What is the best way to care for my favorite leather boots?

I bought a pair of knee-high black leather Etienne Aigner boots last year (Costa
, to be exact.) I LOVE them - they're that magical combination of comfort, style and fit that can be elusive for those of us with narrow feet.
Because I love them so much, I want these boots to last as long as possible. What is the best way to take care of them? I currently store them upright with boot inserts when I'm not wearing them to keep their shape. I haven't treated them with anything (polish, wax, etc.) since I bought them last year and I wear them fairly often. They seem naturally waterproof, but I'm not sure if I need treat them with something to keep them that way. I normally buy cheap shoes so I have no experience with leather care. Any tips you could give me would be appreciated!
