Have you had your Frye (or any other) boots waterproofed? If so, did you do it yourself or pay someone to do it? What product? Thank you!


I clean and condition my boots, and I’ve sort of been hesitant on wanting to waterproof them at first because of the silicone products because with leather, once you “waterproof” them with silicone products you don’t allow the leather (an animal skin) to breathe.

I heard a super cheap version to waterproof the boots is to use Vaseline, as it is a good water barrier.

Still, I would never try this on a “fashion boot” like Frye boots as they are quite pricey.

What you COULD try is using (if you aren’t against it), mink oil which is what I discovered after a lot of research. That is a pretty good waterproofer and this is the one I use:

Just keep in mind that you have to redo the layer each winter (I do this at the end of summer so it is fresh for autumn).

Still have a burning question?
