    Default boot oil?

    I'm getting ready to clean and oil up my whites smokejumper boots. My question would be what kind/brand of boot oil do you use?

    Thanks

    I've heard many great things about obenaufs, I outta buy some. I was looking into mink oil, but then I heard from several guys that its terrible for your boots.

    Do many retail boot stores sell obenauf's or do I have to order it online?

    thanks

    Personally I use the oil sold by Red Wing. Red Wing dealers seem to be everywhere, and once you buy the jar, refills are much cheaper. It comes with a brush so application is easy. I have worn both Nicks and Whites and it seems to do the job as both pairs are still going after 12 and 7 years respectively (with the occasional resole / rebuild).

    Obenaufs is popular, so I don't think you would go wrong there. I just find oil easier to apply than the grease style.
