Work boots are often forgotten pieces of every day equipment. I know mine are. So when Nikwax sent me Footwear Cleaning Gel, Conditioner for Leather and Fabric & Leather Proof I thought maybe my hiking/long days at a show boots could use the tlc.
Each product has a simple to follow list of steps on how to use it, so first things first, I sprayed off the large pieces of horse poo. Then using the super convenient sponge applicator rubbed the cleaning gel all over. It got nice and foamy which always makes me feel like it's working. Then I rinsed the suds off to reveal a much cleaner boot!
I then toweled off the excess water and started applying the conditioner. Using the same attached sponge applicator I rubbed the wax like substance all over. I let this fully soak in before moving on to the final step, waterproofing. The proof spray was a very easy step: spray liberally all over the boot. Once that dried I played around to see the difference, and now the water just rolls right off my boots! I hadn't thought much about taking the time to care for these shoes because they are great heavy duty boots but man do they look better! They even feel much softer to the touch.
It's always important to take care of your things to make them last longer, and with these Nikwax products I feel like doing that will be a breeze!
Check that out! What a difference! And look at those water droplets just beading off.
