Other than imitation sneakers, wrinkled shoes are something every sneakerhead fears.
Even the most conscientious sneakerhead will agree that sneakers will inevitably get creased if worn on a daily basis.
So, in addition to investing in sneaker inserts, you should have some advice on how to remove these unsightly creases from your sneakers as soon as possible.
What Causes Crease Lines on Shoes?
All shoes, particularly leather and suede sneakers or boots, become creased and wrinkled. This is because our feet naturally bend when we walk, and footwear is designed to accommodate this movement. Shoes that are too stiff would be quite painful to wear. The material scrunches as a result of the bending movement of the feet, resulting in wrinkles.
How to Handle Sneaker Creases?
There are several methods for removing these lines, the most common of which is to use an iron.
Let’s look at how: A washcloth, cardboard inserts or paper, a bottle of water, and a steam iron are all required. The first step is to pack your sneakers from toe to heel with cardboard inserts. It is critical to pack it as tightly as possible so that the shoe retains its shape. Then,
• Dampen a washcloth and place it over the wrinkle.
• Fill your steam iron with water and set it to medium heat.
• Iron over the washcloth, allowing the iron to steam on the shoe; this heats and stretches the leather.
• Check under the washcloth frequently to ensure that your footwear are not harmed.
• Once the crease lines have been removed, unplug the iron, remove the washcloth, and allow your sneakers to cool.
• After the sneakers have totally cooled, remove the cardboard insert.
• You’re finished!!
Investing in high-quality shoes that fit properly is also essential for avoiding crease lines.
