Anyone seen this? Just saw an advert on some obscure Sky channel and googled it.
If its anything like the videos its very hydrophobic and seems to be only £10.

Didnt this get brought up before, remember someone saying it makes them completely unbreathable, so sweaty and smelly as fuck shoes. If so still be alright for winter I guess

The never wet super hydrophobic videos have been out for years, but never knew the product was out… can imagine it holding in moisture, probably best to just use it around the midsole and front, leaving all the breathable holes alone.

What a load of shite.

There's a shitload of similar, cheaper products you can get on eBay for next to nothing.

Avoid.

Don't know about Crep Protect but "Always Dry" seemed to do the trick on my FBT's.

I've got some, cant say I"ve experienced any sweaty feet problems mentioned earlier.

Had some on my air max 1 milanos today and had the misfortune of being shat on by a seagull.

Got a fair splash on the front at the bottom of the laces. Gave them a rinse under a tap and it literally ran off.

good product, cant really fault it…. other than Joey Essex endorsement….

Tried it on any footwear which aren't as breathable as FBT's?

I've done my FUKnits - but they're more breathable than FBTs.

According to their product blurb - it just coats the threads with the super hydrophobic stuff - so in short the material remains breathable.

I don't have particularly sweaty feet but I can't say I've noticed any change.

Can use it on garms too, if you feel so inclined.

Where are people buying this stuff? some on ebay but like £20 delivery because it's classed as dangerous goods.

Has anyone used this on any of their better suede shoes? Got given a can for xmas, tempted to have a crack on my Red Wings but concerned if it'll have any lasting defects on softer suedes. Any insight appreciated.
