I use the R.M. Williams Suede Protector but any equiv. product will do fine. Most people without access to RM products easily use Saphir, and I would too if not for living close to RM. You can wear them without a protector but the main reason for the protector is as a spray sealant to make them water resistant. When correctly applied, water will bead off them. Obviously don't go around stepping in ankle height water as it's not a miracle product but it does protect against light rain and light splashes. I'm not sure it's super useful beyond that, they'll still get dirty and need occasional brushing over time.

Found y'all on google;

anyone got any tips on chinchilla care?

They look excellent, is that Cognac? Looks darker than the sales pics for Cognac but in a good way, probably just the lighting used for the website. What Crafty said, just natural polish, no conditioner or anything.

I really wish they made a Comfort Chinchilla, I think it's absolutely crazy they don't. I'd own at least two pairs by now with a comfort inner.

If you check the website it looks like the chinchilla comes with comfort soles now..

My significant other actually conditioned my chinchillas (albeit very well) when i first got them but 1.5 years on they've aged well.

Getting them relasted with rubber soles soon and going to keep the leather soles as a memento $220 aud

When I talked to the staff at the flag store (Melbourne central) said the chinchillas are seasonal and only with leather soles.

They were, if you look at the website (UK one anyway) it has a picture on rubber but states leather...🤯

I’d go Redback as an alternate, I’ve a pair of them for gardening:walks etc and bloody comfortable. Not recraftable but damn near indestructible!

Redback and Rossi are both great work boots, though they don’t always carry wide sizes like RMW. Chunky and ugly but perfect for the garden or bush.

RMW Gardeners have a nice sole for urban walks and the leather can take some abuse. My only complaint is the pull-up brown leather looks very drab - otherwise it would be a perfect boot for casual wear and travel (love going through airport security with Chelsea boots).

I’ve got Gardeners too but struggle to use them as I intended as the Redback I’m not bothered how they look at the end! 😆
