I remember back in college I used some sort of silicone spray on my timberlands back then and the stuff really didn't work that well. Although that was 30yrs ago, so I imagine newer stuff must have gotten better.

I think it "fails" where it can't work on shoes (lace holes, mesh panels, etc.) but otherwise holds up well.

Honestly I've got no idea what '"Nubuck" is.

I always thought timberlands were waterproof myself. But I asked a salesperson at the store and his reply was they were water resistant and not water proof. Being that my timberlands are several years old, I really don't think they even repel water that well anymore. thus the question of what I can use. Nubuck is the leather they use on timberlands, sort of like short fiber suede.
Like I said you can brush on silicone waterproofing or use NikWax to prevent the leather soaking up any water. But which model Timberlands do you have? The classic nubuck 6" boots are listed as waterproof at the Timberland site.
