We are happy to present our review of Leather Keep from the Australian Stock Saddle Co. We found Leather Keep at Western States Horse Expo this year. There was a kind woman working at the booth that offered to polish up our boots, and we were happy to accept. We were instantly impressed with the shine this product left, without leaving a greasy or sticky residue. Once soaked in, you cannot feel any difference in the leather other than it is a little more supple. She also demonstrated its waterproofing abilities…which she did by pouring water on my toes! The water balled and ran off and left the boots totally dry.
We purchased a tub and have used it on several pair of boots and a couple of our leather bags. This product has removed old scuffs and enriched dyed and scratched leather back to its normal coloring (see photos of before and after applying). It’s left a nice shine and feel to the leather, however the affects only last about a week before needing a coat of Leather Keep again. It does help leather stay very supple and soft.
It was also able to restore some color stripped paddock boots that were damaged by using another leather cleaning product (Leather Honey). Thank goodness for Leather Keep!
It is easy to apply and does not stick to your hands. It has a neutral smell. We have not used this on our tack, but we do recommend this for boots and bags.
