Anywhoozle, I have a pair of homemade leather boots and the stitching is nowhere near as tight. Also they have no sole(Mua ha ha!), kinda like moccasins(or squidward). I always add excess jelly to the stitching, just to make sure.
The title? Why yes, I do have the comedic maturity of a 12 year old boy.
Step 1: Finger Painting
Pay special attention to the seams and stitching. Evenly finger that jelly over the parts of the boot. Do not try to do the whole boot at once. Just take your time(it's actually quite soothing...well I enjoy it anyways).
After your done fingering it, it's going to be sticky and wet-looking. I don't like leaving them like that so I wipe off the excess with a boot rag; in this case, a sock. Make sure there's no shine left and that's pretty much it.
Step 2: Now They're Ready
Of course this is only one of the many steps to Boot Foreplay. The kind and extent of foreplay required for your boots will vary from boot to boot. Remember, every boot is different and you should take the time to learn how to get your boot ready before play.
Ok the 12 year old inside of me is done now. Inside...well not like...damn it Timmy! We're done ok...ok:(
