Work Boots are a significant investment for firefighters, lineman, loggers, farmers, construction, plant workers and outdoor enthusiasts who work and play in extreme environments. Obenauf’s Heavy Duty LP and Leather Oil help preserve that investment.

Before you choose the product, find out what kind of leather tanning and finishing process was used on your boots. Oil-tanned leather should be treated with oil based products. Some Chrome-tanned leather boots should have wax based product applied or sprayed with silicone waterproofing. Contact the boot manufacturer if necessary.

Obenauf’s products protect your boots from hazardous chemicals, caustic fire retardants, manure acid, water, mud, petroleum and heat. Learn how to care for firefighter boots here.

Our military in Iraq and Afghanistan have given positive feedback on the benefits of Obenauf’s on their boots in extremely adverse conditions of the desert.
