Formulated without wax in order to preserve the look (color & texture) of leather and fabric footwear, instead it contains additives that improve the bond between the waterproofing polymers and the synthetic (cordura, nylon or polyester) fabric fibers. It provides maximum waterproofing with minimum change to the appearance and texture of fabric and leather combination footwear. The application is preferentially drawn to areas that need it most since those are the areas that soak up the most water. May slightly darken light colored leathers, test on hidden area first. Sponge Applicator.
