I was bored last night and decided to take some before/after pictures from applying mink oil. I worked in layer on each boot, then popped them in a warm oven as it cooled down to speed up absorbing the oil.
This is a new pair of CDBs in beeswax that I got from amazon. Wore them once before using the mink oil.
Left shoe has mink oil, right shoe is clean
Both shoes have mink oil, the leather was nice and soft at this point
Out of the oven
The leather got a few shades darker after the oven but I'm hoping it will brighten with some more wear.
