    Most folks likely know this trick already but the video is a good demonstration of the shoe polish/waterproofing and heat technique.

    If you have experience with this technique or want to share another one you believe works well please share.

    From my experience with the old style jungle boots if you keep them good and polished often the polish alone keeps them waterproof.

    I would say it keeps them water resistant but not waterproof and definitely Not enough to keep your feet dry in the morning when the grass is covered with dew or rain from the night before. I hate wet feet.

    I guess that is todays tricks what I have used for years is mink oil you can warm it up or use it out of the can and works perfectly. and you dont need hair dryers welders or any other thing that uses a power cord.

    I use mink oil also. When we wore black boots all I was allowed to use was black shoe polish.
