Mr. Huberd himself founded Huberd's Shoe Grease Company in McMinnville Oregon, in 1921. He created a beeswax shoe grease formula that was perfect for loggers, that kept their boots dry and in excellent condition during Great Northwest winters. Improvements to the product line in 1929 included copyrights, patents, and the creation of Shoe Oil and Neatsfoot Leather Dressing formulas. Huberd's products were formulated using no animal fats that could turn rancid, and no solvents or additives that could damage leather. The products soon had a very loyal following. The formulas have survived the test of time and are the preferred products for keeping your leather waterproofed, conditioned, and looking like new.
