“I have entered some what into the leather boot conditioning/water proofing "controversy" and am interested if you guys could gain some information from the manufacturer on recommendations for the Anfibio leather that is used. It states that it is an oil tanned leather, but I have read other places that it incorporates Silicone. Thanks.”
I use "Montana Pitch Blend" and it works very well. Redwing boot conditioner (same stuff) is available at your local redwing store if you have one. Use only natural leather conditioners and avoid those with silicone or petroleum in them and your shoes will last longer. Most important thing with these type boots is to remember to clean them after use. The residual dirt is what really breaks the shoes down fast. Obenaufs is another good choice. I dont recommend NikWax or SnoSeal for these boots, because of the type of leather.
