WaterBased hight performance waterproofing liquid for smooth leather footwear. It can be applied to wet or dry leather. Non-Softening.
Available in: black, brown and neutral.
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. Leather is hardwearing, breathable and provides a high level of support, making it an ideal material for footwear construction. During leather production, tanning agents are added to maintain the structure of leather and prevent microbial growth. If leather becomes wet its breathability will be reduced, leading to wet feet from condensation. Also, when leather absorbs water, tanning agents are lost.
Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather has been specifically designed and optimised for smooth leather footwear, providing instant Durable Water Repellency (DWR), stopping leather from absorbing water and ‘wetting out’ while maintaining breathability. It also replenishes tanning agents to maintain the support of leather footwear without over-softening. You don’t need to wait for your footwear to dry before application, it can be used on either wet or dry leather.
Additionally, Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather black restores colour and reduces scuff and abrasion marks. It has been specifically designed and optimised for black smooth leather footwear.
* 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.
How to use Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather:
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 Waterproofing Wax for Leather:
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.
Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather 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.
* test on a hidden area first. Waterproofing Wax for Leather will convert nubuck to a smooth waxy finish.
Nikwax Product Ethics:
Nikwax takes great care to minimise the effect of Nikwax waterproofing products on the environment and on you, the consumer.
Smooth Leather Care:
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.
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.

Great product--used it on my goat leather gloves--they were natural color and the color change was minimal and actually made them look better. Keeps out water like a charm. Now I need to waterproof the cloth parts of the gloves. Would definitely buy again. This is a good amount by the way--for glove treatment should last me a few years.
