VelvetsAB - I do like Bahr's and Greenhawk, but you are right, they can be hit or miss. I tend to use them for my necessity items, or when they are having a sale. I am from the GTA, and there is a small tack shop near the barn I board at called A Bit Equine. They don't carry a lot in store, but almost anything can be ordered in, they have great and friendly service, so I do a lot of shopping there! I also like the EFO store, it's mostly apparel (casual and show) but their prices are pretty unbeatable. The other one I love, but don’t frequent very often because I find it pricey would be Running Fox. What about you, what are your favorites?
Farmpony84 – Good question, makes me wonder if the 'leather protecting sprays' you can get at shoe stores would help at all? I do think however, like the above posters mentioned, it is the boot polish that is transferring, rather than the leather itself bleeding.
