I used these on some suede winter shoes that came with a pretty worn down smoothish suede surface to begin with, so it is hard for me to say the textural effect that they will have on soft suede boots. My shoes were pretty dark to begin with, may be very slightly darker after using this spray. I didn't have the water beading up effect that a lot of people are describing, but I may have not put enough on. I plan to reapply as my feet got slightly wet in a snow storm yesterday. The product needs to be applied evenly otherwise your shoes will look different. Don't rush the application process, take your time and do a good job applying evenly and liberally and you will be satisfied with the product. I rushed the application, but still not disappointed at all.
This can be used to waterproof leather, but is designed for Nubuck and Suede products. You may get better results using Item #5976V
Nikwax Clean & Waterproof Fabric-Leather Footwear Kit, - or - Item #3097C Nikwax Liquid Waterpoofing Wax for Leather
