  • 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.
