Greatest Shoe Product Ever Made!!!!
on November 12, 2013
I bought Sno Seal out of the recommendation of my best friend. He used it on a pair of boots he wore and always raved about how amazing the stuff was at waterproofing the leather and keeping his feet dry. Living in Oregon, wet feet in the winter is hard to avoid. I had just accepted this as a price for living where I did.
But I decided to take his advice and use Sno-Seal. And I have to say, I am more than amazed. It is an incredibly effective product. It is super easy to apply. Youll want to get whatever leather you are waterproofing nice and warm ( I used a spaceheater). Then you just keep rubbing the wax into the leather until no more can be absorbed. Thats it.
NOW, there is a huge disclaimer that I feel the bottle doesnt truly give justice. This will drastically change the color of the leather. I have a pair of Clarks that were tan. Sno-Seal turned them a shade of dark brown. I knew this was going to happen after seeing my roommates shoes (the color change was actually half the reason I bought the stuff; it gives incredible depth and character to the leather that is very appealing). IF YOU USE THIS ON LIGHT LEATHER, IT WILL DARKEN IT BY A LARGE MARGIN. Just be aware of that and spot test if you are unsure of it.
But that being said, this stuff works great. Water beads off my boots now and my feet are staying dry in conditions that would otherwise leave me soaked. Great price, easy to apply, and will lengthen the life of your leather products by a huge amount. Couldnt recommend this stuff more!
