I bought my first pair of “real” boots the other day. A pair of Schnee’s Beartooth II’s. Only seconds out of the box I realized what I had been missing out on all my life. Incredible to say the least. I’m sure other companies make equally impressive boots but I wouldn’t know any better because like I said, these are the first pair of quality boots I’ve owned and I have nothing to compare them against. All that aside, I’m seeking some advice on how to care for them. If anybody has some specific advice on Schnee’s, that would be great, but open to general advice as well. I saw that Schnee’s carries a few products (Nikwax, leather conditioner, and pitch blend leather oil). Any advice on those or other products? Can/should I just wear my boots out on hikes straight out of the box or should I treat/condition them first? Appreciate any input.
