I think I'll just have to deal with it. Actually I've already gotten over it due to the thoughts of shipping it over.

Does anyone oil the inside of the boot?

Not unless they want stained socks. Don't over oil your boots you will make the leather TOO soft and spongy. No need to oil the inside EVER.

Read this article with a representative from Whites giving an interview to hotshotsfitness.com which is a firefighter website. He talks about boot care and over oiling.

Great article, thanks for sharing.

You need to send them back and have them change out hooks for eyelets.  For the money being paid, you should get what you ordered.  They're supposed to be custom boots and you're paying the price for custom.  They made a mistake - you shouldn't just live with their mistake.  The laces is an easy thing -t hey messed up mine as well - took a few emails to Bakers to get them to send the right ones but no big deal there.  If my boots that I waited for 8 weeks for and paid that much money for were wrong, no way would I live with it.

What if my boots have a leather liner?

 

There is extra leather throughout the boot which probably means I need greater quantity of oil. The inside does not suffer from the weather like the outside but socks and the feet are usually in contact to the liner so it might absorb some oil contained in the leather liner.

That being said, do I still need to oil inside?

I've never considered doing and don't plan on doing it in the future. If you feel the need to based on excessive dryness then it might help but otherwise I see no reason to.
