How to do that?
1) Rub the beeswax over the entirety of the shoe. You can use rubber gloves to keep your hands clean.
2) Use a blow dryer to seal the deal then melt the wax all over the shoe then let set for about 5 min.s before wearing!
3) Final step: splash a little water to test out your new waterproof shoes.
And the quality test! 🙂
