Have you ever accidentally stumbled across a genius idea or way of doing something completely out of the blue? Or maybe you’ve been doing a hobby or a chore for so long that you’ve simply found a more efficient or clever way of doing it. Either way – it’s such a satisfying feeling, right?
As it turns out, there’s a whole world out there of people who really, really love their sneakers. And the creases that appear on the toe? Apparently, that’s just unacceptable. Well, a woman who happens to be an avid sneaker enthusiast found a way to remove those creases and when she shared it online? It went crazy viral.
People all over the world spend hundreds of dollars and wait hours outside stores for limited edition Nikes or Adidas. So, it only makes sense to want to keep them looking like new for as long as possible.
Shantel De Bonsu is responsible for the viral Twitter hack that sent ‘sneakerheads’ into a total frenzy.
Shantel is from Bexleyheath, UK and she recently sat down to speak with Bored Panda about her genius trainer crease hack she shared. But first, she explained where her passion for nice sneakers comes from.
“When I was younger my school used to have quite a few non-uniform days and I’d always come to them with the same shoes,” she explained. “No one else ever did, which was hard for me because I love shoes but was never able to get as many as I wanted. So I told myself that when I’m older with some money, I’ll get myself more shoes and help those who’d like to get more shoes by sharing discount codes or simply reminding people that there’s a sale.”
