+1 for 2 pair so they dry out some on their day off.

2 pair of White Smoke Jumpers made for my feet in 1983. I went to the factory. Wore them every day for many years all kinds of jobs from road tester to back country surveyor. Even wore them to train on my road bicycle with toe clips. Still nice boots.

After break in I sealed the stitching then treated them with SnoSeal on a warm day. Saddle soap every year or as required, a little mink oil every other year, mostly just SnoSeal. Never dried them by the fire. Always wore a thin inner wicking sock and a heavy outer pair of cushion or warmth. Never a blister with them.
