Recently purchased Nano Protector from Leffot (http://leffot.com/shop/index.php/nano-protector-1334.html
) and also the Saphir Suede Care Starter Kit (http://www.hangerproject.com/saphir-suede-care-starter-kit.html#.UcZtnfke98E
) from the Hanger Project, which includes both Shapir Renovateur and Shapir Super Invulner Protector. I have a pair of snuff suede alden chukkas x JCrew (crepe sole) and I want to protect them so I can start wearing them and no get worried about a sudden rainstorm. What would you gentlemen recommend as far as preparing these for their first use? Is Nano Protector or Saphir Super Invulner preferred over each other? What does the Shapir Renovateur do? How often and how much should I apply of this stuff?
i recently purchased the nano protector as well to apply to some leather soul safari boots. i don't know if you watched the video on the leffot website of the water just running off the shoes, but i tested it and that's exactly what it does. it doesn't change the color at all or do anything to the shoe. it will change the hue a tiny bit if you spray it too close or too much on (i did this in one small spot) but the color change will go away in a few hours. i'm normally averse to using synthetic products ever, especially on anything that's natural like a hide, but this stuff rocks. after i applied it to the shoes, my girlfriend applied it to some suede pants she had. some thing. works amazing.
