As the title says, how do I effectively waterproof my shoes and boots so that it lasts, most I can ever get with offf the shelf polish and liquid brush-on stuff is a few days - it rains a lot where I am near Boscome.

Hi cybernut!  You can get spray-on and brush-on wax in most high street hardware stores.  Hope that helps.

I use the same stuff they coat some cookware with.  Teflon!

Yes, Teflon!  I think that's available as brush-on and spray-on.

Teflon's OK but might give all your shoes and boots etc a dark grey colour? :P   Wax sounds better to me imho.

This would be my concern as well.  My 'Yes, Teflon!' was deliberate sarchasm at A.Jenery's suggestion  :P , although I suppose Teflom may come in different shades of grey.  Generally I'd say brush-on or spray-on wax.
