Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 49
i think regular brushing is more important than treating the leather, unless you are exposed to some serious wet conditions. Get yourself a Star brand horsehair brush and brush them off after each wear. Most people over-do the leather treatments. Under normal circumstances, just Obenauf them every 4 months or so and you should be ok.
Im getting the dress brown leather from White's...sorry if I sound like a newby, but brushing? ive had smokejumpers for around ten years fighting fires, and have the obenouf's thing down, but am new to brushing. could you please fill a new to sd's guy in? thank you all for the responses!
You all have heard or seen cracks in leather boots - those are either caused by drying out or by small dust particles getting into the creases and acting like sandpaper. Thats why just a brush after use is a very good idea. A moisture coating (conditioner) an even better one. Brush often, condition every so often...
