Why should I use it?
The most sustainable piece of kit is the kit you already own. By using our footwear protection service, you’ll not only help keep your footwear performing at its best, but also extend its life by protecting it against potential damage. Better for you, better for the planet.
Do I need to book the service in advance?
No. You can just bring your footwear directly into a store and ask one of our experts to run the service for you.
Does my footwear need to be clean?
Yes. To get the best protection results, your footwear needs to be clean before being placed inside the machine. They don’t have to be pristine, but please make sure any dried-on dirt is removed from the footwear before bringing it into a store.
How safe is it?
The liquid and machine are produced in Denmark and approved in accordance with strict Danish standards (some of the most comprehensive in the world). The liquid is allergy-approved by AllergyCertified and thoroughly tested. After several million treatments, there have never been any reports of an allergic reaction. The liquid has also been thoroughly tested on its ability to repel all sorts of substances and has achieved the highest rating in efficiency, health, and safety in tests conducted by PFI Pirmasens in Germany - the preferred test institute for the footwear industry.
How much does it cost?
The protection service costs £4.50. It is only possible to place one set of footwear in the machine at a time so whilst you are welcome to bring multiple pairs of footwear in for treatment, each pair will incur a separate charge.
Can I just use the machine myself when I arrive in-store?
Please ask a member of staff when you arrive in-store if you would like to use the footwear protection service. Our in-store experts will be able to check your footwear, advise on the correct programme and operate the machine, and ensure you get the right protection for your footwear.
How long does the treatment last?
The protection lasts up to 6 weeks but is dependent on how often the footwear is worn and the material it is made of. Purchasing a spray or sponge proofers will help you to further maintain the protection at home. Ask our in-store experts about which aftercare spray is most suitable for your footwear.
