Pros: Extends Shoe Life, Easy To Use

Best Uses: Regular Maintenance

Describe Yourself: Conservative

I was convinced of this product while shopping in Park City back in 1999. I had some J&M shoes and was in the store there looking when the salesperson brought up the balm--he actually poured a bit out and rubbed it on his hands as lotion! Funny bit that, but it's stuck with me, and the balm has been a staple since then in the household. If you've been looking for a good leather conditioning cream, look no further. Buy, apply, repeat. 'Tween the balm and shoetrees/allowing the shoes to rest 24 hours between wearing will maximize the life of your shoes.

Crafted of supple full-grain leather with super-soft sheepskin lining for a comfortable fit and feel. Multi-layered sheepskin footbed, padded tongue and collar offer cushioned comfort. Molded latex rubber sole for flexibility.

Sizing: Feels true to size

Width: Feels true to width

Pros: Comfortable, Attractive Design, Durable, Flexible

Best Uses: Wear To Work

Describe Yourself: Comfort Driven

I have been wearing J&M for about 15 years now, class-act company, good prices, excellent value. Get a set of their shoe trees, allow your shoes to rest 24 hours between wearing,(rotate them), hit them up with some of the leather balm as needed and you'll get a decade out of them. Has worked for me.
