    I see more people having issues with Crepe protect than actually helping their sneakers stay clean! Lol

    That’s nuts. A girl spilled a drink on my joints this past Saturday, I wiped them down and they look virtually the same.

    It’s prob the crap product he sprayed
     
  9. Crep is garbage idk why everyone uses that ****. I use Saphir since it's meant for suede and highend boots. Gotta reapply it every few wears, but to me that just speaks to it being a less harsh/potent mix of chemicals.

    ^This. Crep has way too many chemicals for my taste. IMO in the long run it will do more harm than good.

    Hmm, Saphir should be good to throw on the Bones then.

    Thought crep was/is used as an a means to protect sneakers from stains and grime. Nothing a toothbrush and soap and cant help with

    I applied baby oil to the area and it came back somewhat decent. All good, beating these to the ground anyway

    I mainly use this stuff on white shoes to prevent stains. I can’t just get another pair of Bones again, so I’d like to keep them relatively clean.

    does the protectant compromise the shoe's materials?

    that's my biggest qualm w using protector for suede shoes.

    i know w/ quality leather they encourage treatment w oil and stuff.

    but ima keep it all da way real. im too lazy for al lthat lol

    Too risky; i don't trust these products and how they'd react with whatever the suede been treated with.
    Moist cloth all the way.
     
  19. I just use it to waterproof some stuff. But yeah I had the same concern as you, that's why I went with a more high-end waterproofer that I knew wouldn't do anything to darken the suede or **** up the material in some other way. Used it on a few common projects, botega venetta boots, and 750s and they were all fine after application. I think a big part of it is also making sure you aren't just spraying things down until it soaks into the material. Like spray painting, a few light coats is almost always the way to go.

    These days I just don't wear anything nice on days it's going to rain or I'll wear my beaters if I'm going to a bar or something like that.

    could i go a full size up in fpg 1s? would my feet be swimming? would i look like a stylish but demented clown?

    there's a pre-owned pair of bones calling me...and the price is right. but the size is wrong. decisions decisions...

    Bro...don't even try it. They are going to be LONG AF! Basically sizing up on the FOG 1 is the equivalent of going up an entire 1.5 size up in any other shoe. Imagine wearing a 10 yet you try earing a 11.5:sick:
