Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather

Water based waterproofing cream for smooth leather footwear
Waterproofing cream that can be used on both wet or dry leather and once applied will provides immediate water repellent protection.  Adds water repellency, reduces water absorption and maintains breathability.

The comfort of waterproof footwear is dependent on it supporting feet and being breathable. The structure of leather and therefore the level of support it provides is maintained by tanning agents. When leather absorbs water, tanning agents are lost, which causes leather to stiffen. Also, when leather gets wet the breathability of footwear is impaired, giving you damp feet. Therefore, it’s essential that the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) of your footwear is maintained.
Eventually DWR will wear off and need to be renewed with Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather.

Anyone who is active outside in damp or wet conditions will benefit from breathable waterproof footwear. Whether you’re a mountaineer or dog walker, or you work outside as a farmer or surveyor, you will need good footwear.
