Frye Weatherproof Spray
The directions on the bottle are not difficult to follow; however, as soon as you spray it on it leaves huge dark spots that are impossible to remove/blend with the cloth it specifies you wipe with in the directions. In other words, this stuff will completely stain your expensive pair of Frye boots. I will never use this product again; it's going in the garbage. If you are looking for a weatherproofing agent, use the Frye conditioning cream also sold at Nordstrom. Luckily I had some and it additionally helped to minimize the stains left behind from the spray although they are still visible.
I will never buy another pair of boots without using this stuff. Fab!
Does what it says
Pros: My Frye boots survived a wintery mix yesterday, looking no worse for wear. It does a fantastic job of weatherproofing your leather boots.
Cons: it does really darken the leather. At least two or three shades darker. It faded a bit as it dried, but not too much. So if you're in love with the shade of the leather, don't use this. It does warn about some darkening on the bottle. I still was surprised by just how much darker it made it. But for me, weatherproofing was more important than keeping the color.
Be careful when you spray...
I purchased this to weatherproof my new Frye Veronica boots. The spray had a very nice mist at first, but you still have to wipe the excess oil away quickly. I finished with one boot, then when I started to spray the second shoe, all of a sudden the oil came shooting out in a hard stream. When it hit the boot, it made ugly streaks in the leather. I tried to rub it out, but the heavy oil stain stayed. Be careful when using this product that you spray it on a cloth and rub the leather quickly instead of spraying directly on the leather. That way you won't get weird streak marks if the oil comes shooting out in a forceful stream.
