Can I dye leather shoes, pants or a jacket?

Rub ‘n Restore® is a finish, not a dye, but it is still great for restoring genuine leather shoes, boots, jackets, coats, and pants.

Our finishes are not recommended for kidskin leather, which is very thin, soft, and a little stretchy. Don’t waste your time with faux leather, which resists all coatings and may eventually peel or flake away on its own.

Dramatic color changes are discouraged due to the stress along joints where your foot, knee, elbow, or shoulder move. The color will wear more quickly in these areas, revealing fine lines of the original color beneath. Boots and shoes wear particularly fast because of their contact with asphalt, chemicals, dirt and water.
