Would a full grain leather shoe (Merrell Chameleon Trek) benefit from the application of Nubuck & Suede Nikwax?

I suppose it's better than having no protection @ all. Sno-Seal or Biwell work best for full-grain leather. Unfortunately bc.com sell neither.

Hi Samuel!
You could use the Nubuck & Suede, but i'd save that product for your suede footwear. Nikwax makes several products designed specifically for full grain leather footwear. Nikwax Conditioner for Leather will waterproof and soften the leather. Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather (in either the Creme or Liquid formulations) will waterproof without softening. You can get any of these through our friends at backcountry.com. Thanks for your question! Stay dry!
