This review is from: Nikwax Care Kit For Combination Footwear Footwear Cleaning/Proofing (Shoes)
My Saloman boots have served me well over hundreds of miles for the last 4 years but I decided that, before setting off on this year's big trip, I would treat them to a good clean and reproof. What a mistake! The cleaner worked fine (though washing up liquid might have also done the job) but the reproofer was hopeless. For a start, the 'press cap to break seal' just doesn't work - in the end my son-in-law resorted to piercing the sponge with a small penknife to release the contents. I followed the instructions to the letter, applying to damp boots, allowing to dry naturally etc and felt quite pleased with myself, set off feeling fully protected from the elements. It was lucky we had a dry week because after only 10 minutes of walking through wet grass my boots, socks and feet were soaked through. I feel as though all I have done is remove the last traces of waterproofing from my boots and replace with nothing. I'm very disappointed.
