How to Uncrease Your Sneakers!!





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".

Step 1: Gather Your Materials !

You will need 1:Creased sneakers (leather material) 2. A bottle of water 3. A iron that can produce steam 4. Cardboard inserts 5.paper 6.2x Wash clothes

Step 2: Fold Your Packing Paper

Grab some regular paper, this will be used pack the inside of the shoe.

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

At this point your about done. Let the sneakers cool down with the cloths still on them so the change in temperature wont be to dramatic.

Step 11: Your Done!

I never knew you could iron the wrinkles out of leather. Thank you for this.

Would this work the same with a steam iron for jordan 1s?

Do you have to have the paper and carboard in there while ironing the shoe?

Yes but if you dont have that you could also use socks.

Ok how did you think of doing this? Have you tried it on leather dress shoes? Simply brilliant!

No, this would ruin real leather. Sneakers aren't made of real leather. There's no difference in the before and after pictures of these sneakers either...

Because they aren't before and after pictures....

Not completely true. My Air Jordan Retro 1 "New Love" are real leather

I noticed the same thing about the photos.
