“When applying this category of product (water base) over a different protective shoe/boot product already on a pair of high quality shoes that is silicone and non-water base, will Nikwax adhere or roll off?||Also, with silicone-treated leather, can this product function or will it fail to protect it?||These questions are based on early Nikwax experience with as-new and new boots, where nearly a decade ago the product failed to perform and several alternative products are no longer marketed since they were of a petroleum base. Yet they worked excellently. ||So, before purchasing water-base outdoor leather protective products this is the glitch when manufacture-treated leather or previously non-water-base treated footwear is exposed to Nikwax.||While the brand has an OK reputation, several now-extinct products were left behind that in my experience were far superior for leather. Sad what a decade of 'progress' can do to degrade market value of quality footwear with low quality coatings.”
