Can You Waterproof Sneakers?
If you have sneakers already and are not sure about buying waterproof ones, here are some tips to ensure you stay dry while wandering around the world:
- Consider a waterproof sneaker spray, which works well on absorbent fabrics like knit, suede, or leather. Just make sure the one you buy accommodates the type of sneakers you have.
- You can also add a fabric wax to sneakers to waterproof them. Otter Wax is hugely popular and effective according to users.
- Lastly, you could also simply put on covers over your shoes while out and about. While not fashionable per se, they are protective! These shoe covers are reusable and non-slip.
Packing cubes make the perfect shoe bags to protect your luggage from dirty shoes.
