Shoes look best when they are new. However, it breaks our heart when they wear out. A YouTuber’s do-it-yourself hack to remove the creases on your old shoes is now going viral.

The video is shared by Shantel Dé Bonsu and here are the things you require: something to stuff your shoes with such as old socks, newspaper or tissue paper, a small towel, an iron and some hot water.

You are now set to make your shoe crease-free again. All you have to do is just follow these simple four steps:

1. Stuff your shoes with old socks or newspaper or tissue paper to the point where you cannot see any more creases on your old pair of shoes. Once, you are done, press on the top of your shoes just to make sure that there’s no space inside.

2. Take a small towel and put it in hot water and then squeeze the water out to make the towel damp.

3. Place the towel on the top of the creases on your shoes.

4. Iron the towel. Make sure that you keep lifting the iron, else you’ll end up burning your shoes.

Keep in mind that the time to get rid of the crease depends on how bad it is. Watch the video here:

Review: Ion Raid Amp II – Flat Pedal Shoes With Plenty of Grip

Ion Rascal II

Ion released the original Raid Amp flat pedal shoe a few seasons ago, and while they were light and comfortable, there was one problem – the soles just weren’t sticky enough. Time to go back to the drawing board. The latest version is called the Raid Amp II, and uses a new rubber compound and a softer midsole that’s designed to allow the shoes to really latch on to the pins of a flat pedal.

The shoes still have the same look and basic design elements of the original – the uppers are ventilated and designed to be quick drying, and the asymmetric cuff provides a little extra ankle protection. There’s also a molded rubber toecap to help prevent a rider’s toes from getting bruised and battered.

Ion Raid Amp II Details
• Pin Tonic sole design
• Molded rubber toe cap
• Elastic lace holder
• Asymmetric padded ankle cuff
• Weight: 470 grams (size 45, per shoe)
• Colors: black, grey, pink
• Sizes: 37-47
• $139.95 USD
• www.ion-products.com

The tongue isn’t gusseted, but there is an elastic strap sewn into the middle that helps keep the laces tucked out of the way. The Raid Amp II shoes are available in sizes 37-47, with three different color options: black, grey, or pink.

The asymmetric cuff and extra padding help dull the blow from crank and frame impacts.

Performance

Good news – the Raid Amp II shoes are actually grippy, and not in the usual “almost like a 5.10, but not quite” way. In fact, I’d put the stickiness level right on par with that of 5.10’s S1 rubber, the stuff that’s used on their Freerider Pro shoes. I’ve used the Raid Amp II’s on a very wide range of pedals – Shimano XT, Anvl Tilt, Kona Wah Wah, Burgtec Mk4 Composite, and found that there was plenty of traction in every instance. The shoes are stiff and supportive enough to wear on long rides without needing to worry about foot pain, but there’s still enough flex to make walking around off the bike feel very natural.

The shoes have a snug, foot-hugging fit, closer to what you’d expect from a pair of well-broken-in climbing shoes as opposed to a super-roomy skate shoe. That means these may not be the best option for riders with wide feet, but it does give them a very high degree of sensitivity, which makes it easy to tell exactly where your foot is on the pedal. How precise a shoe feels isn’t something that’s discussed very much, but it makes a difference when it comes to making those foot position micro-adjustments that flat pedal riding often requires.

The Raid Amp II’s aren’t going to keep your feet from getting soaked in a rainstorm, but they don’t turn into lead weights once they’re fully saturated either. The upper material doesn’t retain much water, and it didn’t take long to get them dry and ready for another dousing after wet rides. I haven’t tested them in any really scorching temperatures, but they do seem to breathe well, and the lack of any extra-thick padding in the uppers should help prevent any overheated feet once summer time arrives.

 The soles are going strong, but some of the stitching has started to come undone.

Durability

The soles of the shoes have held up very well over the last few months of use, without any unexpected wear or delamination, but I did run into some stitching related issues with the uppers. The stitching that holds one of the pull-straps on has begun to come apart, and while the last few stitches are holding strong, I’m not sure how long that will last. Some of the stitching just past where the front of the laces end has begun to give up as well, which is a little more worrying than losing the use of a pull-strap.

New Pic Of Deepika Padukone From Wedding Festivities Shared By Designer – No, It’s Not Sabyasachi

New Pic Of Deepika Padukone From Wedding Festivities Shared By Designer - No, It's Not Sabyasachi

 

After Sabyasachi and The House Of Angadi, Deepika Padukone picked an outfit from the shelves of Anamika Khanna for one of her wedding functions. The designer shared an image of Deepika with her family on her Instagram page and used ‘#weddingfestivities’ in the caption (now edited out) but she did not give away the details of event. In the picture, Deepika Padukone, dressed in an organza outfit, smiled as she hugged her family (in a very Hum Saath-Saath Hain style). Deepika’s sister Anisha, dressed in a chikankari anarkali, looked pretty. Deepika Padukone married actor Ranveer Singh in Italy earlier this month in the presence of their families and close friends. The couple is gearing up for their first Mumbai reception scheduled for November 28.

Anamika Khanna is the third designer Deepika Padukone opted for her wedding festivities, first being her favoured designer Sabyasachi. Deepika also wore a pure zari kanjeevaram saree in gold for the reception, which was a gift by her mother Ujjala Padukone from The House of Angadi. Deepika’s orange and gold saree for the Konkani wedding was also from The House of Angadi.

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s Italy wedding photos have left an indelible mark on our minds. With candid expressions, the couple’s Konkani and Sindhi wedding traditions spoke volumes about their closeness towards their families. While Deepika was a sight to behold in her dazzling red lehenga for their Sindhi wedding, Ranveer took a U-turn from his unconventional style and looked like the perfect groom for his ladylove.

Fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, whose outfits were the highlight in the grand DeepVeer wedding, shared a glimpse of how both Deepika and Ranveer’s attires were made. He shared snippets from behind-the-scenes about how intricately Deepika’s lehenga was designed, hand-stitched and beautifully embroidered.

On the other hand, Ranveer’s wedding sherwani which was hand-knitted with golden buttons as fixtures and beautifully stitched dupatta with gold work, exhibited the designer’s love for revival in Indian traditional fashion. With decadent, monotone and simple ensembles, Ranveer and Deepika’s Sabyasachi creations have given several couples some wedding outfit ideas.

After DeepVeer’s Bangalore wedding reception on November 21, the couple has hosted another wedding reception today for Ranveer’s family and later they will hold a party to celebrate with their industry friends. The Mumbai reception today is expected to commence at 8 pm that will take place at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

The couple married in Villa del Balbianello at Lake Como in Italy. Instead of a horse, Ranveer chose to arrive with his baraat on a seaplane since the Villa was surrounded by the water body.
