Use traditional dubbin.
My EpicMilitaria roughouts arrived today. They fit well, I'll probably put in an extra sole for better support, but I do that with all my shoes. The quality seems great, the color looks nice - not sure if I would like to darken it by making it impermeable.
Compared to the service boots the roughouts are much lighter, softer and easier to wear, they're not so stiff and high. I'm glad I went for them! Thanks for all the advice.
Alternatively, I have some shoe-care sprays that make them water-proof. Would you recommend using it on these?
Greg, you can definitely use a waterproofing spray and it will work okay on these. The spray will not darken them like a dubbin or sno-seal will though.
Hopefully, they have a quick break-in time and you can start putting some serious miles on them soon.
You’ll grow to like them a lot and in time they will be your everyday casual boots
