Pictures if the before and after would be awesome.
which oil is everyone using on their wolverines?
I don't use any oil on my CXL Alden Indys
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
I'm using Filson boot oil.
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?
