      Hello, please let me know how you water proof shoes, I'm using normal polish wich doesn't keep all the water out, what oil do you use?

      Where did you get info about making your own shoes?

      I'd like to know where you go the soles from.


      Thanks

        Hello t8769,

        For some reason I missed this. Anyway, better late than never, and it may help for others browsing. In order to waterproof, I used a combination of neatsfoot oil and Sno-Seal brand Bee's Wax. There were two layers of 8 oz cowhide for the entire shoe including the soles. These were waterproof tested by walking through a foot deep stream for about 30 minutes.

        My socks were dry afterward except for around the shoelaces where they were damp in some parts on top, but not too bad. So it can be done. One warning though is that well oiled soles are slippery on smooth cement. So if this is for someone who does not have an acute sense of balance, or is fragile, then one would want to ensure better traction somehow.
