Introduction: How to Uncrease Your Sneakers!!
Want to get rid of those ugly crease lines in your sneakers? Follow these steps to get rid of them!
This method is primarily for leather material shoes. I used an iron with a steam feature on my Jordan Retro 5’s “Fire Red”.
You will need 1:Creased sneakers (leather material) 2. A bottle of water 3. A iron that can produce steam 4.
Step 3: Bring Them Together
The better packed the paper is the better it’ll form to the shoe. Once the leather cools down it will return back to the original shape.
Step 4: Put Them In
Place inserts inside the shoes. The forms I used were from the original box. Make sure the shoe forms correspond with the correct feet.
Step 5: Remove the Laces
It is easier to iron the toe box of the sneaker without the laces being in the shoe. Additionally, removing the laces protects them from being burnt.
Step 6: Fill Up the Iron
Fill up the iron with water to the designated line. Do not have the iron plugged in.
Step 7: Prep!
Before you start ironing grab 2 cotton cloths to put over the shoe. These cloths will be used to protect the shoe from burning.
Step 8: Protect Your Product.
Pour an excessive amount of water over the toe box. This will protect the shoe from being burnt.
Step 9: Start Ironing
Begin to iron the cloth over the areas where their are creases on the shoes. Let the iron steam on the shoe to warm up the leather this will cause it to stretch.
Step 10: Let Them Cool
the problem with this guide is that it’s made to sound like anybody can do it and that absolutely nothing can go wrong and that’s where i made the mistake,
i put faith in an online article and now i pay the price.
in the future please consider warning about the downsides and don’t do’s. if done wrong you can seriously ruin any leather product. i can’t tell what the cause is but i made it x10 times worse while following the guide. what started as a few small stripes turned into wrinkles that would put a bearded lizard to shame.
