For Indians, the monsoon is arguably the best and worst season of the year. The rains keep the weather nice and cool, add a picturesque natural effect to every photo, and are an absolute joy when visiting the countryside but that’s just one side of the rains. The cruel side is having to commute to work in heavy rains. And while we’ll always have umbrellas, raincoats and windcheaters to protect your upper body, your footwear still falls victim to the rains. But what if it doesn’t have to? What if there’s an alternative to carry a second pair of shoes in your bag? Would you take it or let it slip? Enter water repellent sprays for shoes!
Commute without a bother
Did you know one of the best parts of a water repellent shoe spray is that they repel water, which means that your shoes dry up much faster and your feet remain dry? Additionally, a soaked shoe is much heavier than a dry shoe, and water repellent sprays can keep your shoe dry and light, not only allowing your feet to breathe but ensuring that the stink is kept at bay.
No more cold feet
However, if your water repellent spray isn’t capable of the features mentioned above, then ditch it for our nature-loving, environmentally friendly, non-toxic cleaning solution. And while we’re on the subject on the environment, it’s always good to have some waterproofing on your shoes when you go on a trek. A water repellent cleaning solution keeps the water off the shoes and your feet warm and dry on the inside.
Keep the blisters at bay
But that’s not all! Did you know that you’re more likely to develop blisters when your feet are wet? This is primarily because your skin becomes softer and more vulnerable to rubbing and abrasions from keeping up with an active lifestyle that involves tons of walking and running. If you’ve got an excellent water repellent coating over your shoes, something like Fabshield, your feet will remain dry and comfortable. There’s one more thing a water repellent spray does over really well, and that keeps your shoes
clean, come what may. Did you know that a single coat of Fabshield will help you wash stains, muck or dirt off your shoes with zero effort? Don’t believe us; then see for yourself!
