What You Need to Rehab Your Hiking Boots for Spring Is Only $12

With spring around the corner, you’ll want to get your hiking boots in good form.


It’s nearly that time of year when your ski boots will trade places in the depths of your closet with the leather hiking boots that you laid down there months ago. After so long a time, those boots might be neglected; maybe they’re a bit dry, perhaps they’re still caked in some late autumn mud. This light mistreatment can have consequences over time — the leather might become stiff, cracked or unwearable — but is easily remedied with Nikwax boot treatment solutions, a twin-pack of which is all of $12 right now at Backcountry.

Caring for leather hiking boots is remarkably easy. All you need to do is wash them, condition the leather and bolster its waterproof coating (read our in-depth guide on how to do this here). This bundle includes Nikwax’s Footwear Cleaning Gel, which you should use to take care of that first step, as well as its Fabric and Leather Proof solution, which will revitalize water repellency not just in leather boots but those made of canvas or synthetic materials also.
