I have a pair of nice knee length boots- that are super comfy and attractive. I get lots of complements on them.
They are actually NOT leather, although they look like leather.
I have worn them a lot, especially lately with the snow and stuff.
I guess it's from the salt, but they are looking kind of dull.
What can I use to get them looking nice again?
I thought about shoe polish- but then I thought I would ask here for your collective wisdom.

If it's a smooth surface, try vaseline...rub on, wipe off. If it's supposed to looked brushed or like suede...don't do that! Try brushing those sort of surfaces.

Yay!!!! Tried it- just put tiny bit of vaseline on a paper towel and rubbed into the boot. It looked good so I went with it (still using only a little bit) and my boots look nice now and have that subtle sheen instead of the dull salty look. Thank you cb at sea!
