How to Protect the Hoka Clifton 8 with Shoe MGK Water and Stain Repellent

The best way to make sure your running shoes last is to ensure they never get dirty, to begin with. When you take the Cliftons out of the box, you want to spray them with the Shoe MGK Water and Stain Repellent. This process puts a protective barrier over the synthetic mesh uppers that repels water, dirt, and stains from ever attaching to your shoe. The deformities bead up and roll off the mesh ensuring your shoes stay clean.

  1. Make sure the Hoka Clifton 8s are dry before applying Water and Stain Repellent. 
  2. Next, cover the entire shoe with spray. Add more layers for extra protection.
  3. Let dry for 24 hours.
