Mink oil. Usually comes in a small cylinder near the shoe polish, sometimes with an applicator pad. It's congealed at room temp, don't be looking for something liquidy as other oils. It works marvelous. In the rain after applying it (even weeks after) water will bead up and roll off. I have some 14" tall leather boots I oiled and I can walk in a foot of water with bone dry feet. I fell in love with the stuff and haven't even thought of using a different treatment since. Also moisturizes hands well.
