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!
