Looking after your leather boots is a must.  

The one thing with wearing leather boots outdoors a lot is if they aren’t looked after they will fail in more ways than one.

The one thing with wearing leather boots outdoors a lot is if they aren’t looked after they will fail in more ways than one.

They can rot if not dried out correctly, the stitching will become weak and they can lose their waterproofness.

If like me you are walking in a wet area then regular cleaning and dubbing will keep your boots waterproof.

The way that I look after my boots is by regularly applying boot cream / dubbing to them.

Looking after your leather boots will keep the boots, clean, waterproof and also keep them supply so they don’t crack.

There are many products out on the market but the one I have found to be completely natural and very good is product based on a extremely old recipe.  

Originally the Sami would make this dubbing and apply to there hand made Reindeer leather boots to keep them supply and waterproof.

Wilmas of Sweden have created a product based on this old recipe.  This is amazing leather conditioner.

Natural Product

It is made ​​from the choicest natural raw materials such as tar, pitch oil and natural fats. and really does penetrate into the leather and makes leather very soft, smooth and highly water repellent.
 
Wilma Kängsko-smorning gives a soft antique tint to pale natural leather.

Very easy to apply it will keep your boots at tip top condition.

The trick is to apply the dubbing on as clean boots as you can get them.  Gently rubbing the grease into the leather making sure that you are getting into all the cracks and especially the stitching.

If you can warm your boots up first so the pores of the leather open and then apply the grease this will have more of an effect.

Once done leave your boots somewhere warm so the grease penetrates the leather and then with a final buff they will be ready for whatever terrain they have to cross or pass through.
