About this product

AltBerg Leder-Gris Original is a mixture of 70% wax and 30% oil. It has been developed for everyday use in average UK conditions. The wax provides waterproofing, as it dries  it remains on or just below the surface. The oil goes deeper into the leather, and helps to maintain the leathers suppleness by replacing leather oils lost during the drying out process. If leather oils are not replaced, then boots will be more likely to show signs of flex cracking earlier. Note - Use of Leder-Gris may darken the colour of the leather. 

Keeping boots in good, supple condition is essential to prolong the life of the boot and can, on certain models, mean that the boot can be resoled rather than having to be replaced. If the upper is maintained in good enough condition then the sole unit can potentially be replaced.

Additional Info

  • Brush in Leder-Gris when the boots are almost dry
  • Use the brush to work, and drive the wax oil into the leather
  • Always treat with Leder-Gris before storage
  • If leather shows signs of hardening, or after use in extreme wet conditions, use Leder Gris Extreme as a one-off treatment

Altberg only recommends Leder-Gris

All leather will eventually show signs of cracking where the boot flexes. Treatment with Leder-Gris will slow down the rate at which this cracking will occur.

Drying boots too quickly will harden the leather and accelerate flex cracking - rapid drying may also shrink the boot and alter the fitting. 

Always let boots dry naturally in a cool place.
