Why support and breathability depend upon water repellency…

The comfort of waterproof footwear is dependent on it supporting feet and being breathable. The structure of leather and therefore the level of support it provides is maintained by tanning agents.

When leather absorbs water, it softens and tanning agents are lost. Subsequently, the leather is stiffer when it dries and therefore prone to splitting. Also, when leather gets wet the breathability of footwear is impaired, giving you damp feet.

Therefore, it’s essential that the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) of your footwear is maintained. Eventually DWR will wear off and need to be renewed with Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather.

Regular maintenance of leather helps it work better for longer…

Leather is hardwearing, breathable and provides a high level of support, making it an ideal material for footwear construction. During leather production, tanning agents are added to maintain the structure of leather and prevent microbial growth. If leather becomes wet its breathability will be reduced, leading to wet feet from condensation. Also, when leather absorbs water, tanning agents are lost. Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather provides instant Durable Water Repellency (DWR), stopping leather from absorbing water and ‘wetting out’ while maintaining breathability. It replenishes tanning agents to maintain the support of leather footwear without over-softening. Additionally, Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather black restores colour and reduces scuff and abrasion marks.
