Topic - Nubuck boots destroyed by mud - any Nikwax ok?

OneLifeOneHeart - on 28 Jan 2013
Meindl Nubuck boots - this pair of boots which I bought just a few months ago were the perfect fit and accompanied my on my first ascents and outdoor explorations, but then I walked in mud one day, and when I tried to get rid of the mud bit a brush - (I had waited a couple of days before cleaning the boots) - the leather was white-ish.

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?
