A local boutique that I have bought a great many leather purses & boots sold this product & it's the only protector for my loved leather items I will trust since I know it works well . I noticed they have either gone out of business r moved so that's why looking on line for the product. I try to stock up on the spray for my large collection of leather goods,plus I'm always buying boots. First time purchasing the sales person said may darken the leather . For me it didn't change the shade on any of my gray r tan items. It has a strong smell when spraying & till your leather item is compleatly dry. So I recommend waiting a couple days after spraying before wearing r using item. Spray outdoors I highly recommend, once sprayed if nice outdoors I leave sit out to dry but bring in befor any dampness begins to settle in the air in early evening . Drying indoors I recommend in a room not being used as the odor is a little unbearable.also let dry several hours or overnight then spray another coat. I first stuff paper towels inside my boots at the opening Just cause I want to keep it from spraying inside B sure to keep moving your spray strokes to prevent drip marks.
Product works well protecting from all weather conditions . B sure to reapply after cleaning / conditioning your item . I have even sprayed 3 coats on item I want to use daily . Ur leather still breaths. Highly recommend this product.
