How to care for the leather upper on Sorel Boots?

I inherited a pair of Sorel Boots (the old kind, from when they were still made in Canada!). The leather upper is dry and I would like to clean/condition them before wearing them out in the snow. Hoping someone can advise on what they need right now in terms of care and then going forward. Photo 1. Photo 2.

Tall Leather Frye Boots: Do I need boot socks?

Tall leather Frye boots: do I need tall boot socks with them? I'm thinking about getting a pair of Frye boots, and for some reason, the tallest boots are around $100 bucks cheaper than the lower rise boots at my local shoe store. Can I wear regular ankle length socks with the taller boots without chaffing on the back of my calf, or do I need full length boot socks to be comfy? [more inside]
