Not only does this keep my favorite Minnetonka Suede shoes from warping in the frequent rain I get in Louisiana, but the Nubuck actually deepened the color of the suede and made it look even more gorgeous than before. Love this product! I used one bottle on two pairs of moccasins and still had some left over. Great buy and worth the extra protection on my favorite Fall shoes! Just don't forget to wipe off the excess you spray or the residue can discolor your suede in some spots (happened to a friend of mine).

Easy to Use and Effective
This a great product. Easy to use with only a very slight darkening of the nubuck. It penetrates the leather, rather than merely coating it, which makes it more effective, totally. Wiping with a damp cloth seems to aid in obtaining an even distribution with minimum waste of the solution.

I had never used this type of waterproofing before and was hesitant. I am so glad that I tried it because it is the best I have ever used! I applied it to leather and suede then wore the boots in Colorado snow and slush with wonderful results.

The best I've found
I searched high and low for a good waterproofer for my nubuck clogs--tried several kinds, including Dansko's spray-on type. None did much good, so I finally tried Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Waterproofing. It is excellent--not difficult to apply, and water beads up and rolls off my shoes now. As were other reviewers, I was concerned about dampening the nubuck before applying the Nikwax, but I shouldn't have worried. The shoes look nice, if a tiny bit darker--not noticable enough to dissuade me from using Nikwax in the future. This is a superior product, and worth every penny.

This product works well and is easy to apply. Make sure you wet the boots first to aid absorption.
