    Need some advice for my first pair of over $60 boots. ;p



    Hi guys. I'm a poor recent college grad so I've never really owned any really nice footwear. Usually I go around with the Stafford Ashtons or something I saw on the cheap here on dappered. Now I was at DSW yesterday and I saw these http://www.wolverine.com/AU/en-AU/Pr...n-Oxford-Brown that were marked down from $210 to $75 so I couldn't resist.


    Can I have some advice on how to take care of these? I'm thinking of wiping it down and applying some neatsfoot oil I have laying around and doing that once in a while. Also...do I need to apply the oil to both the inside and outside of the leather on the shoe?

    Just the outside. Neatsfoot will darken the leather a bit, just so you know. One thing I don't remember I'd whether neatsfoot protects and helps waterproof along with conditioning. If not, I'm a fan of mink oil for my less dressy shoes.

      Hmm...I keep reading conflicting reports about whether neatsfoot protects or not.I'm thinking about getting this: http://www.foresupplyco.com/productDetail.asp_Q_catID_E_48_A_subCatID_E_55_A_p roductID_E_703_A_strSession_E_49DE75068F0C868A3FDE F0F9BA0C5345263C88D7
