Waterproofer for Fabric & Leather - NIKWAX is water based, easy to use and perfect for all fabric and leather footwear
Fabric & Leather Waterproofer comes in when our waterproof shoes start letting water in and gives them back their DWR finish!
The external DWR (Durable Water Repellant) treatment of the outdoor shoes guarantees their waterproofing, but unfortunately it tends to wear off with wear of the garment.
When this happens, the shoe begins to let water through, resulting in a constant dampness and losing up to 70% of its breathability.
It revitalizes the DWR of the garments by preventing water absorption and thus allows the breathability of technical fabrics such as shells and jackets to be kept intact.
Nikwax Waterproofing for Fabric & Leather™ is a safe product to use on waterproof breathable combination footwear. It is completely non-flammable, contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is fluorocarbon free.
This waterproofer has been specifically designed and optimized for combination textile and leather footwear, providing Durable Water Repellency (DWR), whilst maintaining breathability.
No need to wait for footwear to dry from washing before applying.
How to use Nikwax™ Fabric & Leather Waterproofer on our shoes:
PLEASE NOTE: Before applying the spray, carefully wash the shoe with suitable products
- Wipe dirt off the footwear with a damp cloth.
- Shake before using.
- Press the applicator on the shoe to unlock the seal.
- Apply liberally to wet footwear; with the spray (at a distance of 5cm) or with the sponge applicator.
- After 2 minutes, remove excess product with a damp cloth and allow to dry before use.
- Leave the footwear to dry at room temperature.
- The front of the shoe can be filled with paper to absorb excess moisture. Replace paper when wet.
- Keep footwear away from fire and radiators. If they dry too quickly the leather can crack and can cause the bound soles to peel.
Note: Light colored/colored fabrics/leather may darken after treatment. Test the treatment on an inconspicuous area of the shoe before proceeding.
