boots?

Really depends on the frequency and the condition it was worn.  Condition when they are feeling and looking dry, as they are skin.  Otherwise, brush the heck outta it.

When the leather feels dry and begins to feel stiff or after I totally immerse them when wading. You have to figure out your regimen. If you treated your boots with the same frequency as me your boots would be mush. There is no such thing as once a week, once a month or anything like that.

Crane, did you determine the width difference between D and 3E?

Not yet Lefty. I'll be at the store for a while tomorrow. Hopefully I have something that's the same model and size with just different widths on the shelf.

What do you guys think would be a fair price for these? Seller states they are firsts that have been worn for about ~ 1 month. Thanks!

Does anyone know why the supposedly 1 month old boots bonedout posted above look way more deep brown with no hints of red, while my brand new Wolverine Browns below look less brown and have a much stronger reddish hue? (I put them next to Clark's Desert Boots in Beeswax for reference. No flash was used.)
