What are some of the most annoying things out there that can happen to a person? You drive through a car wash and come out with a bright and shiny vehicle only to have a dumb bird take a crap right on the hood within minutes of having it cleaned. When you try stab that Capri Sun container only to have the straw break without the seal being opened. What about when you have to go the restroom right after stepping out of the shower? Yeah, that never happens to us either. What about when you buy a bunch of steak and things to grill only to find out that you’ve run out of propane? They’re all pretty terrible but one of the worst is when you buy a brand new pair of kicks (that’s shoes for some of you) and walking outside only to have mud kicked up on them or to go out to a restaurant and have a drink spilled on them.
Nobody wants to see a good pair of shoes ruined without some good miles being put on them before that happens. Unfortunately, our fortune teller hasn’t been right in years and can’t predict the moments to avoid for those shoes to stay fresh. There is now a product available only in the UK but will likely make its way over to the states shortly called Crep Protect. It comes in an aerosol can and is simply sprayed onto the shoe. It works on leather, suede, nubuck, and canvas materials and basically turns your shoe into a ducks back. Water, liquids, and even mud will roll right off the shoe without staining it. We aren’t sure of the science behind this (it could be magic) but from the video, it looks incredibly cool. We hope that they are able to start selling the product in the states soon as every guy in any situation could find a use for this. Click here for image source.
