    Hey guys, I have an update from Jim Winjum at Kenetrek. After I posted yesterday, I contacted him about treating the leather on these boots when they are new out of the box. He said some guys do and some guys don't but he suggested to treat them to enhance water repellency, increase their lifespan and as a positive bonus, the leather squeak will quiet down as well. Just wanted to give you that tidbit.

    Okay, so I used Kenetrek's Boot Wax on my Mountain Extreme's last night and it took away all the noise problems I was having. That leather is thirsty on the new boots so be sure to use an ample amount or do two coats. I am putting the second coat on this evening. Can't wait to get some hunting miles on these boots! Come on September!

    I've had really good luck with neetsfoot and linseed oil for breaking in boots then coating them with Snoseal for wet weather hunting!

    It's been nearly 2 months, how are you liking your boots Dan? I sent mine back 5 weeks ago to get them rebuilt, they should be back in within a week I hope. I really miss not having them.
