To properly complete this process you will need:
Worn shoes- To reduce the creases
A Washcloth- To put over top of the shoes
An Iron-To get out the creases
Water- To put in the iron, and to apply to the washcloth 

You will also need something to stick in your shoe, for this example I used a pair of socks 

Step 2:

Apply water to the washcloth by running it under the sink for approximately 2-3 mins. Be sure to wring out the washcloth making sure that there is no excess water dripping from any of the edges. This process prevents the heat that is produced from the iron not to damage your shoes. 

Step 3:

Apply damp washcloth over creased area of shoe. Allow the washcloth to sit for 1-2 minutes to allow the moisture to seep into the shoe.
