I’ve always been reluctant to use these type products as every time I purchase shoes (and we’re not talking cheap shoes), they try to sell you some spray-on protection or other.
Then I purchased some ‘vans’, which are suede and look very comfortable and casual. A friend had some and they recently got caught in heavy rain, and afterwards they looked dreadful, so I decided to try waterproofing them. I’ve never liked the idea of the sprays due to past experience when a spray used many years ago slightly changed the colour of the shoes they were applied to.
Having read reviews on so many different types, I plumped for this one, and I have to say, it is so impressive, I’m ordering more. I’ve also recommended it to friends who asked how my ‘van’s have looked so new and dry after being caught in a heavy downpour.
Yes, it does seem a bit much having to apply three coats to the shoes, which means a can of spray doesn’t go that far, but that said, it does work, and it doesn’t change the colour of the shoes.
Impressive, effective and let’s one go about one’s business with one less worry should you be unfortunate enough to get caught in the rain.
