5.0 out of 5 stars Best sandals EVER!!!, June 26, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rainbow Sandals Men's Double Layer Leather Sandal (Apparel)
My second pair!!! My first pair lasted about 7 years and I wore them A LOT. I wear these a lot also and I absolutely love them. Hands down the best.

ADVISE: When you get them, soak them in warm water and then wear them around until they dry out. Do this at least 3-4 times to break them in. If you do this they will be your best friend.

I know you aren't supposed to use any products on them (cause they say so) but I used a quality glycerin leather saddle cleaner/leather softener. I really spent some time working it into the sandals and then I wore them around until they dried out and did that a couple times.

The recommendation to soak in warm water was great! Thank you.

Do you clean them with saddle soap regularly? Or did you just do this when they were new to "condition" them?
I have a pair of leather Rainbows and I love them, but after about two years of solid use, they have developed a formidable aroma. I haven't read many good recommendations on how to clean them, and I was considering using saddle soap for this.

I have used saddle soap for cleaning after the initial conditioning and it never fails. It does a thorough cleaning and re-conditions them all over again. Just use a soft bristled brush.
