Seal your boots before the snow falls this year!
I went the Beeswax route. It worked great. Take your time to seal it up nice. Cut your chamois strips first; a few 2“x2” pieces are fine. Set up your waxing station with your Atsko beeswax, strips, boots, and heat source. I used a hair dryer. Wish that I had done this with every pair of boots that I’d ever owned!
Reminds me, ought to do this for my sandals, too.
