"I used Montana Gold Acrylic Spray Paint. And after researching I decided to take the top coat off of the leather with finger nail polish remover so the paint would set into the leather a little better. Acetone was actually recommended but I'm lazy like that so I went with what I had on hand. I tested the polish remover on the inner zipper area first to make sure there would be no major color shift in the leather. So far the paint seems pretty solid. No cracks or flaking at all. I washed the boots (as recommended by Commander) with soap and water to try to remove some of the remaining sticky residue and when that didn't work I rubbed them down with Olive Oil...totally worked! The paint showed no signs of rubbing off or flaking with either of these treatments. "
