Crep Protect: the ultimate shoe care products

In today’s world, our shoes are constantly exposed to the elements. Whether we’re on a night out or going for a run, our shoes are vulnerable to dirt, water, and stains.

While most of us don’t think twice about getting our shoes wet or dirty, the reality is that these everyday exposures can lead to long-term damage. It’s important to protect our shoes not only to keep them looking good but also to extend their lifespan.

That’s where Crep Protect comes in. Crep Protect is a revolutionary product that provides an invisible barrier against the elements. It’s easy to use – simply apply it to your shoes before you wear them – and it’s completely invisible, so you don’t have to worry about changing the look of your favourite pair of trainers.

Their Ultimate Shoe Care Pack contains all the products and tools you need to keep your shoes looking and feeling like new, no matter how often you wear them.

Cleaning: the first line of defence

The best way to protect your shoes is to clean them regularly. This will remove any dirt, dust, or stains that could potentially damage the material.

There are a few different ways to clean your shoes, depending on the material. For leather shoes, you can use a damp cloth and a specialist leather cleaner. For suede shoes, use a soft brush or sponge and suede cleaner. If you’re thinking about putting trainers in the washing machine, read our comprehensive guide first.

And for fabric shoes, you can use a shoe brush with some mild detergent. The Shoe Cleaning kit by Crep Protect contains exactly that. Everything you need to keep your new shoes looking their best.

Once you’ve cleaned your shoes, you’ll need to dry them off. The best way to do this is to stuff them with newspaper and leave them to air dry in a cool, dark place. Avoid using direct heat, as this can damage the material.

Crep Protect is completely safe for all materials, including leather and suede. Mainline Menswear offers a selection of Crep Protect products, perfect for whatever shoes or trainers you have. The popular Ultimate Box Pack covers all bases and gives you everything you need to stay looking sharp.

Storing: keep them looking good for longer

When you’re not wearing your shoes, it’s important to store them properly to prevent any damage. The best way to do this is to keep them in their original box, as this will protect them from dust and dirt.

If you don’t have the box, you can use a shoe bag or a cloth storage bag. Whichever option you choose, make sure your shoes are clean and dry before you store them away.
