A quick note on the Hunter boots--I got them at Nordstrom Rack for much less than original price. They are the Champery boots, which boast a sleek wedge atop a comfy platform. They had a patchy film of white stuff on them which I was slightly sad about. Luckily, the omnipotence of the internet intervened and I learned about rubber blooming. Apparently, rubber is a sentient being, reacting to harsh external climes by extruding its waxy component (bloom) to the surface in an attempt to protect itself. As creepy as it is to don a living breathing thing on my legs, I pushed onwards, determined to get rid of the bloom. A helpful thread on the purse forum discusses the utility of using oil vs. some special product costing $$ to polish the boots. Therefore, oil it was! Incidentally this oil was leftover from making sufganiyot. Now my boots are shiny and bloom-free. Another Chanukah miracle!
