Tom, i'm pretty sure you shouldn't use the old style "dubbing" on walking boots, it can eat at the stitching or something, though i stand to be corrected.
A bit of Googling seems to suggest something along the lines of nikwax suede and nubuck is the popular choice.

If you rub on dubbing or polish you will lose the Nubuck effect.
Yeah, Google brought up the cosmetic downside, but losing the effect doesn't affect performance, does it. ?
Or maybe it does, breathability wise.
The only pair of nubuck i've had i lathered in G-wax and didn't notice any difference, though waterproofnes was my priority.
