Waterproofing spray for shoes, boots and sneakers
To protect all your favorite suede, calfskin or nubuck shoes and boots, this category includes waterproofing sprays.
They can also be used on canvas, synthetic and trainers. Waterproofing bombs can be applied to the entire shoe, including the laces.
For oily leather, we recommend using a protective oil rather than a waterproofing product. The best way to waterproof your leather shoes or boots is to use a beeswax polish. Conventional waterproofing sprays will clog the pores of the leather. This blockage can lead to cracking over time.
Waterproofing sprays protect your footwear from the elements in winter and from moisture and water in summer. One product, optimum protection all year round.
Protecting from the rain
To keep shoes looking good, waterproofing sprays prevent water from penetrating. By preventing water from coming into contact with the material, this slows down the wear and tear on shoes. So they last longer.
It is recommended to protect your shoes from damage caused by bad weather. Waterproofing sprays are particularly effective against rain and snow.
They are used at the end of maintenance to apply a protective layer to clean shoes. Waterproofing can only be applied to shoes that have been cleaned and restored. It is advisable to use it at the end of a renovation to prolong the life of the shoes. Or immediately after buying a new pair of shoes.
Wait a few minutes after spraying. The protective film needs time to dry.
The waterproofing formulas on offer have a high protective capacity. Once applied, the protective layer lasts for a long time without the need for touch-ups. The protective layer allows water to bead up on the shoe rather than impregnate it. Waterproofing your footwear prevents the appearance of stains caused by moisture. This makes future maintenance easier.
This is why the recommended frequency of use varies depending on where you live and how often you wear your shoes. As a general rule, our team recommends applying after each cleaning, preferably once a month.
You can also apply a waterproofing product between cleanings. This is particularly recommended in the autumn when the weather is wet.
Protecting against dirt
The waterproofing of suede shoes and trainers plays a crucial role in keeping them looking clean. Waterproofing provides a protective film against external aggression and everyday mishaps. It is particularly effective against dirt and dust.
It prevents dirt in all its forms from penetrating the leather, suede or texture. It creates an impenetrable barrier against stains. They can't get in. When you're walking on muddy ground, wading through puddles or facing a sudden downpour, your shoes are protected from dirt and moisture.
This barrier makes future conversations easier.
Their ability to create a protective barrier against dirt, oil and other substances helps keep shoes clean and attractive.
Preserving the original appearance
Suede shoes and trainers are often chosen for their aesthetic appeal. However, the accumulation of dirt and stains can alter their appearance and value.
By using waterproofing products, you not only maintain the integrity of the material, but also the original appearance of your shoes. Waterproofers act as an invisible protective barrier, preventing dirt from becoming embedded in the suede fibres or adhering to the trainer fabric.
This means you can keep your shoes clean for longer. So you can spread out your maintenance.
Liquid and transparent, waterproofing products will not change the color of shoes. They are particularly popular for suede care. Their spray bottles apply just the right amount of waterproofing with each squeeze.
Waterproofers are not noticeable on footwear because they do not leave a sticky or shiny finish. It does not change the feel of the materials. Your shoes will retain their original softness and shine.
Monsieur Chaussure's advice
Regular use and maintenance of waterproofing products can extend the life of materials and protect them from the damaging effects of weather and dirt.
By using these products, you can prolong the life of your footwear and continue to wear it with confidence. Whatever the weather or terrain you're facing.
All of the waterproofing products in this category can be used on footwear that has been cleaned with shoe cleaner. Our care advice can be found in our shoe polish tutorials in the advice and videos section.
Waterproofing products come in spray form. They should be used in a well-ventilated room away from heat sources. Apply the waterproofing spray at least 20 cm from the footwear.
Drying time varies according to brand and shoe size. As a general rule, we recommend that you allow your footwear to dry for at least one hour to ensure complete protection. To dry your shoes, do not leave them in direct sunlight or near a source of heat.
To prevent the development of odors associated with footwear moisture, you can spray your shoes with shoe deodoriser.
