I'm about to go on my first troop, and the weather is supposed to be cold and rainy. Should I be using any kind of weather protection on my TK boots?201506e5d73d44847be5e6f3bad7dab8.jpg

Tie garbage bags around your feet, works like a charm! (Don’t really do that). I don’t know of any protection for your shoes- just like any other shoe, sneaker, or boot- stay clear of puddles.

You may want to try some sort of waterproofing spray like this:  https://www.amazon.com/Shoe-Protector-Spray-Eco-Friendly-Fluoropolymers/dp/B075K6DNPC/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1542923461&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=waterproofing+spray+for+shoes&psc=1

 

Whichever one you choose make sure that it has a color safe property.

I did it almost 2 years ago. Didn't work?!! 

Not if you are an approved Stormtrooper, your info says 501st member, maybe it got missed but just make a new request and that sorts it:salute:

Because I'm ESB, the CRL specified mine to be "lightly weathered," so I didn't try to protect them too much.  (Specified at the time I was approved, it's since been updated).  I also think, as do many others, that a light weathering and not shockingly white looks best regardless of ANH/ESB/ROTJ.  

 

I would recommend basic care and maintenance- wipe off any obvious mud or dirt, get anything out of the treads, that kind of stuff.  You don't have to polish them, but give them a wipe down and a chance to dry if they've gotten wet.  The boot will last longer that way, but you will still have the look of trooped in but not beat up boots.

Just chiming in that this is no longer the case in current CRL:salute: I totally agree on that the boots look much better with "wear and tear" though:duim:

Yeah I thought of that about five minutes after I posted, then got distracted.  Ha!
