The processes that Nubuck, suede and rough-out leathers go through mean that they no longer have their own naturally occurring protective barrier for water resistance. To keep water out, you’ll find that you need to use something like this Waterproofing Spray regularly to protect them.
Danner’s Nubuck and Suede Waterproofing Spray won’t cause the material to darken in colour, and is breathable - meaning it can block water from the outside whilst letting moisture and vapour escape from the inside. A nice feature for any boot, but particularly important for any Gore-Tex styles where you want to benefit from that materials breathable properties.
For a boot with a full grain leather (such as Danner’s Mountain Light boots) instead of this spray we’d recommend using their Boot Dressing.

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
Charles Danner opened the doors of Danner Shoe Mfg. Company in the old logging town of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, with twelve employees to build affordable, handcrafted work boots. In the 1960’s they recognised the cultural shift towards activities in the outdoors like hiking, backpacking and mountain climbing becoming America’s only domestic manufacturer of walking boots.
Building on nearly a century of traditions and high standards of quality originally instilled by their founder, Danner continue to design and manufacture a complete line of hiking, hunting, uniform, work and lifestyle boots in their world-class factory in Portland, Oregon, USA.
