Rubber boot care?
« on: Dec 19, 2017, 06:17 AM »
I just got a pair of Mickey Mouse boots manufactured in 1986. They are in good shape, and without any cracks. How do I keep the rubber in good condition? Armor All?

I'm no expert on rubber boots, don't own any. But Armor All is great for protecting anything rubber/vinyl against drying/cracking and UV damage. I've also used something 2001 I think. Very similar. There are other product and there may be better. I can only speak to my experience.

I wouldn't put it on the soles unless you want to spend a lot of time picking yourself up off the ice. Pretty slippery stuff.
