Sneakerheads all over the world want to know how to protect their kicks. That’s why we’ve taken a back to basics approach for our latest video.
We’ll be showing you how to apply the Crep Protect Spray to the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Tail Light”. As one of the latest Yeezy 350 V2s to release, we thought that this was a match made in heaven. Of course, this method applies for all footwear that you are applying the Crep Protect Spray too, whether it’s Jordans or Air Max. Without further delay, let’s take a look at how to use Crep Protect Spray.
Step One – Brush Excess Dirt
Now, before applying the spray to your footwear it’s important to clean the shoe. This doesn’t need to be a full deep clean, but you will need to remove any excess dirt that can be seen on the shoe. Using the Crep Protect Brush, gently brush along the upper of the shoe in a circular motion moving towards the midsole. Repeat this step a few times to ensure that no dirt has been left on the shoe before you start the spray application.
Step Two – Shake the Crep Protect Spray
As with any aerosol, shaking the can is important. The reason for this is that shaking mixes all of the products together, meaning that the repellant can begin to form inside the can. Shaking the Crep Protect Spray ensures that all of the elements come together in order to create an effective barrier against rain and stains. If you don’t shake your Crep Protect Spray, you won’t get the best out of the product.
Step Three – Applying the First Coat
Now that you have brushed the dirt away and shook the can, you can start to apply the spray. Holding the Crep Protect Spray 20cm from the shoe, press down on the nozzle and coat the sneaker using a continuous motion. Starting from the top of the laces, move down towards the toe box and then make your way to the side. Still 20cm away, apply the Crep Protect Spray from the heel section back towards the toe box. Once you have done this around the entire sneaker you can leave it.
Step Four – Letting the Shoe Dry
In order for the first coat of the Crep Protect Spray to take effect, you will need to leave the sneaker for 10 minutes in direct sunlight. If you can’t leave the shoes in sunlight, leaving them in a room temperature room for 10 minutes will be fine.
Step Five – Applying the Second Coat
Once you have left the sneakers to dry for 10 minutes, you can begin to apply the second coat of Crep Protect Spray. Following the same process that we outlined in Step Three, press down on the spray from 20cm away and start at the top of the laces, moving towards the toe box. After you have done this, turn the sneaker around and spray from the heel up towards the toe box again.
Step Six – Let the Shoe Dry Once More
Following the same process as before, leave the sneaker to dry for 10 minutes in direct sunlight or in a room temperature room. After the shoe has been left to dry for 10 minutes, you will be able to put our Crep Protect Spray to the test.
Step Seven – Put the Crep Protect Spray to the Test
After your sneakers are all dried off and you’ve applied two coats, you can see the Crep Protect Spray in action. Our super-hydrophobic spray creates an invisible coating which repels liquids and repels stains. The nanotechnology ensures that water rolls off the fabric without affecting the material. The spray should last for approximately two weeks if you follow the steps correctly!
Here we’ll explain just how the Crep Protect Spray works in a few simple steps:
- Step One – Brush excess dirt away before applying the spray
- Step Two – Shake the Crep Protect Spray for a few seconds to make sure that the elements have all combined
- Step Three – Holding the Crep Protect Spray 20cm away from the shoe, begin applying the spray starting from the laces to the toe box. Then work your way around from the heel to the toe box again going around the sides of the shoe.
- Step Four – Let the spray set for 10 minutes, leaving them in direct sunlight or inside at room temperature
- Step Five – Repeat Step Three, holding the can 20cm from the shoe and working your way from the laces to the toe box then the sides back to the toe box
- Step Six – Leave the shoe for a further 10 minutes in direct sunlight or inside at room temperature
- Step Seven – Your kicks are ready!
