Waterproof Your Boots With Ceramic Pro 9H

Postby Grzldvt » Tue Oct 24, 2017 12:16 am

I own an Auto Detailing Shop in Silicon Valley and we do Ceramic Coatings, which are incredible. One of the promo videos shows putting it on hiking boots to waterproof them. So I tried it, and it worked. Went through a couple of streams and the water repelled right off. It was liked a just waxed hood where the water beaded off. My feet were dry, and the boots were dry. There are many Ceramic Pro dealers around, so I would suggest checking it out. Yes, it is odd that an auto detailing product would be used in this manner, but Ceramic Pro has many, many household uses. This is just one of them that really works for hiking boots. They must be full leather, as Gortex, has it's own deal going on, and 9H wont fill the pores. But if your boots are all leather or all nylon, it works.

I don't want waterproof, don't need waterproof, never will have waterproof boots. They dry much faster when they are not Goretex. Don't want another round of foot fungus, thanks.
