It did darken the leather a bit but covered up some of the scuffs as a result.

I hike in the winter, dog sled, sled, build igloos, and generally spend a lot of time with my boots in wet snow and mud.

I use it on my hiking boots, as well as my leather slip on shoes (LL bean style) to make them waterproof.

I have tried many waxes and polishes in the past and I've always been disappointed with the results. This stuff really works. I have a pair of ecco walking shoes that have been around the world with me AND LOOK LIKE IT. After a good cleaning, while still damp, I applied the Nikwax. Then I cleaned them again with a damp detailing cloth, applied the Nikwax again, then polished them. While they don't look new (you can't undo scuffs!) they look good. The color is perfect again. And scuffs are like laugh lines--they show character. I only wish I'd thought to take before-and-after photos.

Color Name: BrownSize Name: 4.2-Ounce Verified Purchase
I would have rated this item with five stars if it was not for two detracting items. First, is the girly man applicator which consists of an open cell foam on the top of the bottle. I am used to footwear waterproofing contained in a bottle and applied with a fabric ball attached by a wire to the bottle cap which allows liberal application, especially in the area were the shoe upper attaches to the sole. Applying the Nikwax product with its foam applicator doesn't allow that feeling of confidence that you have filled in this area sufficiently. In addition, after doing one pair of work boots, the edge of the applicator was noticeably frayed that I am concerned it will not last until all the product is used.

Second is, in my opinion, the fact that the product contains brown dye. When I ordered this product, I did not recall an offer of a clear product. When I am waterproofing my work boots and hunting boots, I am not looking to make a fashion statement. This dye, even though the label contains a warning to protect the area where the user is applying the product, ended up on my khaki shorts where the boots were resting when I applied the product. Clear products such as SnoSeal or a Cabelas waterproofer were more forgiving of my sloppy application.

Having listed the negatives, my experience with the waterproofing capability of the product was a very positive one. I applied it to my leather, Gortex, steeltoe work boots this weekend and after wearing them in rain and heavy morning dew for three days, my socks were not even damp when I took the boots off at night. And it didn't appear to have been worn off, still sticky, with use. Other waterpoofers used on the same boots did not have the same results.
I am impressed. I would recommend the product. Just be careful when applying it.

I am an avid backpacker and use single-piece leather hiking boots - my trips generally consist of thick bushwacking, crossing streams, rivers and marsh areas, as well as post-holing into deep snow on occasion. My boots need to withstand a lot of water contact/inundation.

I have used Nikwax products to waterproof my boots in the past (different version bottle, with brush applicator). This version is far superior! Having the bottle itself act as an applicator (by pushing down, you release the wax) and brush makes waterproofing anything a no-brainer and it takes far less time.

These guys are essentially the ultimate go-to for leather treatment supplies...hasn't failed me yet. Haven't figured out how many treatments' worth of wax there is in each bottle, but I know I had a small bottle of it for at least a year. If you have leather (it works with nu-buck as well) that needs waterproofing, get this.

Enough said.

Bought this to use on a new pair of hiking boots and seemed to work very well. Protects the leather and makes them easier to clean. I also used it on some leather chucka boots that were getting a bit worn, and it did a great job of softening and conditioning the leather.

I'm probably more demanding of my footwear than most. I hike in the winter, dog sled, sled, build igloos, and generally spend a lot of time with my boots in wet snow and mud.

I've tried silicone sprays and treatments - useless except for keeping mud and salt stains off your dress shoes. I was using SnoSeal and Edelrid DrySkin or Mink Oil but have found this stuff to be a lot better, easier to apply and more durable.

I use Nikwax aqueous wax on my dress shoes, you can get a decent shine on top of the AW.

I've also used it on gloves (Grandoe Sympatex) with success. You can apply to wet leather which makes it very handy since applying mink oil or the other heavy grease treatments to wet leather is useless. Since this stuff is water based it soaks in to where the leather is more porous and leaky.

Why might you need to use aqueous wax on goretex shoes or gloves? Because the outer leather can get waterlogged, even if your toes and fingers stay dry. Waterlogged leather is slippery - not good for gloves. Aqueous wax gives a tacky feel.

Good stuff.

Used this product to return my well scuffed Danner's to their original glory. Directions on bottle make application easy. I would recommend this product to anyone wishing to polish boots with waterproof or gortex liners.

I've been using nikwax leather conditioner and aqueous leather waxes for a decade; we are very pleased. We wear boots quite a bit around here and all our boots remain in excellent condition through a regimen of cleaning and nikwaxing. I don't use the brown or black wax copiously, just a little. However, the clear wax, the aqueous paste and the leather conditioner... these we use liberally. We will remain nikwax users for the foreseeable future.

PS: their wash-in and spray-on TX-Direct are also excellent, and Tech Wash
