So ill go with Kiwi Saddle Soap, Obenauf's Leather Oil
Do you have any opinion or remember reading any comments if Obenuaf's Heavy Duty LP or Sno will have a darker effect on a tan pair of Wolverine's? I'm pretty much dead set on tan as a first pair but want them as dark as possible. Just curious. Thanks for your help again
I haven't used the LP but I can confirm that SnoSeal darkens the Tans significantly. A bit too much in my case. I went too heavy on the snoseal (with hairdryer to soak in). I definitely wanted to darken them because they were far too light right out of the box but in retrospect I should have gone easier on the snoseal until I acheived the shade desired. My heavy handed method not only darkened them a little more than I would have liked but also made the color inconsistent. Some areas are darker than others, although now, after several months it is starting to even out a little bit.
Bottom line, with either LP or snoseal be PATIENT. You can always go a little darker but it is difficult, if not impossible, to go back lighter.
On the other hand, as Crane's says, eventually they will get darker no matter what you do so most likely all I did was hasten the process.
