We all know that horrible feeling of looking down at your feet to see a number of deep and depressing creases at the end of your new kicks. Fortunately, you can help your favourite pair of shoes last for a great length of time with some TLC. Of course, creases are inevitable, but there are some things you can do to prevent its occurrence. I found using these tips allowed me to keep my new Lebron 18s in flawless condition.
1. Buy the Right Size: Don’t buy a pair that doesn’t fit you. Just stay away from ill-fitting shoes. I don’t care if you really like the design. No matter how much you like the pair you want to purchase, it is probably not and ideal option, as far as shoe creasing and wrinkling are concerned.
2. Wear Your Shoes in Dry Conditions Before Normal Use: The point here is to wear your shoes without having to dry them before they break-in properly. This is because if water get soaked into the shoes during the break-in period, the creases will appear, particularly in the toe box.
3. Use a Shoe Horn To Reduce Heel Creasing: I know what you’re thinking, only old people use shoe horns. Well if you want to keep your sneakers in good condition, you better start using one as well. A shoehorn will allow you to slide the shoes in faster but will also add support t the back of the shoe, therefore keeping it free from creasing.
4. Have Multiple Pairs: It would be best if you don’t repeat your shoes. Swapping shoes in between your weekly routine helps the shoe to dry out completely before the next wearing. This is particularly useful during the winter season.
