Rated 2 out of 5 by Grzegorz2 from AE: please put the label info on the website. Be aware: "Also recommended for use on lighter colored footwear to maintain an enduring finish." This is from the label on the bottle, and I don't see this on the website. On my - darker? - shoes (AE colors cognac, chili, walnut, etc.) this leather lotion leaves a subtle chalky appearance. Took me a while to notice it and to figure out where it was coming from. Before the quote above, the label says: "Recommended for use on such items as wallets, card cases, folios, belts and briefcases." Seems shoes were an afterthought. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my AE shoes, and with refurbishing have had some for a decade or more. This product is not what I need for my shoes, and since I can't put it in my eyes or swallow it (the label again), guess I'll go out and buy myself a card case and folio so I can use the rest of this bottle up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great product. Use it regularly and it keeps the leather smooth and supple and with a little brushing puts on a nice shine. Great product. Use it regularly and it keeps the leather smooth and supple and with a little brushing puts on a nice shine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeorgeNYC from New Bottle Style New bottle style with the new AE Rebranding, looks very clean and polished. Looks like it is the same product as before but the packaging.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Downtown Guy from This is terrible product, especially when compared to older lotion packaging. Bought a number of bottles and the packaging is terrible!! Two pumps have stopped working and the others barely work. The lotion itself seems relatively same but I’ve become so aggravated with the pump/bottle I can’t be objective. Very disappointing on any level but especially so coming from AE.

Did this replace the Conditioner Cleaner?
We apologize, the Cleaner/Conditioner has been discontinued. You may use our Saddle Soap to clean the shoes and our Leather Lotion to condition them. If you have further questions feel free to contact us again!

Is this prefered over frequent polishing? I have stopped polishing and now use a leather lotion and buff .... shoes look much better natural
Not necessarily as they are to be used as needed; it also depends a lot on the type of leather. The main purpose of Leather Lotion is to condition the leather and Shoe Polish is used to restore color and luster. If your shoes do not need to have the color restored or maybe you prefer them with a vintage look, feel free to continue to use the Leather Lotion if you are getting your desired results. Thank you for contacting us!

Not for cordovan?
I ordered cordovan leeds over the phone and your sales rep sold me this along with it. Now that I go to use it, I’m seeing not for cordovan?
How does this condition the leather after it's been polished?
It is my understanding that polish is designed to protect the leather from water absorption, in addition to adding shine, so how does this product work after the polish has been applied? Does it change the luster of the shoe polish or add shine?
We recommend applying Leather Lotion as needed, it is a optional step. Leather Lotion is formulated to condition the leather. If applied, we suggest a coat of shoe polish afterwards. If you have other questions, please let us know!

On the label it states it will lighten darker colored shoes. Is this ok to use on black and/or oxblood 5th Avenues?
Thank you for your interest in our products. Every care product is carefully chosen to be specifically used with our shoes. Our leather lotion is fine to use with both the black and oxblood 5th Avenue shoes.

Will this darken the color of a lighter shoe, specifially the color of the Strand Oxford Captoe in Walnut?
Thank you for being an Allen Edmonds customer. The Leather Lotion should not affect the color of your shoe. It hydrates the leather and it is not for use on suede or nubuck shoes.
