What's the best stuff to treat a new leather hiking boot with after a walk and a wash?
That stuff @Multi_Grooves is raving about? That nice looking stuff @Muppetteer is selling, or something else? I would have used dubbin back in the day... ta.
I'll second Nikwax. The Saphir stuff is amazing if you want supple leather and a shine, but probably totally overkill. Its also probably the wrong colour for you.
But unless you've really worn the boots for a week of hiking through treacherous conditions and seriously scuffed them, there shouldn't be much they'd need.
For condition or waterproofing?
For condition if they're decent leather and new probably nothing I'd have thought. Maybe a bit of clear polish? If you use saddle soap to clean then it usually has some oils and stuff in that.
For waterproofing nikwax with your finger.
