Update: to say it was pouring in NYC today would be an understatement. These held up amazingly well. I used Burgol Piz on these and the results are amazing. I purposefully stepped in puddles today, some 3 inches or so deep, and watched the water roll off. Rain drops formed little beads on the surface of the boot, that I was able to literally kick off. The ridgeway sole worked extremely well too, no slipping even with a wet sole. I highly recommend Burgol Piz, and have found a new appreciation for grain boots. Now to try some CXL type leather...

 

tl;dr 

 

Burgol Piz is almost magic. Grain boots repel water extremely well. Go to rainy day and winter boot.

Is it really called Bugol Piz?

For the charity auction, if we want to get trial shoes and stuff like that we can pay for that separately correct?

Hey thanks for that review, you've convinced me to get it. I have that pair and the carmina cxl boots. And I think I'll use Burgol Piz on both. It rains like hell here in December.

@JLnoir

Nice carminas! Can you take a pic with better lighting? Preferably sunlit?

@Watchman1

That is mahogany shell, correct? I'm surprised it's not closer in shade to Etrsuco. The depth on that color is nuts.

@Leaves

What StC suede colors are close to Polo/Fox suede? Or maybe Vass red-brown?

Btw, my new job apparently has an office about 2 streets down from your shop :P

Is there any particularly method for applying the Burgol Piz?

I'm sure you'll like it, it's a helluva product.

The only change I make is getting the rag damp when shining, as opposed to just a drop or two of water with Saphir for example. It's just wax, despite Skoak calling it cream. If it is cream, it's certainly the waxiest hardest cream I've ever used.

Yes Sir, mahogany shell cordovan.

 

And yes, they are nuts.  I'm doing my best to try and convince myself I don't need another pair in a different style but same shade...

 

So far its not working out too well...

Yes, it is Burgol's name for it :)

The best recommendation is to apply it as a normal wax (shoe polish). It is not a product for high shine but perfect for tough conditions to keep rain and snow away from affecting the upper leather.

Piz means mountain top in Schweizerdeutsch I believe. @andrel42

So freely translated it's mountaineering cream or mountain wax.
