Dont need renomat really.  Just clean with damp cloth, cream polish over, then wax polish.

 

Black/burnished look is just too Cliche, #menswear, gaudy, trendy.

Shrugs yea could look a tad cliched, but in my opinion looks better than scuffs,
Well to each their own 8)

Yup.  Personal preferences.

 

You can tattoo over your scars or wear them proud.  I like the latter.  :)

Before I ruin them by just trying it, does anybody have experience treating AE Brown with AE Bourbon shoe cream? (I know I shouldn't have opened it already biggrin.gif)

Here's the brown one for reference:

Now this is a disappointing pair of Trickers...

It's been just two weeks!

Sorry to see that, Boston; that's sad.

Ouch!

 

Are they a particularly tight fit?  Could it be a manufacturing/materials fault?

post #16388 of 16391
It was definitely the manufacturering. I'm still not convinced I didn't get a half size too large. But this would explain the heel slip on the right side. Trickers had been contacted but, since these are the made in Italy line and on final sale... Expectations are low.

Hey guys,

I wore my Chippewa workboots kayaking today: Chippewa Men's Six-Inch Chocolate Apache Steel Toe Lace-Up Boot.

 

Here are some pictures of what they looked like new:

 

 

 

Although they stayed mostly dry during the trip, they got soaked in salt water during the landing phase, with the saltiest of water going over and into the uppers and getting my boots wet inside and out. I've rinsed them as best as I can with fresh running water (cold), and they're currently drying in a cool place indoors with the insoles out. 

 

The only protectant I had on them before the trip was a stain-blocker/water repellant spray. Clearly, they're going to need some reconditioning. Before I washed them, the leather felt dryish and tough, as though it had lost some oils, and as though it would dry into a crispy/inflexible, damage-prone state. Here they are now, currently soaked through after just having been hand-washed:

(Sorry for the shit lighting, but you get the point.)

 

I'm not sure which products to apply. What's recommended? I'm considering Obenaufs, neatsfoot oil, and Preservation Solution's leather rejuvenator. 

 

Would you stuff them with paper while they dry?

 

I remember reading a thread on I think StyleForum a while ago about a guy who took what I think were Wolverine 1Ks (maybe Iron Rangers) out into salt-water all the time, fully soaking them, while looking around for rocks (he was a hobby geologist or something). He'd totally soak them in the ocean water, and always restore them back again. I forget what his regimen is and I couldn't find the thread, but the fact that he does that and succeeds in doing so again and again gives me hope that with proper care, my boots will be fine.

Welcome to the forum, te3k.  Hopefully @Crat will chime in because he is a pro at this.
