Well, when parents kick out big bucks for boots you best believe that they are going to use at least 7.5 ounces of prevention to protect them. Before the first wearing, I sprayed Sof Sole waterproofer on the surface to repel moisture and dirt. Because the leather is thick, I gave it a second treatment. It's been 4 months since those applications and they still managed to stand up to a rainstorm.
She was worried when her shoes got wet, but when they dried, they looked like new again!
You really should invest in a $6.99 can of Sof Sole Waterproofer to protect your leather goods.
After all, "7.5 ounces of prevention is worth 7.5 pounds of cure!"
