Oil used for boots Answered

I've had my pair of Danner boots for 5 years, going on six. I do everything in them, hiking, welding, motorcycle riding,  only taking them off to go to sleep, so they get alot of abuse. I use Mink oil on mine, heating them up a little from the inside then applying the oil. Of course I clean them off first with a damp rag and a little bit of soap if needed. I've had my Danners re-soled once so far and had a few seams re-sewn. Who knows how long they'll last. They have a little crack where they get toe creased but other than that they're great.

I use Obenauf's. It works great, and I really like how you can buff it up to be really shiny. You can get some at the link for a pretty good price.
