@RayM Thanks for reaching out!

We recommend using Nikwax Fabric & Leather Waterproofing Spray for Footwear to re-apply the durable water repellant (DWR) to your pair of shoes. Also, check out this Expert Advice article How to Waterproof Hiking Boots that walks you through all the steps.

Hope this helps!
