Step 1:

Remove laces. Eliminate dirt and trail hardened grime with ReviveX® Boot Cleaner and air dry.


Step 2:

Apply ReviveX® Nubuck, Suede and Fabric Water Repellent to clean, dry footwear. Liberally treat the tops and sides of the toe area, especially where the boot bends.


For Heavy-Duty or Rough-Out Leather Boots

To prepare footwear for the wettest, most abrasive situations such as step kicking in snow, ice climbing or mixed climbing, use a heavy duty gel waterproofing formula such as ReviveX® Leather Gel. Apply gel to a clean cloth, then buff into the leather.



Gel water repellent treatments will darken leather, giving footwear a rich, traditional outdoor look. Many climbers like this darker look. Make sure you like it before you apply ReviveX Leather Gel.
