View Full Version : Calf Skin to Cardboard and back?

Oct. 22, 2009, 07:01 PM
So, my good field boots took a beating in the rain and mud at Hunter Oaks a few weeks ago. (Think similar to Fair Hill.) They are now clean. Anyone have a good plan for conditioning the leather? I have always treated my boots (due to the fact that they need a shine) differently than my tack. I also condition black tack differently than brown tack.

When I wanted to treat my tall boots right, I went and asked my shoe repair guy. I specificly told him that they are riding boots and he told me to apply lexol with my hands/fingers. Seemed to work really well and no polishing problems later. I have also heard rave reviews about Vogel boot conditioner - holy grail of boot conditioners or something, lol.

Good luck.
