is a water repellent leather. This means
that it has been subjected to a waterproof
treatment during tanning. You can treat
this leather with a wide variety of different
products ie. sprays or waxes but remember
that many products penetrate the structure
of the leather and makes it softer.
this type of leather has the same characteristics
in the tanning process but as it has been
slightly buffed to obtain a velvety appearance
which will change if you wax it with a solid
wax. If you do wish to retain the velvety
finish use a waterproofing spray or a specific
product rather than wax.
type of leather should not be waxed but
treated with a silicon or liquid protectors
based waterproofing product.
best results are obtained by using a silicone
spray or liquid protectors on the outside
and inside of the boots or only outside
of Sympatex® membrane lined models.
