Restoring Old Leather

I have a pair of antique oak T-back chairs with padded leather seats. The leather is old and not quite brittle, but it is cracking ever so slowly. What can I do to help restore some suppleness and health to the leather?

I've considered mink oil, but I'm just familiar with its waterproofing properties and I definitely don't want to put something on the seat that is going to end up on my backside after I sit in the chairs.
