Footwear wax is a type of wax that is specifically designed for use on leather shoes and boots. It is typically made from a blend of natural waxes, such as carnauba wax and beeswax, and other ingredients that help to condition and protect the leather. When applied to the leather, footwear wax helps to nourish and moisturize it, making it softer and more pliable. It also helps to protect the leather from water, dirt, and other elements that can cause it to become damaged or discoloured. Some footwear waxes may also contain pigments or dyes that can be used to change the colour of the leather or to cover up blemishes. Footwear wax is typically applied using a soft cloth or brush and can be buffed to a shine after it has dried.
