Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ 125 ml SPONGE-ON
WaterBased softening and waterproofing conditioner for smooth leather footwear.
Why comfort isn't just about dry feet...
Footwear needs to provide support, but also needs to be soft and flexible to maintain comfort. During the manufacturing process leather undergoes a procedure called tanning. This process adds tanning agents to maintain the structure of the leather, enabling it to keep its shape and provide support. Leather is also lubricated to increase suppleness and reduce friction between its fibres. When leather absorbs water, tanning agents and lubricants are lost, which causes the leather to become dry, stiff and prone to splitting. Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ will nourish leather with tanning agents and lubricants to keep it in top condition.
Leather requires regular maintenance to perform at its best...
Leather is hardwearing, breathable and provides a high level of support, making it an ideal material for footwear construction. If leather becomes wet its breathability will be reduced, leading to wet feet from condensation. Tanning agents and lubricants can be leeched out by water, causing leather to become dry, stiff and prone to splitting. Therefore, it is important to condition leather by replenishing tanning agents and lubricants, as well as maintaining Durable Water Repellency (DWR).
Use Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ on new or old boots...
If you have new smooth leather boots, Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ can be used to break them in without over-softening and also add Durable Water Repellency (DWR). It should also be used periodically to maintain your smooth leather footwear; nourishing the leather by replacing tanning agents and lubricants, stopping it from becoming dry and stiff.
Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ can also be used to restore suppleness to dried out leather and prolong the useful life of footwear.
Old fashioned conventional leather softening products can damage your boots...
Traditional leather conditioning products may be made with animal fats and therefore encourage microbial growth, which can affect the stitching on your boots and also encourage leather to rot! Additionally, these traditional leather conditioning products are easily over applied and this can damage the support of your footwear.
It is very difficult to over apply Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ because it is a WaterBased product and stops being absorbed once the footwear is fully treated.
How Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ prolongs the usable life of leather footwear...
The WaterBased formulation can be used on wet or dry leather. It is absorbed into the leather where it is needed most and will not over-soften. Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof smooth leather footwear. It conditions leather by replenishing tanning agents and lubricants, and can be used to either break in new leather or revitalise dried and cracked leather. Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ also adds Durable Water Repellency (DWR) to smooth leather, maintaining breathability. It is non-flammable, contains no harmful solvents and is free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and fluorocarbons.
Like all Nikwax products, Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ is safe to use...
Nikwax takes great care to minimise the effect of Nikwax products on the environment and on you, the consumer. Nikwax conditioning and waterproofing products are WaterBased, non-aerosol, non-flammable, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly. They contain no harmful solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and are completely free of fluorocarbons (which have been shown to be persistent in the environment and have been associated with serious health issues).
Apply Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ by hand...
Use Nikwax Conditioner for Leather™ to soften and waterproof new full grain leather footwear and restore suppleness to dried out leather.
Recommended for Gore-Tex® & SympaTex® footwear.

- Shake well before use. Press sponge applicator to break seal.
- Apply to wet leather. Ensure penetration of welts and seams.

To waterproof nubuck and suede leather footwear use Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof™.

Always allow footwear to dry naturally...
- Leave footwear to dry at room temperature.
- Paper can be stuffed into the toes to absorb excess moisture, this should be replaced when wet.
- Keep footwear away from fires and radiators, drying too quickly can crack leather and cause bonded soles to peel.
