In warm weather, say greater than 100f/38C most paraffins will begin to soften, this is especially true if the material is black and composed to sunlight. The softened paraffin oozes out. In cold, weather, the paraffin solidifies, becoming stiff and brittle and as the material is flexed, it breaks and flies out in a kind of dust. Either open wholes in the leather proofing.Paraffin tents were widely used in America prior to the Civil War and there are many accounts of them either oozing or turning rigid and breaking like an ice sheet,
over and over again until the water proofing effect is lost.It’s also highly flammable, being essentially a candle wick.Given my experience with that, I imagine this will last about a month before you need to throw on another layer (it will be easier the second time, but it’s still some effort). Not too bad for the price, though eventually the wax will start accumulating dirt and you may not love the color of your canvas shoes after that. Then again, if you want to wear your canvas duds in the fall, they’ll stay nice longer with this than on their own.
