A new saddle should be treated with Brooks Proofide Leather Dressing to help assist the "breaking-in" process. Proofide also helps to keep the leather supple as it is carefully formulated from special ingredients to condition, preserve, and shower proofs your saddle. Brooks Proofide is the only substance that should be used to take care of your saddle.
