Both easy to apply by hand; spray or sponge on. Nikwax products are all environmentally friendly; they are water-based, PFC-free and have never used any harmful aerosols.


Why breathability depends upon water repellency…

Breathable waterproof footwear is most likely to get sweaty and wet inside when used in damp or wet conditions. If the outer leather 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. Through use, the outer surface of footwear will pick up contaminants, such as dirt, which attract water, masking the effect of any DWR coating.

Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel™ will remove contaminants and revitalize DWR. Durable Water Repellency will eventually wear off and need to be renewed with Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof™.

Breathable waterproof footwear is for active, outdoor people…

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, you will need good footwear.

Use Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel and Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof your waterproof footwear soaks up water…
