Direct Link To This Post Topic: Water-proofing Old Boots
    Posted: Nov/08/2010 at 12:45pm
I've got an old pair of DC boots (5-6 years), and they're all good except they get a bit wet from time to time. I'm wondering if it's possible to apply water-proofing to the boots to extend their life.

They're made out of some kind of synthetic leather, so is there a product that can take care of this that anyone out there has used before? I assume water proofing for real leather would not be the ideal solution here.

Thanks, can't wait for the season to get going.

Sounds like a good idea, but I guess what I'm asking is what spray on product are you recommending, or where do I look for this stuff online? Thanks.

Nikwax is probably one of the most common/popular products used for this purpose.
