About this deal

In modern times, beeswax is recognized as an effective ingredient for wood finish and leather finish.

All you need to do is use a soft brush or cloth and some gentle soap to wipe off any surface debris. While this may seem a little bit of a hassle, routine care will help prolong the waterproofing and the overall longevity of your footwear. Evidence of its use is traced back as far as ancient Egypt, where beeswax figurines have been found in tombs. Whichever waterproofing method works best for your shoes, repeat it every few months to stay dry whatever the weather throws at you.

From the pictures, it's apparent that the wax 'disappears' into the leather, which I'm betting makes a good waterproof seal. A close-fitting style that is designed to hug the body and provide a streamlined appearance, which can enhance movement and performance during physical activity.

When your waxing is done let the boots cool down I generally just leave them over night which is why my waxing service takes 3 days from receipt. Ensure the surface is clean and dry by dusting it off or using a damp cloth to wipe it and then leaving it to dry. For those looking for the ultimate bulled toecap finish, beeswax still provides the best possible foundation for all commercially available black/tan shoe polishes. So, make sure you take care of your leather with this simple-to-use wax and your leather footwear will last and support you on adventures for years to come.Walking bootsneed to be as waterproof as possible to keep your feet warm and dry in a downpour half the way up a mountain.

If you have new ammo boots with the wrinkles then you should tightly pack your boots and tie them with string.Cover the whole of the upper using a clear or white candle, once completely covered, use a hairdryer to melt the wax into the shoe.

But when it comes to knowing what treatment you should use on your shoes, you should consider what material you are working with, how much you intend to wear these shoes and what are their purpose – are you planning long autumnal hikes or just need some footwear for a rainy afternoon around town? You can see it's picked up a lot of crap on the outside over the years, but when the wax melts in the double boiler the impurities settle to the bottom. With a matte finish and Moisturising balm texture, this tube of soothing lip balm glides on smoothly with a hint of Peppermint Oil which leaves your lips with a refreshing tingle.

The vaseline should create a water-resistant barrier, keeping your shoes dry in wet conditions, although reapplication may be necessary. Other than the beeswax, you only need a few materials or tools that you likely already have on hand. A lot of people speak to us about G-WAX; it’s been around so long that it’s the head of our Grangers family. When it is rubbed onto the surface of materials such as leather and then heated, some of the wax works deep into the fibers or fabric of the material. I did the entire boot once (per boot) and the toe and "exposed areas" and especially the seams that aren't covered by my pantleg an additional two times.For those of you who do not wish to use the double boiler method, you can use a microwave to melt it. In the final picture you can see that the water beads up nicely where I put the wax on, but there isn't a visible seam differentiating where I waxed and where I didn't, and the water is beading up nicely from the factory waterproofing seal.
