I'm planning to wear leather boots on my next camino and have been doing quite a bit of research and came across an interesting piece of info that relates to all boots-especially gore tex pnes. The advise was to immerse the boots in water for 15 minutes then rinse in clean water. The rationale was that this will remove accumulated sweat salts that can clog the gore tex membrane thereby reducing efficiency. Sounds reasonable.
