Not sure why anyone would give this product anything other that a 5 star review, but I am sure they have their reasons. It will definitely darken your leather, but to what extent will depend on the leather you apply it to. I applied it to some medium brown Double H boots, and it did darken it up a bit, but very much like Obenauf's Leather Oil, the darkness does seem to get lighter as the days pass. This probably has something to do with the disbursement of the oil throughout the thickness of the leather fibers. Well that just my take on it. So one might think that this is some pretty crazy thick stuff that one might only apply to heavy duty items as the name would suggest, but not so. I tested this stuff (after using Obenauf's leather oil first) on a high end lamb's skin coat (of course I tested it on a hidden spot first). Wow, is all I can say! It will leave your smooth leathers kinda greasy at first, but let the leather rest for a few days in a hot dry environment. Then rub the leather with a clean soft cloth to remove any of the excess residue that may be lingering on the surface, and what you will have will be silk. I was so bold as to give the coat the water hose test. A duck's back ain't got nothing on this coat! Most people tremble at wearing a NICE leather coat if its going to rain, I say bring it on, and in fact, this coat will be the one I will choose to wear if it does plan to rain.

I chose this product, and their leather oil after doing quite a bit of online research as to what products are best for leather, and will not rot stitching. Too many people were swearing by Obenauf's product qualities, so I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did. I just want to know why it took me all these years to find this product, and where and the hell this product was when I was working on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier! I could have been so much more comfortable all those years had they sold this in the ship's store.

Fantastic product, exceeded expectations. Was in Japan for monsoon season, applied this to my Alden Indy's and after hiking through the city for 8 hours of rain several days in a row my boots were bone dry inside. Water beads up and rolls off.

Also, be sure to try it on wood as well! I've used it with incredible results.

I haven't used this product for long yet, but it has done wonders for my boots. I pick up trash and my boots get wet, snowed on, puddles, dog poop, mud, salt, you name it and they were wearing down pretty quick.

I used this stuff and they were restored instantly. I paid a lot for my red wings so what's another 20 bucks to extend the life and protect them right? I love the way it smells and it does make your skin feel good after applying it.

I put 2 coats on and put them on my boot dryer for a few hours to dry it out. Have no complaints and I doubt I will. I guess I'm a life customer now.

Obenauf's sells both this, which is solid and requires some heat to melt, and an oil. This is more difficult to apply than the oil, it needs heat as mentioned which means you'll want to either apply it by hand and use your body heat or you'll need a hair dryer.

The most significant difference it this leaves a noticeable film or layer on the leather. It looks fine, but doesn't necessarily feel fine. For boots that need some heavy duty protection that's great, you're not touching them constantly after all. For something like a jacket, big mistake.

The oil on the other hand goes on easily, is absorbed and leaves the leather supple. It does have a slight odor but it's not anything you shouldn't expect from genuine leather. My advice is use the heavy duty for things like boots, the oil for jackets or furniture.

Works well but do yourself a favor and use the product sparingly. A little does go a long way. Take your time and be sure you apply the product evenly. Know that it will take at least a full day to fully absorb into the leather and if it doesn't fully absorb use a lint free cloth to buff until the tackiness is eliminated. This doesn't darken your leather and gives superior moisturization to old and dry leathers.

I love that this is natural and non-toxic. More importantly, it works great. It does slightly darken the leather it is applied to, but I like the way it has toned my copper Red Wing Iron Rangers better than the original leather color. I kept reading comments about how good peoples hands felt after applying this and thought them a little over the top, but I gotta admit, my hands are baby soft.

I have little doubt that Obenauf's LP is a worthy leather preservative. However, they make no mention on the packaging that the ingredients can degrade the adhesive used to attach rubber rands around the base of boots. I have seen some slight delamination of the rand on my Lowa Baltoros since applying the LP. Make sure you check the boot manufacturer's recommendations prior to purchasing this LP.

As for the rest, it goes on very easy but leaves a fairly waxy appearance. It will significantly darken nubuck or suede. This is not ideal for improving the visual aesthetics of your boots - rather it is what it says it is - a preservative for boots that are subject to very rough conditions.

Shoe novice here, but I really enjoy how easy this stuff is. Smear it on with bare hands and watch your shoes soak it up. It will definitely darken leather but after some time they tend to lighten up a bit again. I take that as a sign to reapply. I put it on the entire boot/shoe, laces and eyelets just the same. Smells good and softens the hands too.

Great product. It will darken light leathers, however I like the darker look. It nearly completely waterproofs my wifes leather boots (as in don't use them as waders). It will also soften the leather a little, less than mink oil and saddle soap though. It does not damage synthetic threads or gore-tex like Snowseal does (my work boots contain both).

I used Obenauf's on My New Chippewa Bay Apache Harness Boots Model # 97868.
I have applied 2 Coats. The Boots did get Darker after each Coat. It realy Helps if you Heat up the Obenauf;s LP First.
I have used it on my Black Chippewa Harness Boots Before, It Really Works. Makes the Boot totally Water proof. Do not forget to put it on the Heal too. especially around the Seams and stitching.I waited one Day between each Coat. Obenauf's recommends to Waite 2 to 3 weeks. But, the first coat absorbed right in. I will Waite the 2 weeks after wearing them and apply a third Coat.
