Topic - Why do I bother waterproofing my boots?!

Matt Bill Platypus - on 30 Dec 2012
So, every time I go on a walk and my boots get dirty and wet I dutifully clean them and then apply proofing 'stuff' to the wet leather (as directed in the instructions). Then the next time I go out my feet get soaking wet and I do the same thing again when returning from my walk. Well, to be honest, why am I bothering with reproofing, as it seems it makes no difference?

The latest stuff I have used in Nikwax Waterproofing Wax For Leather. To be honest it didn't seem to work at all. I hardly walked through any puddles, but my feet were absolutely soaked. Admitedly it was raining quite a bit, but it still seems ridiculous. I think I would do just as well to not spend the money on the 'stuff' and to just clean them and dry them.

What are peoples thoughts? Am i doing something wrong? Or is this just to be expected?
