Clean and restore all of your outdoor footwear with Nikwax Product News

Why your outdoor boots and shoes need Nikwax:

Your outdoor boots and shoes go through the mill, particularly when you wear them in the mud and rain. Over time, you may notice them starting to soak in water, or any leather on them starting to stiffen. That's because once dirty, soaked in water stops sweat from escaping so your feet feel wet and uncomfortable, and your boots will wear quicker than they should. Nikwax has a range of products to clean, restore and maintain all of your outdoor boots and shoes.

Step three:

Next, apply Nikwax Waterproofing Fabric and Leather Proof or Waterproof Wax for Leather depending on whether your boots are made of leather only or are part fabric as well. Again, give the bottle a quick shake. Either remove the cap or use the sponge applicator. Apply the product all over the surface of the boot paying attention to the seams. Wipe or polish off any excess product. Your boots will be immediately waterproof and ready to enjoy wearing again.
