Wet freakin boots!
Ok, here's my problem. I keep using different products to waterproof my leather work/riding boots......I dry em out in the boiler room and knock the dust off and apply a coat of 'waterproofing' cream (whichever kind I have found!) and as soon as my boots get wet.....so do my feet! I'm not working in a wet environment, but if I step in some deep snow or splash my boots while hosing....it's all over!
Does anyone know or can recommend a good waterproofing leather treatment?
I pay near $230 a pop for my work/riding boots....this is not cool! I used to use nik wax, but cannot find it anywhere here in Canada, nor can I find it online....
I have no idea about waterproofing them after the fact, but I did have a pair of Ariats that lasted for going on ten years. They were water proof until I wore them out so much they have holes and creases, lol.

Have you tried minks oil or bees wax? What about the waterproofing stuff camping/out door places sell for canvas and boots?
I havent had any issues with my leather Ariats once I have waxed them, and I use something called aussie wax that I found in a leather shop. Its mostly beeswax and leather conditioner. Cant really oil them after you wax them, so dry your boots, oil with neatsfoot really good, and when its dry apply the wax.
Ps you might also consider rubber boot covers that they make for riding boots.
Tandy Leather Factory - Aussie Leather Conditioner 15 oz
Aussie Conditioner by Fiebings. Tandys sells it, but Im sure any place that carries Fiebings leather products probably does to.
put plastic bags on your feet ! Ha Ha
that will keep them dry :)
I got lucky with my ariats... waterproof for 6 yrs now
My boyfriend likes to say that there is no such thing as waterproof boots since all boots have one big hole in them at the top. ;)
