Sorry, I double checked and my MMM Gats are actually a 42.
Those brigs are vegetable tanned cowhide and extremely susceptible to staining or discoloration. No way you can preserve color, they will darken over time. Best thing to do is wear them as long as possible. As you get dark spots and discoloration go all out and use saphir renovateur and cover them to make the discoloration uniform (any conditioner on these will darken the whole boot). How do I know this? I owned the boots- didn't like how easily the leather marked and discolored itself.
Thanks for the info. Since darkening is inevitable, any advice on what I could use for water proofing the boots - maybe Invulner? I'll look into the Renovateur for conditioning.
Hi All. Recently bought a pair of the FBT Elk. Really love them! Just wondering how they hold up in the rain? Don't plan to get them drenched, but if I get caught out in the rain will they be ok? Or should I spray the leather with some water repellent? I'd rather not apply anything unless I need to. Thanks!
