We’re taking things back to basics for our latest video, showing you how to apply the Crep Protect Spray on an adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Tail Light” for ultimate sneaker protection!
•One of the most asked questions that we get is how to apply the signature Crep Protect spray to achieve maximum protection - and we've got the full low down!
We’ll be showing you how to apply the Crep Protect Spray to the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Tail Light” for maximum protection from rain, stains and more. The method below can also be used for all footwear when it comes to using the Crep Protect Spray, from Jordans, Air Max, Super Stars & NMD's. Without further delay, let’s take a look at how to use Crep Protect Spray:
Using the Crep Protect Brush, found in our Crep Protect Cure Kit.
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.
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.
Give the can a good shake before spraying. Place the shoe on a flat surface, in a well-ventilated area. Hold the Can 10cm away from the shoe with the nozzle pointing in the direction of the shoe. Press down on the nozzle and spray the full outer of the shoe, applying a full coat of spray onto the sneaker . Starting from the top of the laces, move down towards the toe box and then make your way to the side. Still 10cm away, apply the Crep Protect Spray from the heel section back towards the toe box. Once you have done this around the entire sneaker, leave it to dry for 10-20 mins.
In order for the first coat of the Crep Protect Spray to take effect, you will need to leave the sneaker for 10 minutes.
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.
Let the Shoe Dry Once More
Following the same process as before, leave the sneaker to dry for 10 minutes in. After the shoe has been left to dry for 10 minutes, you will be able to put our Crep Protect Spray to the test.
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. Protection will last for up to 4 weeks if you follow the steps correctly!
