I use sno-seal as well.  If your friend didn't tell you, it will darken the leather if that matters.

Leather is dark brown, but I don't care about looks.  Function first.

I've used silicone spray lube, works in a pinch. Sad thing is after that you can't use anything else on those shoes/boots.
Sure it'll fit........ Just needs a little brute finesse.

I use PItch-blend. It's a mix of pine pitch, mink oil, and beeswax. You have to form the habit of using it but it stinks less than sno-seal.
