/ Nubuck boots destroyed by mud - any Nikwax ok?
I went to an outdoor shop and the person there said that the "upper layer" (?!) of the leather had been scraped away and I now needed to reproof them or so.
He seemed in a hurry when he gave me a tube of Nikwax soft leather cream, but after reading online, I read that there is also a Nikwax Nubuck cream.
Would it be dangerous if I started applying the one I bought?
Just wax the hell out of them with G-wax, they'll look better for it and last well.

Any idea how long it would be before the glue melts?
I only ask as I'm worried that my Nepal Extreme's may be at risk.
My boots are 16 years old and have not been waxed for about 10 years. And when I go for a walk in them, it can be months before I even think about putting them into a stream let alone under a tap to wash any mud off.
Does it matter what sort of glue it is? I mean, they make glue out of horses' hooves don't they (well the bits that don't go into the burgers anyway). Do horses hooves dissolve or fall off if they go in a field?
