This stuff is fantastic. Of course it works great on leather shoes, but... It is also a necessity for canvas sneakers, and waterproofing/protecting tons of other gear. It comes in a cardboard package and is all natural. Really a fantastic and well thought out product.
A must have for Chicago snowstorms. This wax has protected my leather boots for many years. Darkens the color a bit, but absolutely worth it to prolong the life of great leather goods.
For many years I have applied Gorilla Wax on my nose, checks, finger tips, and ear lobes when biking, running or swimming in very cold, dry, or hot environments. There is no harsh condition equivalent to Gorilla Wax that is also natural, without unpleasant odor, or uncomfortable oily consistency. It is easy to remove from skin with warm water and soap. I have also used Gorilla for several years to prolong the life of zippers, and to compliment garment & gear seam seals. The only thing I have not used it for is its intended purpose as a boot leather sealant since I tend towards synthetic boot materials such as Event fabric. I am sure there are many other alternate uses for activities I don't participate in. Love to hear about them if you have found some. I highly recommend Gorilla Wax! I may sound like a salesman. However, I have no relationship with Oliberte except as a devoted customer for their all natural wax. My Daughter gave me my first tube many years ago as a Christmas present. I pretended to like it, but had no idea at the time that it would become a staple of my outdoor activities. Thank you Lindsey! A tube seems to last forever when used for the purposes describe above. I use it for skin protection 5 or 6 time a week from November to April and periodically as require during the Michigan summers or when traveling to harsh environments.
After having tried various similar care products for leather shoes, I really have to say that Gorilla Wax is by far the best. The tube makes it very easy to apply (no need for an applicator or to waste a cloth) and the ingredients are beautifully simple and natural. Although I don't mind a slight darkening of the leather, I have found that Gorilla Wax affects the colour much less than other products. I also can vouch for the quality of the waterproofing: just last week I was stuck in a downpour wearing my Adibos and my feet were dry and the shoes weathered the storm just fine. I really would recommend adding a tube to any purchase of shoes, bags, etc., it's definitely worth having.
I don't know why someone would spend this kind of money on boots & not go ahead and buy the wax! I debated myself since I was trying to be frugal, but I'm glad I got it. It spreads on like a glue stick in circles & I used my fingers to rub it it. The ingredients are wonderful. It is a very small container but it could easily cover multiple shoes (which I plan to buy from Oliberte!). Customer service is great as well.
This is a fantastic product! It is Super easy to apply. I thought the tube seemed a little small but i quickly realized that a little goes a long way. The one tube should last me quite awhile. The application did darken the color of the leather a bit but I actually prefer the darker, richer color. I am very happy with the results and I think it will hold up well in inclement weather.
It's so easy to apply it - and I love that my hands don't get messy. You should test it on a small area of the shoe first, but you should do that for any wax on your shoes to make sure it doesn't affect the color or material too much. I actually also used it on my son's hockey stick and works like a charm.
Well very deceived by the size of the container. its about the size of a bic lighter...I am sure that it will be a good product as the wax content feels like a good quality bees wax..
