It is a matter of fact that every sneaker develops ugly creases after some time. When you just bought a pair of brand new snickers, you wish to make sure they look pristine and new for as long as possible, of course. Sadly, you can’t really prevent creases from coming up on the noses of your shoes. Such a waste! Fortunately, you no longer need to throw out your precious shoes because there is a very simple trick that might help you remove the creases.

With this life hack, your sneakers might be able to look as good as new again!

Sneaker creases

So why do these creases appear in the noses of your sneakers? It is actually very simple and logical. Most sneakers are made of materials that are pretty tough and inflexible. This implies that when you start walking around in your new shoes, the material needs to find a way to move with your feet. Every time you roll off your toes when you are walking, the material creases a little bit more. After a while, the material sports a clear crease, which isn’t what you desire for your nice shoes. Luckily; there is a way to fix it.


The requirement for these simple tricks is: your sneakers, old socks or another type of fabric, an iron and hot water. At first, you will need to fill up the noses of your sneakers with bunches of old socks, newspaper or other types of material. Now fill them up until the creases are no longer visible. When you press the top of your shoe and there is no movement there, you have filled up the shoes enough.


Next, you need to get out another pair of old socks or any other type of fabric and moisten it with hot water (you shouldn’t drench them though). Place the slightly wet sock over the nose of your sneaker (on the outside). This is where your iron comes in. You should carefully iron over the top of the sock. Lift your iron regularly so you are sure you don’t burn the shoe. Continue doing this until the creases have disappeared from the shoe completely.
