    I don't use oil on my boots. I've always been a fan of mink oil because it is easy to apply. The key is not to over do it as it will darken the boots too much.

    I find that obenaufs leather oil every month or so works great and then lp every six months is a really great combo

    an occasional venetian shoe creaming works fine

    Do you like that boot oil? Which color Wolverine are you using it on?

    Filson boot oil. If I didn't have an endless supply it would be Obenauf's. I use it on a pair of brown 1Ks, on a pair of tan Addisons and on a pair of #8 shell cordovan 721 LTDs.

    I use Chamberlain's number 3 which is a natural cleaner, deep conditioner and water repellant.

    It's a universal product type and would work for those who don't do really rough stuff with their leather. I touched on this subject several times in the past.

    Pretty nice pics, very rich color on the leather, M. The second pic though, i would lump it with other NSFW pics.

    Thanks! I'll probably go with the Obenaufs boot oil, seems a bit easier to obtain for me ... I have LP already at home but figured I go with something lighter than the LP

    Received some of the fiebings edge sole sealer (brown) about a week ago and am very happy with it. Have not seen many people here comment on it before so figured i chime in. Got it for about 6 bucks and change after shipping. The edges of my soles were pretty beat up and the sealer returned them to a uniform color. I find the boots noticeably better looking with the cleaner sole edge

    A local cobbler recommended spraying the boots with a silicon water resistance spray, let dry overnight, then apply mink oil. Seems like overkill?
