Description
 
Sno-Seal is the competitor of Huberd's, and is also equivalent to the "dubbing" issued by the US military during WWII. Atsko has been making this product since 1933. This is a beeswax formula that penetrates the leather and helps soften and preserve it while enhancing water repellency.
The quart can is the best bang for your buck and will treat about 10 pairs of boots.

Sno-Seal or Huberd's? Both products have their fans, and the end result is nearly identical.

Huberd's: Similar to toothpast in consistency, it works in to the leather more easily, and doesn't alter the appearance as much.

Sno-seal: A thick paste, best worked in with a toothbrush when it and the boots are warm (set them in the sun or use a hairdryer, not an oven!).

Instructions:
Sno-seal is easiest to apply when it and the boots are warm. Do NOT use an oven or flame! Set them in the sun or use a hairdryer. I use an old toothbrush to scoop it out and smear it on the boots. Work it into the outside of the shoes/ boots, into the stitch seams, and on the leather parts of the soles. After the leather no longer absorbs more, wipe them down with a rag and set aside to dry. Apply polish afterwards if desired.

How much?
A pair of boondockers took approximately 2 ounces the first time. Subsequent treatments will require less.

The US military recommended the following procedure for care of leather footwear: (Remember, this is for full time, active duty soldiers and Marines who wore their boots daily.)

1. Wash shoes or boots with soap and water, but never use hot water or soak them. Instead, use a damp cloth or sponge with white soap to remove dirt and mud. Then wipe them dry.

2. If the boots are wet (inside & out) stuff them with newspaper and allow to dry. Do not place them next to a heater, fire or in the hot sun to dry.

3. To make your shoes softer and more waterproof, apply a little dubbing every week- more often in wet weather or snow. Frequent light coatings are better than heavy coatings. Use of dubbing is more important than a fancy shine.
