Me too, and use a hairdryer carefully to melt the wax and drive it into the leather by your chosen method.

After every use before putting them away. best kept away from direct heat too such as next to a radiator. I've several pairs now, brilliant boots....Oh and definitely do NOT use a hairdryer LoL! That's not very kind on the leather. Ledergris will soak in to damp or scuffed leather very effectively by applying a generous coat, leaving overnight, then give a gentle buff next morning.

To clarify, hairdryer to warm the wax to melt it a little. (Other heat sources are available )

LoL....Ledergris doesn't need melting. Its base makes it easy to apply even in colder weather. It's not like a stick of beeswax! (more like ordinary shoe polish in consistency).

I use the Ledergris and Ledergris Extreme on all my boots and leather footwear. Chiruca, Chevalier (old model) , .... very good product. I use it without heating.
