Leather boots? Get Sno-Seal.
on November 13, 2012
I recently purchased some Danner boots on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Danner-Mens-Shibuya-Boot-Black/dp/B007SPHM1U). One walk in the grass told me what needed to happen: time to "waterproof" my boots.
Sno-Seal is the go-to product for this type thing and after using it I can tell why... it just works well. Beeswax "waterproofing" makes boots water resistant but still breathable and flexible. This 7-oz can is plenty for the lifetime of a boot (I probably will seal these twice during the wet season).
Sno-Seal will not make a boot water impenetrable, but you don't want that with leather. Beeswax keeps water out really well, but still allows the leather to breathe. As long as you aren't standing in a puddle for too long you're gonna stay dry.
As other reviewers note, this will make your boots a shade darker. Spot test it if you are worried.
