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.
