Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather
A water-based waterproofing cream for smooth leather footwear, Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather is a high performance cream that can be applied to wet or dry leather giving immediate protection. Once footwear has been thoroughly worn you may find it starts to soak up water. To correct this, add Durable Water Repellency with Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather. It’s safe and easy to apply and takes just minutes.
Nikwax Fabric and Leather Proof
Easy and quick to use, Nikwax Fabric and Leather Proof can be applied with a spray or sponge onto wet or dry boots. It provides a high Durable Water Repellency that develops on air drying. It leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres of fabric and leather allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and keeping feet dry.
All Nikwax products are safe for you to use and for the environment as they’re water-based and don’t contain harmful fluorocarbon chemicals or solvents.
