Obenauf's LP: It works - Page 5

post #61 of 210
Just used some Obernaufs on my russell mocassins. Used to use pecard's leather dressing which was good but I like the finish of Obernauf's better. I used a hair dryer to help the shoes absorb it. Several light coats are the way to go. Not too much in one application or they will end up attracting dirt.

Anyone used the LP on dress shoes. Consensus here seems to be to use the oil on dress shoes but i have the LP and a pair of AE beaters id like to treat.

In other words, will the LP cause damage to dress shoes?

you dont use obenaufs on dry tanned leather, suede ( unless you wanna dub them) the likes use it only on oiled leather or chromexcel leather and you only use obenaufs with dried out leather not with barely new leather

I was given a bottle of Pecards and was wondering how it compares to obernaufs?

Anyone know's what will happen if I apply this shit on wheat colored boots similar to these:



I should add that mine are really old and faded.

If that's nubuck or suede (can't quite tell from the pic), I wouldn't recommend obenaufs.

Might help you light them on fire...

I am currently using Mink oil for my black leather 1000 Miles and TBC Tackhead boots. Are there any drawbacks with using mink oil instead of Obenaufs? Has anyone compared the two? Thanks.

According to Russell Moccasin, you should actually avoid using mink oil. I've also read elsewhere that mink oil softens leather by breaking down its fibers, not by conditioning them.

how does this compare to the montana pitch blend?

I have a pair of Chippewa work boots that could use some TLC. Picked up some Obenauf's and here is the result on one of the boots after the first application.

Pardon the crummy photos--

False. According to most leather experts out there and also Lexol, mink oil does not damage leather. It's a best/decent/good conditioner depends on whom you ask

I actually own a bottle of mink oil, but since I've heard mixed reviews about it from sources I feel are reliable, and since I've never heard any source that I feel is reliable say that Obenauf's can harm leather, I'm going to stick with the LP.
