Giriş

If your athletic shoes have creased toeboxes due to a high amount of usage, or you simply want to get a fresh look for your kicks, use this guide to reshape the toebox of your shoes.

Although there are many guides for reshaping and uncreasing the toebox of shoes, this guide is specific for athletic shoes such as runners and trainers. It will instruct you on how to remove creases in the toebox as well as how to reshape your shoes to almost original form. A hair dryer is used in this guide, which will lower the risk of injury and damage to your shoes, compared to other guides that mostly use an iron with significantly higher temperature.

Before using this guide, make sure the material of your shoes is not vulnerable to heat (40-50 Celsius degree) such as leather, because in Step 5, you will need to use the hair dryer on the toebox.
