How to use:

Nikwax Footwear Refresh not only provides high-powered deodorising, it also cleans away the build-up of dirt and body oils, reducing the growth of bacteria which cause odour, and rot materials and stitching.

Why does footwear get so smelly?

Footwear can become smelly due to the combination of sweat and bacterial growth. This is a particular problem for active footwear, as sweat accumulates in shoes providing a breeding ground for bacteria, which break down sweat and skin cells, resulting in unpleasant odours.

Why choose Nikwax Footwear Refresh?

Unlike traditional footwear fresheners, Nikwax Footwear Refresh doesn’t just mask odours. It treats the cause by thoroughly cleaning away the odours and removing the bacteria responsible.

Not only will your footwear smell fresher for longer, it will also last longer as the bacteria doesn’t get a chance to eat away at the material and stitching.
