Comments about Johnston & Murphy LEATHER PROTECTOR:
This junk literally stripped the dye out my "brand new", gucci loafers. Im assuming this protector is made for lower grade leather, but regardless, I highly suggest never putting this product on anything that is of premium quality.

Q:Is this appropriate for tan oiled leather products as well?Asked on 12/5/2013 by Ryan from Philadelphia
A:Tan oiled leather is a low maintenance material that is already water resistant. Leather Protector would do no harm, but is not necessary for this material.Answered on 1/15/2014 by Garrett from J&M Direct
Q:I just purchased my first pair of J&M shoes along with the leather balm, shoe cream, and protector. I was planning on using the balm and cream every 4-5 wears but applying the protector every 3-4 months. Is that timetable correct?Asked on 12/4/2013 by new to J&M
A:The leather protector should be applied every few months. However, I may recommend less frequent use of the balm and cream. Approximately once a month may be appropriate to use the balm and cream, depending on wear.Answered on 1/9/2014 by Garrett from J&M Direct

Q:I just bought a pair of brown Corvell lace-ups with the polished finish (i.e. darker tips, not to be used with shoe polish). Is the leather protector recommended for them? And if so, is there any change in directions of use? Thanks.Asked on 10/25/2013 by Trey from Denver, CO
A:The leather protector would extend the life of the leather upper on this product. Simply apply the protector and allow time to dry.Answered on 11/22/2013 by Garrett from J&M Direct
Q:When using this in the last step of the 3 step process, should you just spray the shoes and leave them alone? Or should you spray them and then wipe spray and rub it further with a cloth?Asked on 7/11/2013 by Chris
A:I used this on a suede-like leather, not a polished leather, and just left it on after I sprayed it. I'd think maybe if you sprayed it on polished leather you might buff the shoe with a soft cloth after it dried? I don't know for sure, though.Answered on 7/11/2013 by Anonymous
Q:Just to be safe - can the Leather Protector be used safely on suede? More specifically, will the color of the suede affect the results (gray)?Asked on 6/9/2013 by Sean from United States
A:The Leather Protector would not be a good choice for suede shoes as it could adversely affect the natural nap of the suede. Please consider the Johnston & Murphy Suede & Nubuck Protector (Item# 93-403).Answered on 7/3/2013 by Thaddeus from J&M Direct
Q:Should one coat/spray of leather protector be sufficient for my new leather boots?Asked on 3/20/2013 by shoe fan from Altona, NY
A:Yes.Answered on 4/5/2013 by Taylor from J&M
Q:I have a new pair of wingtips that has an upper design that is part suede and part regular leather. I have both the J&M leather protector and the suede/nubuck protector. Should I use one or the other? It may be too hard to use both, due to design of shoe. Or should I get a spray from somewhere else that can be used on both suede and leather?Asked on 3/17/2013 by Kevin
A:Using the Leather Protector by itself will be sufficient.Answered on 4/10/2013 by Anonymous from J&M
Q:Can this be used on my Portfolio Briefcase?Asked on 10/20/2012 by Scott

Q:does leather protector makes shoe water resistant?
Should this be used fist before shoe cream?
what does shoe balm do what shoe cream does not?Asked on 2/17/2012 by Anonymous
A:The Leather Protector does not make a shoe waterproof; it adds a layer of protection to the shoe that helps prevent water, snow, and salt stains. This product is best used prior to first wear and after each cleaning (following Shoe Cream application). The Leather Balm is used to clean shoes prior to polishing; both products condition and moisturize leather.Answered on 2/23/2012 by Amanda from J & M
