I bought a new pair of Frye Carson shortie's in burnt red & conditioned them with Apple conditioner instead of the Frye conditioner because the Frye turns them darker. I then sprayed 2 coats of Apple Garde Rain & Stain repellant, allowing each coat to dry. Tonight I wore them for the second time. It isn't even raining but I think my doormat was dewy. When I wiped my feet I got water spots on the boots. I rubbed them with my fingers & it has been about 2 hours & they haven't dried out. They are tiny but it is still frustrating. Now I'm worried about all my purses I thought were protected with these products and upset about my boots. It won't work to apply the Frye conditioner now. It will make my boots darker but it won't get rid of the stain because I already stained my tan Frye Carson then applied the Frye conditioner hoping to hide the stain but it didn't. Anyone got any ideas?
