I sprayed mine with a weatherproofer (can't remember which kind... the one that is okay for all leather types) and I wear them in snow/rain etc. They've held up v. well. They're hot pink and get very spotty when wet, but it goes away completely when the dry. The only prob. I've had is with the dirt. They're a little greyish around the toe... but not too bad. I think the colour just shows dirt more. My tan ones don't show dirt at all.
