Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof - 125ml Sponge-On Bottle

Waterproofs, maintains breathability, support and texture of nubuck and suede footwear.

Anyone who is active outside in damp or wet conditions will benefit from breathable waterproof footwear. Whether you’re a mountaineer, cyclist, dog walker, or you work outside as a farmer or surveyor, you will need good waterproof footwear to keep you dry. When you’re active and wearing footwear, your socks draw moisture away from your feet, keeping them dry. However, if your footwear absorbs water and ‘wets out’ its breathability will be reduced. Moisture vapour will not be able to escape through the material, so your feet will feel clammy and wet.

Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof has been specifically designed and optimised for nubuck and suede footwear, providing Durable Water Repellency (DWR), which prevents water absorption, whilst maintaining breathability, keeping your feet dry and comfortable. It provides maximum waterproofing with minimal change to look and feel of nylon and leather footwear. You don’t need to wait for your footwear to dry before application.

* Never use liquid detergents or fabric softeners. Wash Nubuck & Suede footwear in Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel non-detergent soap. Detergents can leave water-attractive residues that will not rinse out.


  • Provides maximum waterproofing with little or no change to appearance or texture of nubuck or suede
  • Long-lasting waterproofing that conditions without softening 
  • Water-based formulation is preferentially drawn to areas that need it most 
  • Breathable treatment is safe to use on footwear with waterproof breathable linings and waterproof leathers

  • Sponge applicator
  • Product of choice of professional Outdoor trainers
  • 125ml / 4.2oz

How to use Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof:

Your footwear could be soaking up water just because they are dirty. First, try cleaning them with Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel, and if they are fairly new, or recently re-waterproofed with Nikwax Fabric & Leather Proof, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) will be revitalised just from cleaning.

Once footwear have been thoroughly used, you will need to add DWR using Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof:

  • Hand Wash

For best results always clean footwear first with Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel. No need to dry footwear before waterproofing. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions.

  1. Brush off dirt with Nikwax Suede Brush or a damp cloth and clean using Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel.
  2. Shake well before use. Press sponge applicator to break seal.
  3. Apply generously to wet footwear; Spray-On (from a distance of 5cm / 2in ) or Sponge-On.*
  4. After 2 minutes, remove surplus with a cloth and allow to dry before use.
  5. Always allow footwear to dry naturally:
  • Leave footwear to dry at room temperature. 
  • Paper can be stuffed into the toes to absorb excess moisture, this should be replaced when wet.
  • Keep footwear away from fires and radiators, drying too quickly can crack leather and cause bonded soles to peel.

Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres of fabric and leather. This allows moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and keeping your feet dry.
To maintain waterproofing always clean with Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel. Do not use detergents.

* Light/coloured nubuck or suede may darken after treatment. Test on a hidden area first.

Nikwax Product Ethics:

Nikwax takes great care to minimise the effect of Nikwax waterproofing products on the environment and on you, the consumer.

  • Nikwax waterproofing products are WaterBased, Non-aerosol, Non-flammable, Non-hazardous, and Environmentally Friendly.
  • Zero PFC - Completely free of fluorocarbons (which have been shown to be persistent in the environment and have been associated with serious health issues).
  • Nikwax waterproofing products contain no harmful solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOCs)

Nubuck & Suede Care:

Breathable waterproof footwear is most likely to get sweaty and wet inside when used in damp or wet conditions. If the outer nubuck or suede absorbs water, the breathability of the footwear will be reduced.

Therefore, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) of your footwear must be maintained to ensure comfort. It will eventually wear off and need to be renewed with Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof

Using the right cleaning product is as important as using the right waterproofing product. Conventional detergents leave behind a thin water-absorbent film on materials, which masks their Durable Water Repellency (DWR). Always clean your waterproof footwear with Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel. Remember that dirt itself works against DWR, so regular cleaning will enhance performance.
