I've used the Saphir suede spray with no darkening effects on my suede. I'll likely try the Nano at some point as well.

Nice! I ordered a pair of these over the Summer (same time as I preordered the tankers, which arrived Dec 30th) but haven't heard from Leffot yet. Which preorder were these from?

Thanks, CEE. I pre-ordered these on 7/25 and they shipped on 11/8. I believe these were the first of the two orders.
I also ordered the tankers on the second pre-order and recieved them last week or the week before.

I am one that does not believe that issues with fit in store will get dramatically better with time.

Quit flexing and bending your ankles and forefoot for God's sake!  :rotflmao:

thanks be. i have a #8 only brush and ocd. the brush is clean and in good order. i did hear someone mention a boar brush recently.

thanks, i have a german product "collonil" I've used it on my navy suede leffot lwbs. the spray did not change the color, but navy was already pretty dark to begin with. i will try nano when i run out of the can i have (which may be in years, i don't spray my suede often).

Not that I don't believe you:satisfied:but a picture of all four of them side by side would be appropriate following your statement :stirpot:

 

Thanks kindly.

That pic was taken in very bright daylight.
After i sprayed it went from tan to a more of a brown shade.
I use AE's suede spray and there was no change in color.  When first applied it looks darker bc they are wet.  But after a couple of minutes of drying, they look the same as new.  Maybe it's your product??

I have used suede sprays from AE, Meltonian, and Tarrago. None of them have darkened my suede (Alden's snuff and mocha kid; EG's nutmeg).
