Grab some regular paper, this will be used pack the inside of the shoe.
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.
Place inserts inside the shoes. The forms I used were from the original box. Make sure the shoe forms correspond with the correct feet.
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.
Fill up the iron with water to the designated line. Do not have the iron plugged in.
Before you start ironing grab 2 cotton cloths to put over the shoe. These cloths will be used to protect the shoe from burning.
Pour an excessive amount of water over the toe box. This will protect the shoe from being burnt.
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 ...

We have a be nice comment policy. Please be positive and constructive.
i tried this method for a leather holster i use. same principle really except in a square shape just for some old wrinkles i want out before the dying process but now i can throw it away and buy a new one.
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.
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...
