If you’re a sneakerhead, you know how important it is to keep your kicks clean and fresh. But even with regular cleaning, your shoes are still vulnerable to wear and tear. That’s where Crep Protect comes in – their Crep Shields are a game changer when it comes to protecting your shoes from damage. In this article, we’ll show you how to put Crep Shields in shoes so you can keep your kicks looking brand new for longer.
Before we get started, you’ll need to make sure you have the following:
- Crep Protect Crep Shields
- Clean shoes
Step 1: Cut the Crep Shield to Fit Your Shoe
Each Crep Shield comes in a universal size, so you’ll need to cut it to fit your specific shoe. Place the Crep Shield on the sole of your shoe and use scissors to trim it to the right size. Make sure to leave a little bit of extra space so you can tuck the edges into the sides of the shoe.
Step 2: Clean Your Shoes
Before you apply the Crep Shield, make sure your shoes are clean and dry. Use a soft brush or cloth to remove any dirt or debris from the surface of the shoe.
Step 3: Peel Off the Backing
Once your shoes are clean and dry, peel off the backing from the Crep Shield. Make sure to handle it carefully so you don’t accidentally fold or crease it.
Step 4: Apply the Crep Shield to Your Shoe
Place the Crep Shield onto the sole of your shoe, starting at the heel and smoothing it down towards the toe. Make sure to press it firmly into place so it sticks securely to the shoe.
Step 5: Tuck the Edges into the Sides of the Shoe
Once the Crep Shield is in place, tuck the edges into the sides of the shoe. This will help to keep it securely in place and prevent it from peeling up over time.
Step 6: Repeat for the Other Shoe
Repeat the process for the other shoe, making sure to cut the Crep Shield to fit properly and apply it securely to the sole of the shoe.
How long do Crep Shields last?
Crep Shields are designed to last for up to 6 months, depending on how often you wear your shoes and how much wear and tear they’re exposed to.
Can I remove the Crep Shields once they’re applied?
Yes, you can remove the Crep Shields if you want to. Simply peel them off gently from the sole of the shoe.
Can I reuse Crep Shields?
No, Crep Shields are designed for one-time use only. Once you remove them from the shoe, you’ll need to replace them with a new one.
Do Crep Shields work on all types of shoes?
Crep Shields are designed to work on most types of shoes, including leather, suede, canvas, and mesh. However, they may not adhere as well to shoes with very textured soles.
Can I still clean my shoes with Crep Shields applied?
Yes, you can still clean your shoes as normal with Crep Shields applied. However, you should avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive brushes, as these can damage the Crep Shield.
Can I apply Crep Shields to shoes that are already damaged?
Crep Shields are designed to prevent damage to shoes, not repair existing damage. If your shoes are already damaged, you’ll need to have them repaired before applying Crep Shields.
Do Crep Shields affect the fit or feel of my shoes?
No, Crep Shields are designed to be thin and lightweight, so they won’t affect the fit or feel of your shoes.
Are Crep Shields environmentally friendly?
Crep Shields are made from a recyclable material, but they are not biodegradable. Make sure to dispose of them properly when you’re finished using them.
Using Crep Shields can help to extend the life of your shoes and keep them looking new for longer. They’re easy to apply and won’t affect the fit or feel of your shoes. Plus, they’re a more affordable option than getting your shoes resoled or repaired.
