Can I snow/water-proof my new boots without darkening them substantially?

I bought this
pair of Red Wing chukkas last week. Now that it's starting to snow kinda seriously where I live, I need to make them more water and snow resistant!
It seems products like Obenauf's, Sno-Seal, and mink oil might do the trick, but they can darken the leather pretty substantially
(especially the Obenauf's). I really like the color of the shoes right now and would prefer not to change it significantly...
Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!
