Crep Protect Shoe Spray Experiment
Happy weekend! The sun is out in New York today though it is a little chilly. I decided to write a blog post on this Crep Protect shoe spray I bought along with my white Adidas Originals Tubular Radial in the beginning the month.
White shoes have been a hit this season. Just the beginning of the month, the viral video of “Damn! Daniel!” caught people’s attention on white Vans. The trend seems to have also been set by Adidas, in their Original Stan Smith and the recent Original NMD Runner. I found this pair of Adidas Originals Tubular Radial at Foot Locker. Spent a whole day in SoHo, I found more stylish shoes at Opening Ceremony than this pair, but they were much more expensive. This pair of Adidas costs $105.00. Classic Adidas approach, this pair of high runners are made of synthetic material, both chic for daywear and sports wear. I am not much of a sports person except when I jog outdoor sometimes, but once they are worn out, I will consider wearing them for sports. The synthetic runners are highly stretchable, enabling a more drastic movement and action. The 1 inch heels are a little high, so you feel significantly elevated as you put them on.
I bought along with my shoes this Crep Protect shoe spray that was said to be able protect my shoes from rain and stain. Once I got home, I cleaned my shoes with a wet paper towel to clear any dust or stain. Next, I shook the bottle and began spraying 20 centimeters from the shoes. I sprayed quite a lot from different angles to make sure every corner of my shoes is fully protected. Next, give the pair of shoes a sunbath for 10 minutes, and repeat the spraying process again. Lastly, give it a last sunbath and your shoes are now stain and rain resistant!
I have since been wearing these Adidas for a month, and there is not one drop of rain and stain on my shoes. When water and stain drop on my shoes, they bounce off like the drop of water on lily pads. Sometimes you see dust or dirt on the shoes, but are not absorbed into the shoes and can be wiped away with a wet paper towel. I was amazed by how thorough this product is on protecting my white shoes!
