The Art of Crease Prevention


     The art of preventing ones shoes from creasing is one of scholarly proportions, everyone has their own methods of crease prevention but I always wondered which method is the best. Some people say wearing ones perfect shoe size is a way to prevent creasing, as going an unnecessary size up encourages creasing depending on how the person walks. The creasing of the individuals shoes can then be attributed to if they walk by pivoting off their front toes, by walking with ones feet parallel to the ground it makes sense that there will be less creasing. Other causes of creasing is how a person tightens their laces, the more loose the lace the less stress there is at the front of the sneaker.

The ritual I like to use to prevent the creasing of my shoes is pretty simple; by driving to long distances and not walking I am able to maintain a routine walking pattern. This way the weak leg which is my left is able to keep up with the right keeping excess pressure off one leg. Another method that can be used to prevent the creasing of ones shoe is stuffing ones shoe with the brown lining which comes with a new sneaker, one can even use the stuffing’s initially present in new shoes as a substitute.If I had any individual I could converse with about preventing creases in sneakers it would be the local shoe repair shop owner as the have a lot of experience working with shoes of all kinds. There is nothing more frustrating than getting a new pair of shoes and on the first day there is a multiple creases as this renders the shoe useless.
