They look like newbuck and swade boots ,there are several means but the best way to maintain breethability would be to use a nickwax based clener /proofer they make one specifically for the materials mentiond this will also help reduce the staning on them but not completley as the materials are quite porous.
conditioner for leathers is usuall for the smooth type not newbuck/swade
DO not use wax/conditioner as this will negate the benefits of the gore membrain!!
hope this helps and happy treckkin

Other than brushing and some brushing and a bit of Camp Dry, I never put anything on my newbuck Danners. I've owned four pairs of various Danner boots and the higher end ones, like what you have, have always been fantastic. In fact, they've been the best boots that I've ever owned. I finally retired a pair just a couple of weeks ago after much use over the period of about 8 years. As far as the price goes, I think you did great! Great grab!
Thank you Patriot, i decided to let them be and just use a boot brush whenever required.
I believe Danner makes their out products for cleaning boots. They are available on there website just my two cents.
