    do any of you ever re-oil oiled soles like the double waterlocks from alden?

    other websites mention oiling ordinary leather soles with neatsfoot or generic mink oil to increase longevity--do any of you do this? seems like it could be a good idea for waterpoofing...

    TIA!

    yes - I condition the soles periodically - perhaps twice a year.

    Man dubbin is expensive...or maybe I clicked on the wrong webpage.
