If your boots are soaking up water then chances are their factory DWR finish has either been warn off or covered up. After a long period of time the DWR pores can get filled up with dirt and oil which clogs the pores and allows moisture to build up on top of it. The NIKWAX Waterproofing Wax for Leather not only restores your leather boots back to their beautiful old self but it also puts a DWR coating on the boots to protect them from the elements. It's simple, it's easy and hardly takes any time at all.
Simply wash your boots under some luke-warm water to remove all the dirt and oil, preferably with NIKWAX Footwear Cleaning Gel. Once all the dirt has been removed then you just apply the wax to the already wet leather and either working it in the the Sponge-tip or, since it is safe on skin and non toxic, you can rub it in with your fingers. Don't be scared to be generous. When your all done just remove excess wax with a damp cloth and allow to dry. From that point you can either buff or wipe off excess. Just like that your boots will be protected and last as long as you need them to. Restore your boots and save some money for something else!
