Bought this for my brand new Jadon boots. 'Worked great to protect them from the salt & elements all winter long! A must for your Doc Martens.

I love this stuff. I originally bought a jar 5 years ago for some raw leather boots I had, and it worked wonders. I use it now to keep my work shoes conditioned and scuff-free. The price is very reasonable, and I forsee myself repurchasing again and again- though, a jar last forever so it's rarely necessary to do so. I love that they've upgraded from plastic to metal, too.

This stuff is pretty great. I like that it's clear and something you don't have to apply carefully or let dry. It's made with natural stuff and sinks into leather, which helps with softening and protection. Some reviews have given the impression it's 100% natural, but it doesn't smell that way. Although there isn't a list of all the ingredients so I can't confirm that. I bought the balsam primarily for a nearly new, secondhand pair of Dr. Martens I recently acquired. Even though I have coconut oil at home that I could use on them, I wanted something a little more protective, but still somewhat natural. I've applied it almost every night to my Docs, and they really have softened nicely. I'm going to start spacing out applications more now that they've been broken in for a few weeks. I should note that my pair are U.K. made so the leather is different and much softer than more recently made pairs. Although I have also applied this to my other pair of flat soled Docs (which were more recently made) as well as a pair of good quality leather Frye boots. I thought both were in great condition, but this stuff makes them even better. Overall, it's worth a try. Read the almost completely five star reviews and decide for yourself. It's inexpensive and it's great for all types of leather footwear and the different climates that footwear is in.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstock, Frye, Nike

Fantastic, This product is a 100% natural "old-school" method for treating and protecting leather. It's not messy and comes in neat can with applicator. I use it on all leather and very glad I found it.

Bought the Shoe Balsam after reading the reviews. It lives up to what I was expecting. I have used it on my Keens, Birkenstocks and my Dr. Martens. It applies quickly and evenly without making the leather look over glossy like overdressed car tires. I was skeptical, but the balsam does a great job of repelling water spots and the muck from parking lots and city streets. I work in sales and spend most of the day running in and out of offices and driving all over the DC metro area. My shoes take a beating, but look tip-top. Considering that only a small amount is needed to get the desired results, the balsam is a bargain. It's the best shoe dressing that you haven't tried yet. Get some!

I'd also recommend: Keen, Birkenstock
