I use leather rigger boots while out shooting. They are relatively cheap and hardwearing and I find them comfortable. However I do find that they can let dampness seap in and leave you with cold damp socks after a time - Not nice of comfortable during the winter months.
With this in mind I have been reading up on waterproofing and conditioning leather boots. Many places/people say that Neatsfoot Oil is a very good and cheap way of conditioning and waterproofing the leather.
Can any of you guys who use Netasfoot Oil on your boots give me any pointers on the best way and how often to apply Netasfoot Oil to boots to condition and waterproof the leather, and of course any possible drawbacks of using Neatsfoot Oil?
Edit: If members feel that Neatsfoot Oil is not the best thing to use for conditioning and waterproofing leather boots can you tell me why and what alternatives you would suggest please?
