How do you take care of beeswax dbs (or leather in general I guess) in the long run? Every pic posted in this thread looks like they are almost new, except for some guy who posted some nice heavily worn taupe suede a while back. I have probably a solid 250 miles worth of wear on my beeswax now. They seem to continuously improve with time, but the leather is beginning to look dry.
I know nothing about shoe care, so whats the best way to handle these? Beeswax? Leather conditioner? Shoe polish? Mink oil? Saddle soap? Nothing at all?
There are definitely pictures in this thread where people have hit them with some Obenauf's but that seems like it takes them too far. I have thought about sno-seal (which is mainly beeswax) but my boots that I have sno-sealed are very different than the DBs...
Maybe a dry beeswax put on very thin and then buffed hard (my DBs don't really feel waxy but my sno-sealed boots do)
