Care and maintenance of plastic boots

Postby Lars » Wed Jan 10, 2018 11:05 am

A Fischer representative told me that he had good luck using a product called Neutral.

This looks like a leather boot cream from RedWing.

What would you recommend for treating and maintaining plastic boots with leather like the Fischer BCX6?

There's not much you can do about the plastic parts... They will eventually break up at some point... ;)

Not sure how many real leather parts are actually on the BCX6, but I guess any kind of treatment is better than nothing... Not sure the solvent-based RedWing cream is the best for outdoor use though... Maybe some kind of natural oil or water-based cream would be better...? Paging LilCliffy... 8-)
