how to protect your boots

it’s about that time to pull out your fall and winter boots, but before you wear them be sure to apply a nice coat of sno-seal to protect them from the rain and snow.  it’s the best leather waterproofing stuff you can find.  here’s what i do with mine:

  • leave them in the sun for a couple of hours to heat them (or use a hair dryer if you don’t have that kind of time).  the warm leather will melt the sno-seal and get it in the pores.
  • apply sno-seal liberally to the boot with a cut up old t-shirt or soft cloth.
  • remove all the excess wax with another piece of t-shirt or rag.
  • buff with a brush.

it’s an easy process and i’m sure you can read the instruction on the can, but i figured it was worth noting.  the most important part is heating the boot so the sno-seal can get into the fibers and pores.  we spend good money on our boots, so we might as well take care of them.
