Product Information:

Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel is a safe product to use on breathable waterproof footwear as it does not leave water attracting (hydrophilic) residues, which lead to fabric and leather absorbing water and ‘wetting out’. Complete with an easy-to-use brush applicator, Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel™ is simple to apply, and removes water absorbent dirt and stains picked up during use; this revitalises the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) and causes water to bead on the outer surface.

Regular cleaning with Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel™ will revitalize existing DWR and revive the breathability of your footwear, keeping your feet dry and comfortable.

Nikwax Fabric & Leather Proof™ protects and provides highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR) which develops on air drying. It leaves a flexible water-repellent treatment on individual fibres of fabric and leather. This allows moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and keeping your feet dry. Nikwax Fabric & Leather Proof™ has been specifically designed and optimised for fabric and leather combination footwear.
