Restoring Snakeskin Boots?

So, while cleaning out some of my mom's old things I found a super cool looking pair of Dan Post snakeskin boots..They are blue leather with different color stitching, and then the bottom is multicolored snakeskin.. They are a little rough looking, mostly just dirty, but the snakeskin is getting a little flakey? What can I do to fix the boots up? They are too cool looking to just throw away, I'd love to be able to clean them up and wear them with dresses or something.. Will post pictures soon! Cleaning the leather now..

Alright, so here is a picture of the boots after a little TLC..Any ideas as to what else I could do to bring them back to life?

It takes about a week for moisture or conditioner to work it's way into the leather. That is when you need to reassess and maybe repeat what you have done. That style of boot is still the best for those with lower back pain as they do make a person "walk tall". It's the height of the heel and the way it is undercut that offers the benefits.
