    Obenauf's will darken leather a fair bit. it will lighten a little with time, though.

    Where can I buy Obenauf's in Manhattan? (Would prefer to pick up in person rather than order through the mail.)

    Did you have any luck finding Obenaufs locally in DC or did you end up ordering some?

    I never used Obenaufs but Dr Marten "wonder balsam" is basically the same product and easily to get on zappos or dmusastore.com

    If you have leather soles, you should apply the thing to the soles too right?

    Just used it on three pairs of boots and two pairs of shoes. Great stuff. My loafers had some alcohol stains and not I can't see them anymore...

    It's going on all my boots and a lot of my shoes.

    Can the second coat be applied immediately when the shoes are no longer shiny/oily (so like 10 minutes) or when it's had time to absorb (like a few hours or next day)???

    I suggest reading the article on leather care on the Russell Moccasin website. A lot of good info there.
