Nikwax footwear aftercare products have been at the heart of Nikwax, since its beginnings in 1977. The first ever Nikwax product produced was a waterproofing wax created specifically for leather mountain boots, a product that we still proudly produce today. Over the years we have built a reputation as leaders in innovative PFC-Free clothing and gear systems, creating outstanding materials and aftercare for outdoor explorers, keeping them safe and dry in wild weather. Nikwax is a trusted and much loved brand; with values steeped in innovation and care for our environment and a reputation for high performance products.

We are proud to work closely and in partnership with other brands in the Outdoor industry who share our values. Below are some quotes we have gathered from leading footwear brands that Nikwax partners with:

"We have worked with Nikwax from day one. They are a company which shares the same values as we do in terms of the environment and our impact on it. We also appreciate the fact Nikwax is water-based which makes it very easy to use. The footwear cleaning, conditioning and proofing are the best in the world and that is why we promote Nikwax
to all of our new customers and established users."

Keen  © Nikwax
"KEEN is a leader in the footwear industry having moved several seasons ago to choosing safe, effective PFC-free Durable Water Repellent alternatives to repel water and dirt from the uppers of our shoes and sandals. Waterproofing is not necessary at first, however after some wear, we recommend treating your shoes with an environmentally safe waterproofing spray like Nikwax in order to keep the boot protected and stain-free. KEEN, like Nikwax, take responsibility for the sustainability of our products very seriously, sharing a brand synergy to ensure outdoor products are consciously created to minimise impact on the environment and can be renewed and long lasting."

Merrell  © Nikwax
"At Merrell we choose to work with Nikwax, as the global #1 outdoor footwear brand wants to work with the number one in footwear aftercare. Caring for our shoes ensures they will continue to perform as well as they did fresh out the box. Plus, Nikwax's environmental approach, carbon offset and full recyclable packaging is something the whole industry can aspire to!"

Salomon  © Nikwax
"Salomon are proud to build products using the finest materials, and so recommend regular product care and protection. To prevent natural aging of leather Salomon recommends treating all leather products with a cream or water based wax treatment such as Nikwax. Carl, one of our outdoor ambassadors praises Nikwax as he hasn't been let down by the products and likes that they come in larger size bottles to save stocking up. Carl really knows how to put his equipment to the test and is glad he uses Nikwax to protect his favourite items."
