Hey, I've got a pair of leather boots, and when I first got them I treated them with Revivex Leather Gel Water Repellant. I got a little tear into the leather, and I want to know how to fix it. Do I just redo the waterproofing?

Your local cobbler should be able to fix a tear in a boot. reapply water proofing after the repair.

I guess I was really wondering if anyone here had some suggestions on how to go about fixing it myself.

Well, if your good at sewing you can get it as close and tight as you can with seam stichting then seal it with a seam sealer inside and out? Then reapply waterproofing. I vote a cobbler though
