I guess the topic would apply to any WWI or WWII era leather boots. I just purchased a pair of WWII jump boots from a fellow member here. The condition is great, given 74 years old period.
What should I do to preserve them? I mean besides putting them in an A/C controlled and enclosed environment. Should I oil them? Would that depreciation its historical value? If I need to oil them, what type of oil to use?
