Use thin amounts of sno-seal in blotchy locations, style w/ suede brush as desired.

The look may not be indenical to oil, but the wax is more permanent and similar/better look. Last thing you want to do is get the whole thing coated in wax as you'll lose all the suede texture and it will just look like a black greaseball on your feet. Remember start with very small, thin amounts, you can always add more.

Mink oil (despite the name) is nearly as waxy at normal temperatures and unless you live in a place that reaches 100+ it probably won't turn to liquid. Certainly not Toronto climate! Anyhow, just use the sno-seal, it look better if you go light like I said. I did this to my beater black suede boots. Plus, it seems you already own the sno-seal.
