    Before you buy "mink oil" look it up on Wikipedia. I bought Sof Sole and Meltonian "mink oil." The Meltonian "mink oil" paste is not as soft as the Sof Sole "mink oil." Neither product tells you the percentage of the ingredients in them. However the Meltonian was absorbed into both hard leather and soft leather boots in one 90 degree day. I used a toothbrush to apply it in the crevices of my dry boots. The tongue of my old flight boots was softened nicely by it. One caution from my local shoe repair store person who made some calls for me. She told me not to use any mink oil on my 40 year old goat skin flight jacket. When you lean back on something a jacket with mink oil will leave an oily residue, and I can believe that from the way the boots handle. Instead she (and her source) recommended Urad cream. I had put a coat of the Sof Sole on my flight jacket before getting the advice, and it appears that the Sof Sole has been completely absorbed. I'll update this after applying the Urad. A good article on conditioning leather jackets is at http://www.urad.com/Support/FAQ_JacketsCare.cfm.

    I know this is a matter of expectations, but I wasn't expecting such a dramatic change in color. This would be great for black or dark brown. Do not use this if you want to keep a lighter color leather.

    <edit>
    After owning my boots for a few months during Florida's wet season, I would like to bump up my rating. This stuff does work really well as a waterproofer. If my boots get a little scuffed, I just throw on a dab of mink oil and I'm good to go. While initially I didn't like the darkening of the color, I really like it now.

    Waterproofs and softens leather well. Makes it a lot easier to wash off salt and sand during the winter, and keeps my feet dry (and therefore warm). Darkens the leather up a bit, but I actually like it.
    This would be five stars, but the Amazon description says it's 5oz, and the picture says 2.5oz. If it were 5 oz, it'd be a good deal. At 2.5, it's overpriced. Stupid me didn't check it before I opened it up and started using it, so I'll be keeping it. But when it runs out (which shouldn't take long, at 2.5 oz), I'll be buying a different product.

    Meltonian Mink Oil Paste

    I read online that they use fat from minks which are a really cute looking furry cat things, but i also eat meat with little to no guilt. Getting on a moral high horse about leather cream would be hypocritical of me but i still feel weird about rubbing a cute animals fat on my boots.
    Anyways my boots were a light tan color and after rubbing this paste on it my boots turned into a nice creamy dark brown, its even gave my boots a shiny polished look. This oil also gives a light weather resistance to your boots.

    This is great for polishing and waterproofing your leather, I just used it on my unfinished leather boots.
    The only drawback is you need to heat it before you can apply it to a sponge or cloth. Something as simple as a heatgun will do the job. You can use the oven-method that was mentioned below, that may be more ideal to some if not most. But for those that are as impatient as me, then a heatgun is your new (if its not already) bestfriend.
    I'll definitely be buying this again in the future.

    Mink oil rehydrates like nothing else. You are probably better off buying pure mink oil to hydrate and once that is accomplished after a few days of soaking applications then apply something like this if your going cheap and domestic or if you want to spring for the high end get Saphir Medialle d'Or products off Valmour. Otherwise this will do if you need something cheap and fast. Best bang for buck shoe restoration with mink oil.

    I applied it to some sperries and bike to school everyday about 6 miles in them. The oil darkened the leather just a touch, but not enough to make a difference- I guess that is expected when applying to dry worn out leather. Had it on the shoes for about a month now and still looks good. I would highly recommend.

    I put these on some Timberland boots and it definitely darkened the leather a little. But its not too bad. The mink oil definitely helps the leather and makes sure that its water proof and stays soft for years to come. A little bit also goes a long way, this jar should easily last me a few year.
