L.L. Bean Boots

I've owned my Maine Hunting Shoes for 6 months. Given a choice, the boots woGuld choose a different owner. They have been to hell and back. They've tromped down muddy potato field rows, been ratcheted into snowshoes, submerged multiple times in icy rivers (holding up okay, even above the neck, when tied tight), kept my feet dry on multiple ice fishing trips, experienced daily use, and been thrown about in the back of my truck and car. 

They began showing age a couple months ago with water marks and light colored wear lines on the leather. Act it or not, I care what they look like, and purchased some L.L. Bean Boot Guard for $6. Check out the before and after. I'm impressed. Let me know what you think and if you've used this wax before.

Where can you find LL Bean "Boot Guard." I can't seem to find it anywhere on the internet.

I would send a tweet to @LLBeanPR, but I assume that you are correct and it's only available at retail.
Tell Laurie that Rhon sent you.

I got some direct from the flagship store in Freeport. Any advice on applying it?

Use your fingers to rub it in not a cloth. Use a liberal amount. Let set 10 minutes and then wipe excess off. Let me know how it turns out!
