Breathable, waterproof footwear is most at risk of getting sweaty and wet on the inside when used in damp or wet conditions. If the outer fabric or leather absorbs water, the breathability of the footwear will be compromised. Therefore, you need to maintain the long-lasting water repellency (DWR) of your footwear to maintain comfort. This will eventually wear out and must be renewed with Nikwax Fabric & Leather Proof™.
Nikwax Fabric & Leather Proof™ is easy and quick to apply to wet boots with a sponge or spray. It offers a strong long-lasting water repellency (DWR), which develops during drying in the open air. Furthermore, it leaves a flexible, water-repellent layer on the individual fibers of fabric and leather. This allows water vapor to pass through, retains the breathability and ensures that your feet stay dry. Nikwax Fabric & Leather Proof ™ is specially designed and optimized for fabric footwear combined with leather.
