The spray waterproofer "to waterproof & protect all types of leather" and on the back it lists suede http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF644_1_40000000001_-1

Is this the proper one?

Yep, that's what I used.

I've used AE suede spray on 2 different pairs of suede chukkas with no adverse effects either.

did you spray it on too heavy perhaps? i think you are only supposed to spray a light coat on. 

 

also, there should not be a reason to brush the suede at all when it's new and not dirty.

Maybe I went to heavy. I brushed it the day after I sprayed them because the nap was completely flat. Rubbing my finger on the shoe, the color would not change at all. After a bit of brushing, the texture came back, but not as rich as when they were unsprayed.

sounds like you went too heavy with the spray or something.

 

i wouldn't worry about it and just wear the heck out of them. the suede would not look good as new for long anyway. ;)

I used the whole can when I did it and brushed after it dried to restore the nap (not that it even really needed it)

wow, that seems like way too much. i just lightly mist it on, let it dry and call it done.

No - the whole can?

Are you putting us on?

A few packages were waiting for me when I got home tonight.

Going to add quite a few more calfskin. I think they are underrated.
post #51492 of 91629

The whole can on 2 pairs.  Its small for an aerosol can, but I understand what you are saying.  It dried quick (almost instantly) compared to other suede protectants that I have used, so I just kept on applying.  Hopefully they are thoroughly protected from my generous application.

 

At the same time, I did it outside, so a lot of it might have gotten taken away with the wind.

 

Anyway, yes, the whole can, no adverse effects.

I agree that the AE spray runs out faster than I expected. I make one or two quick passes with the spray from about 8 inches to a foot away.

I got caught in heavy rain the other day in some suede chukkas, and the water beaded up nicely.

No worries.  I put on an even coat.  Let t dry.  Then apply again.  Seems to be sufficient as water beads up nicely on the of chance I get caught in the rain  .   .   .
