Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Renew your shoes I like this product a lot because it brings back the life of my shoes. Just by applying it I clean them and restore the original color and texture of the leather. The need for coloured cream is a lot less, or not need anymore. I use it also on my camping boots, and after a tough weekend on the field, I restore them almost like knew with this product. For a great view and long life, I trust this saddle soap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from This product works really well at removing dirt and old polish I like to completely clean and remove all old polish from my shoes before polishing them. This product is easy to use with the Allen Edmonds applicator brushes, lathers up perfectly without too much water need and does a great job of cleaning the leather. It's a part of my routine shoe polishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Product I have an older pair of brown leather boots, which had been damaged by salt brine used in Minnesota winters. The leather surface had fissures and swells from this, as well as inconsistent and damaged color. I decided to use the saddle soap on these boots to test the product, amazing does not even begin to describe the results! After using the saddle soap once over the boots the original brown luster seemed to pop right back as if it were never gone. The fissures seemed to disappear as well. The only thing visible were scallops from the swells. I used the soap a second time the next day and buffed the boots with a large horse hair brush. I worked the swelled area the hardest and finished with a coat of leather lotion and a buffing rag. The results from this product were phenomenal my boots look and wear as if they were new. The only thing left visible, only at close inspection, is a small ridge line where the swells ended.

Is saddle soap the ideal product to use in the care of your Long Branch Wingtip Boots in 6043 Golden Brown Chromexcel Leather?
I just purchased a pair of your Long Branch Wingtip Boots in 6043 Golden Brown Chromexcel Leather and I absolutely love them. However, in store I was recommended the Premium Leather Conditioner you sell, and I was told by your sales associate never to use a polish on this particular leather. I was wondering if I would ever need saddle soap to clean the boot prior to applying the conditioner? Or if I may even use saddle soap on the Chromexcel Leather?
Typically it is not necessary to use cleaners on brand new footwear. We suggest using our Leather Lotion or Premium Leather Conditioner for regular care. Once the leather needs to be cleaned then it is appropriate to use the Saddle Soap. We do not recommend using Premium Shoe Polish for this type of leather. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

What is the difference between saddle soap and shoe conditioner? When should each be used? I have a pair of Strand, McAllister, and Park Avenues.
The Saddle Soap is a simply soap specifically formulated for leather, and the Conditioner Cleaner is a mix of soap and conditioning agents. It is typically not necessary to use these products on new shoes, but they can be used once the leather starts to age and develops polish buildup. To clean a new pair of shoes, you can use a lightly damp cotton cloth to remove surface dust. You can use either one depending on your desired result, once the shoe needs to be cleaned and before applying polish. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

What products do you recommend for cleaning and conditioning the Sturgis Boot?
The shifting pedal on my motorcycle leaves a mark on my Sturgis Boots, and I would like to avoid any permanent damage by cleaning the spot after every use. Please let me know what products to use--both for removing the dirt from the pedal, and for maintaining the smooth feel of the boots. Which products should I avoid using on this particular boot? (ex. Can I use saddle soap?) Thank you.
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds. We only recommend using Leather Lotion by Allen Edmonds to care for the Sturgis Plain Toe Boot. The leather upper of the Sturgis style is treated to help repel water and avoid staining, and as a result it can tolerate splashes of water. However, keep in mind that they are not considered to be waterproof and the leather is susceptible to damage and stains since leather is a naturally porous material. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Saddle Soap Application
Sorry for my ignorance. I think of 'soap' as something I wash my car or face with...suds it up, apply it and rinse it off. But when I read about "saddle soap", I see instructions like "apply with cloth or dauber, allow to dry and wipe off". So do I apply saddle soap just like a paste wax to shoes - rub it into the leather finish right out of the can, allow to sit a few minutes, and polish it off with a clean cloth? OR, do I use water with the saddle soap, to suds it up, then apply the wet foam and allow to dry before polishing off? I'm using leather lotion or lotion/cleaner as described in your various instructions, but afraid of the saddle soap application. I have a number of your casual shoes that you suggest saddle soap for. Thank you so much!
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds. Our Saddle Soap is a paste or wax-like substance, similar in comparison to our Carnauba Wax. This can be applied and wiped off on its own, no water necessary, using a cloth or dauber. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions. Allen Edmonds Customer Service

What products are useful for darkening a pair of Bruces (to bring them nearer to their color on the site)?
I bought a pair of Bruces and have heard that both saddle soap and chamois oil will help darken the leather (along with general wear). Are both of these effective, and if so, which is more recommended?
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds. We recommend using our Allen Edmonds Saddle Soap, which cleans all smooth leather shoes while restoring the leather's natural oils; though the leather may darken somewhat over time, it will be a very insignificant change. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions. Allen Edmonds Customer Service

When I was in the Army, I used saddle soap to strip off the old polish and wax. Should I use that, or the conditioner/cleaner or something else?
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds. We do not offer a product specifically recommended for stripping the polish and wax off of your shoes. Instead, we recommend our Allen Edmonds Conditioner Cleaner, which is used to remove surface area residue and to keep leather soft and pliable.

For the rough collection, should aqua-care shoe cream be applied first followed by saddle soap? Or should only saddle soap be applied?
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds. The Allen Edmonds Rough Collection offers a variety of different leathers including Wax Infused, Saddle, Distressed, and Bison; therefore, each requires specific care. Although most of the shoes call for Conditioner Cleaner and Saddle Soap, some instead require Suede Nubuck Protector, Leather Lotion, Premium Shoe Polish or Spray Waterproofer. For styles that require Conditioner Cleaner and Saddle Soap, such as the Dornoch, McTavish, Lubbock, Bruce, and Black Hills, start by using Allen Edmonds Conditioner Cleaner to remove surface residue and to keep leather soft and pliable. Follow with Allen Edmonds Saddle Soap which has been formulated to clean all smooth leather shoes while restoring the leather’s natural oils.
