Hi,I live in a place where the temperature is above 40°C in the summers and humidity is about 20-30%.
Hence for me conditioning even a new pair of shoes makes sense. I am sure this is not an issues in colder or more humid climate.
You never know how long these boots have been on shelves. So even for new boots/shoes i like to give them a through conditioning before wearing.
Yes, i agree its a little over kill. but i am a bit particular about such things. Y take the risk of flexing even slightly dried out leather. These are expensive boots and i wanna make sure that last as long as they can. and i wanna do everything to make that happen. besides u really cant cause the leather any harm by using this before wearing.
On the forum we have members whose native tongue isn’t English and sometimes what you may think was criticism was meant as advice. Msaint was trying to advise that other Saphir products nourish the leather better than the one you were using. I totally agree with you that sometimes it’s the right thing to do before wearing. I bought a pair from the Trickers factory sale a year or so ago and they looked really dry! Good dose of conditioner before wear! Enjoy your boots and the forum.
