Smith’s Leather Balm is a non toxic leather conditioner designed to restore worn leather, protect new leather goods and handmade in Maine. Works well with John Candor Shoes and Leather Goods. 

We wanted a product that could be safely applied by hand.  A substitute for the toxic products we saw on shelves with harmful chemicals and warning labels.

The 1 oz. tin fits conveniently in a pocket or gear.  Based on usage, it will last most customers 6 months to a year.

The 4oz tin, based on usage, will last most customers 2-3 years. 


-1 oz. or 4 oz. Handmade in Maine
-Made with only 3 all natural ingredients
-Can be applied safely by hand without a rag or messy clean up
-Fits conveniently in a pocket or gear
-Neutral color; works on all smooth leathers.


1. Ensure that leather goods are clean and dry.
2. Test small amount on a hidden patch of leather to preview results. Some lighter colored leathers may darken slightly.
3. Start with a small amount. A little goes a long way.
4. Best applied by hand and massaged into leather, but a clean rag works also.
5. Leather will absorb the balm immediately. 
6. Repeat as necessary to protect, restore, and extend life of leather goods.

Product Details

Our recipe is no secret, we’re proud of it. Every batch of Smith’s is handmade in Maine from just 3 all-natural ingredients. We start with 100% organic cocoa butter. Next, we add 100% organic beeswax. Finally, we introduce 100% pure sweet almond oil. That’s it. No animal fats, synthetic compounds, preservatives or petroleum based products. Just the safest, highest quality natural ingredients. Always. Read more below about each ingredient.

Organic cocoa butter is not commonly used in leather care due to it’s high cost. It has become one of the most highly sought after ingredients in natural cosmetic supplies and skin conditioners. Cocoa butter is rich in vitamin E and contains natural antioxidants that help fight the premature aging and deterioration of leather.
Organic beeswax is safer and more effective than other barrier creams like petroleum jelly which contain harmful chemicals that can damage stitching. It acts as a natural waterproofer, sealing the leather and helping protect it from harsh elements. In addition, beeswax functions as a moisturizer, softening stiff, rigid leather.
Pure sweet almond oil is rich in vitamins A, E and B. It’s a preferred ingredient in natural health and beauty products. The almond oil we source is 100% sweet, cold pressed and refined. During the refining process the harmful tree nut allergen is extracted so it will not trigger any tree nut allergies. Almond oil has many wonderful health benefits and works to improve the overall look and feel of leather goods.

If you're normally a range with other brands, we recommend selecting the larger size with ours.

Our dress sneaker design has a narrow toe box and we do not have wide sizes. If you usually buy wide we recommend trying 1/2 size up. Unfortunately if you're always an EE or larger ours won't fit.

Our shoes come with orthotic insoles which are thicker than regular flat insoles. If you wear thick socks we recommend going 1/2 size up.
