Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather™ Liquid  Brown - 125ml 

The Nikwax Waterproofing wax is an easy to use liquid wax which can be used on smooth leather footwear, ideal for walking boots, motorcycle boots. work and sports  footwear. Waterproofs, maintains support and breathability.

Why support and breathability depend upon water repellency…

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, it softens and tanning agents are lost. Subsequently, the leather is stiffer when it dries and therefore prone to splitting. 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.

Regular maintenance of leather helps it work better for longer…

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 provides instant Durable Water Repellency (DWR), stopping leather from absorbing water and ‘wetting out’ while maintaining breathability. It replenishes tanning agents to maintain the support of leather footwear without over-softening. Additionally, Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather black restores colour and reduces scuff and abrasion marks.

How to use Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather

  2. Press sponge applicator to break seal. Apply to wet leather.
  3. After 2-3 minutes remove surplus with a cloth.
  4. Buff with a damp cloth to shine.

Note: May darken leather. Test on a hidden area first. Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather™ will convert nubuck to a smooth waxy finish.

Always allow footwear to dry naturally...

  • Keep footwear away from fires and radiators, drying too quickly can crack leather and cause bonded soles to peel.
