Re: [backpackgeartesters] Re: Lowa Renegade Test
- It said to apply wax "regularly", but not "required initially".
It did not say how often "regularly" is. It did say to apply after getting the boots wet.
Since it said "not required initially", I would assume it's okay to apply initially.
I would like to apply initially, because the leather is clean, optimum time to do so.
The laces are long enough that they tend to catch on something and become untied. No big deal though, I'll just leave them as is.

Did it say how long to wait or what to watch for? If not and you want to be sure and keep them in good shape, wear them a couple of outings and then apply the wax. Unless the laces are so long as to be dangerous, then don't cut them. Or do like I did....pull real hard on them and see if you can get them to break at the appropriate lenght...JK. But I did break a lace on a boot I'm testing just recently
PS Im not official but the above are pretty standard practice. sans trying to break the lace.
