    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Allen Edmonds Saddle Soap The current product is 1.5 oz vs 3 oz the size of previous Allen Edmonds Saddle Soap. The 1.5 oz is the same price as previous 3 oz. As a price/value proposition it is a ripoff. If i had realized the size change, I would not have bought. Boo on me. Moe

    Would you recommend this product for my textured bond street cap toes that got some cooking oil on them?

    There are oil spots on my shoes, is there anything you could recommend to help remove them?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    We're sorry to say that in most cases oil stains leave a permanent spot on the leather. You can try to do a deep clean with Saddle Soap. Keep in mind, it may discolor the finish, so you may need to do this on the entire upper to later apply an even coat of Cream Polish and Carnauba Wax to restore. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee if this method will completely remove the stain or restore the original finish. Consider trying in an inconspicuous area first to see you get your desired results. If you have further questions, please call us at 877-817-7615.

    If use it on your suede leather, will AE Saddle Soap change the color or texture?

    I have an older pair of two tone suede saddles with a discolored toe box due to water exposure Would cleaning with your saddle soap restore a consistent color or is the discoloration permanent? Thanks,
    Asked by: GSA
    This product is not safe for use on Suede or Nubuck. You should only use the Suede Cleaning System.

    Would the saddle soap take away shoe color?

    Asked by: Allen Edmonds Fan
    Thank you for being an Allen Edmonds customer. Saddle soap is simply a topical cleaning agent and does not remove the finish or dye from the leather. We hope this information is helpful

    I have a pair of your Eastport Boat Shoes in Navy Color:

    Steps 2 & 3 of your 5-step shoe care process indicate the need to use a "cream polish" to be followed by a "speed polish", however, I see that you do not offer a cream polish nor the speed polish in a navy color. What do you suggest I use for steps 2 & 3 since you do not offer a navy color for these 2 steps of shoe care?

    We recommend Neutral Cream Polish and Neutral Speed Polish for the Navy styles. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!

    I have a pair of Navy Oak Street shoes. What kind and color shoe polish do you recommend?

    Asked by: TD
    Chromexcel leather is known to be self-polishing due to the high content of oils infused in the hide. The appearance of most scuffs can be minimized by rubbing the leather with your fingers. Simply brushing with a horsehair brush or using a soft cloth will warm up the oils and dyes and redistribute them throughout those areas. Shoe polish is not recommended as it will not be effective on this type of leather. If you wish, you may use Leather Lotion. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!
