It wasn't a scuff or indentation. It was more like sticky residue in the shape of the rim of the shot glass. Point taken though.

In my limited experience Nano will darken lighter suede somewhat, viz.:

 

 

 

The one on the right has been sprayed; the one on the left has not.

What if you brush up the nap on the darker one? 

post #2944 of 4298

No change, alas.

 

Given that some people experience darkening and some don't, I wonder what the relevant variable is?

How close did you spray and how much did you use? I have used nano spray on like 15 different pairs of suede with no effect at all

I can’t recall exactly—it was a few months ago.  Perhaps around 8 inches, and enough that everything was evenly covered.  They have a video on their website, and I followed that.

This is my experience as well. Identical darkening of snuff suede after spraying with the nano spray. Not sure if I'll try it again as I also have Saphir Invulner.


The one on the right has been sprayed; the one on the left has not.

Quote malfunction. meant to say this is my experience as well. The nano darkened my snuff suede shoes to the same degree.
post #2949 of 4298

Snuff naturally darkens a fairly significant amount over time, so that should be taken into account.  The spray could expedite that process, but it hasn't been my experience.  

 

Edit: Steve, sorry of clogging up the thread. If anybody else has Nano or suede care Qs, they should head to the suede shoe or shoe care threads

The only drawback to the Nano is that it doesn't last very long. 

 

Yes, once you get comfortable with this first pair and realize how versatile and easy to maintain suede is, I suspect you will buy a couple more.  I am up to 9 pairs.

This sounds good, but I'm also interested in the chukka and Chelsea that were just mentioned as being open till the 18th.

Just got another package from the wonderful Steve! The newest member to the family is the chocolate suede adelaide to go along with its brother, the tobacco suede adelaide. The tobacco suede is from Skotie and the tobacco belt is from Steve. As you can tell, the belt and shoes are a different shade of tobacco, due in part to Carmina using a different supplier, but they are close enough to wear together. As usual, Steve was on point with everything! Thanks again sir! On to the pics:
