I do not treat my footwear.|
1. With long pants I've never had a problem with the lower legs and smartwool socks (which I use) are damn near bite-proof anyway (too thick to bite through). Even BEFORE I wore long pants I never had trouble with bites on the area covered by socks or shoes.
2. I wear Altra trail running shoes for hiking (far prefer them to boots) but they get both (very) dirty/muddy and wet *regularly.* I expect that this would quickly attenuate or even destroy the effectiveness of the material.
IF I was to get bit on the socked/shoed part of my body or ever found a tick there I'd change my mind fast, but I haven't thus far.
