Winterizing your boots or shoes

Ordered me some new shoes yesterday. But thought there still may be life in these so I took them out to my parents and my Dad has this boot stuff you put on with a toothbrush. Boy they look sort of brand new. Brought the color back and everything. Plus makes them waterproof. Tried to cancel my order from Amazon for my other ones, but guess I was to late. Oh well I will have a new pair waiting I guess. Think I will still wear these for awhile now. So in the future just buy some boot grease and extended out your shoes.

How many of you were like me, a pair of boots or shoes start to look worn out, or the leather gets dark from the rain or snow so you just go and buy a new pair. But you can really bring a pair of shoes or boots back to life with some leather conditioner. My Dad has always done his boots for as long as I can remember. We were at the store yesterday and I picked up some:



You basically want your shoes or boots somewhat warm. Then get an old toothbrush and rub it in. I even did my shoes when I got done. You can really bring life into your shoes just by doing this every so often.
