Frequently asked questions
Is the date stamped on the bottom of my can an expiration date?
No. If your can has a date or code stamped on the bottom that is the Poured On or manufactured date. It's used for tracking purposes. We've received cans of Huberds that are decades old, opened them up, and successfully used them on leather. Your can of Huberds is good to go for a LONG time.
What makes Huberds different from other leather care products on the market?
Which Huberd Shoe Grease product should I use on my leather?
There is no one right answer to this question. It depends on your type of leather, what condition it's in now, and how you are planning to use it going foward. Check out our 'Using Huberds' section for advice.
Where can I buy Huberd Shoe Grease products?
We ship product to both individual retailers and distributors across the United States and around the world. It would be hard to list them all here and honestly, we don't even know them all. You can order on Amazon but we encourage you to support your local stores. You can check out the 'Our Retailers' page to get started or walk into your nearest hardward, cobbler, or outdoor supply store and ask if they carry Huberds.
Why do some cans say 'Since 1929' and others say 'Since 1921'?
A.E. Huberd first started making and selling his product to lumberjacks in the Pacific Northwest in 1921. He didn't officiallys start Huberd Shoe Grease Company until 1929. Some older cans have the 1929 date, but we've chosen to align with the 1921 date and newer cans reflect that. While the company is important, its the grease that gets the job done!
