    I ordered some of the now "in"famous Huberds and tried it on some RW boots this weekend. It darkened them significantly. Here is a pic of my White's false tongue with half treated (once) half not

    Just thought the pic might be informative for those like me with little treatment experience.

    After nearly two weeks of wear, my boots have taken quite a beating but have held up well, as expected.
    I can't say the same for my feet though, some serious blisters but I assume that's normal.

    Those boots are two weeks old!? Well I bet your blisters come from the bashing around and not the boot fit. No matter the environment the boots should fit well and not cause any blisters. Do alternate your boots every other day too. You do seem to get your boots to work! Enjoy them in good health and you certainly seem productive. Best wishes for your success. Seems some conditioning weekly and brushing daily would go a long way to prolonging their life. Enjoy!

    I think people buy these boots and intentionally go around kicking things and walking roughly through stones and whatnot to get a "patina'd" look.
