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. During use, dirt will adhere to the outside of footwear, which attracts water and blocks the effect of a DWR coating. Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel™ removes dirt and also repairs the DWR.
Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel™ is a highly effective cleaning agent that is specially designed and optimized for breathable, waterproof footwear. The Cleaning Gel™ is a safe product for use on breathable, waterproof footwear as it does not leave residues that attract water (hydrophilic residues) and cause fabric and leather to absorb water and eventually become soaked. Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel™ removes dirt and stains that absorb water during use. This restores the long-lasting water repellency (DWR) and ensures that water beads off from the outside.
Regular cleaning with Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel™ will restore the existing DWR and the breathability of your footwear, keeping your feet dry and your comfort.
Note: First check the colour fastness by testing in an inconspicuous place.
