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:

The Curious Case of Kanye West’s New Shoes

Today, Kanye West stepped out in Calabasas in typical Kanye fashion. He was fully decked out in Yeezy gear, including a prune-colored oversized T-shirt that was layered over a nubby long-sleeve shirt in faded indigo blue and trousers the shade of sun-bleached violets. The most eye-catching element of his outfit? A peculiar pair of ankle-hugging gray booties. With a paper-thin rubber sole that turned up towards the toe, the shoeswere unconventional to say the least. Were they scuba socks? Karate slip-ons? The details remain unclear. My colleague, Vogue Culture Writer Bridget Read, made the most astute observation: “They look like L.L. Bean insoles.”

The rapper and fashion designer has a history of flaunting bizarre footwear. Last August at the wedding of his friend 2-Chainz in Miami, West styled his Louis Vuitton suit with a pair of too-small pool slides that appeared to be borrowed from his wife Kim. (He would later defend his choice in a now-deleted Tweet, arguing that the awkward sandal-to-foot ratio was a traditional Japanese style. It wasn’t.)

Either way, West’s footwear isn’t totally out of the ordinary. Sock shoes have been around for quite some time—both Balenciaga and Vetements have released elevated versions of the style. It could be that the rapper is dipping his um, toeinto an entirely new Yeezy category.

How to Clean Velvet Shoes So They Look New

Detail of shoes, Street Style, Day 4, Autum Winter 2017, Paris Fashion Week, France - 03 Mar 2017

With their soft sheen, rich color and elegant flair, velvet shoes add a luxurious touch to any woman’s wardrobe. But with such a fine fabric, special handling is required. The material is particularly vulnerable to inclement weather and spills, which can leave behind unsightly marks and cause the fabric to become crushed and matted — leading to bald spots over time.

Thankfully, it’s actually quite easy to get them looking like new despite water, mud and any other random stains you may encounter. As a rule of thumb, you’ll want to avoid wearing velvet shoes in rain or snow, as they’ll be harder to salvage in this case. However, there are ways you can make them more resilient against the elements, such as using a protective spray. Read on to learn our simple tips for cleaning velvet shoes and preventing future wear and tear.

For Dirt and Mud Stains

1. Let your shoes dry out.

If your shoes are caked with mud, it’s important to let the velvet dry completely before trying to clean the stain. Mud is much easier to remove from the surface when it’s dry.

2. Use a brush to remove dirt.

When your shoes are completely dry, use a toothbrush or other soft brush to remove excess dirt or dust. Make sure to brush in the direction of the nap to restore its sheen. Brushing the shoes after every wear is also a great way to keep dirt to a minimum and prevent the nap from getting crushed.

For All Other Marks and Spills

1. Blot excess moisture.

Lightly dab at the wet stain to soak up excess moisture. Do this as soon as possible to prevent the stain from setting.

2. Make a gentle cleaning solution.

For an easy DIY-solution, mix water and dish soap in a small bowl. Alternatively, you can try a combination of lemon juice and two tablespoons of baking soda. Fill the bowl with lemon juice until you get a considerable amount of foam on the top (this is important for the next step).

3. Use a soft cloth to the apply the solution.

Once you get a foamy consistency, skim a soft cloth over the suds or foam — so as not to get the velvet too damp — and gently wipe the affected area. Avoid rubbing the solution into the velvet and stick to long straight movements to keep the nap in place. Let the shoes air dry.

5. Protect against future stains with a protective spray.

While it won’t make your shoes completely waterproof, it’s a great idea to apply a protective spray to your velvet shoes to prevent future stains. Scotchgard’s top-rated Fabric & Upholstery Protector is safe to use on velvet (you can find this out by checking the manufacturer’s instructions on products designed for leather or suede).

New shoes make a difference

Image result for New shoes make a differenceChildren sat attentive in rows of chairs with parents behind them as a college student washed their feet and exchanged kind words before putting a new sneaker on each foot.

More than 60 University of Jamestown students greeted area families that registered for the Samaritan’s Feet distribution day event Sunday at Harold Newman Arena. The UJ students collected 275 pairs of new shoes over the first semester and from direct donations and at a UJ basketball game.

“In retrospect it’s been a lot of work but it doesn’t seem like work, it really doesn’t,” said Mika Thorlakson, a UJ professor of kinesiology and program adviser.

The UJ students were moved by the idea of collecting and distributing shoes for kids, some of whom have never had a new pair, he said. Active and growing kids go through a lot of shoes which puts a burden on parents, he said.

The kids and parents were led to a feet washing station and the youth were fitted with new shoes. The kids were then invited to play games with UJ students on the arena floor.

Charles Eastman of Jamestown said he and his wife were grateful to have a new pair of shoes for their 9-year-old daughter. She goes through a lot of clothing, especially jackets and shoes, and any help is appreciated, he said.

“Anytime we can get some type of help it makes things a lot easier on us,” Eastman said.

Jeremy and Justina Jones said their 8-year-old twin boys are active and go through shoes fast.

“It’s great that they provide this help for children,” Justina said. “I just think it’s a great program.”

Denise Blomberg, regional operations director of the Samaritan’s Feet in Sioux Falls, S.D., said Jamestown has a culture of service and the servant leadership example is exemplified at the university. It’s a community that is aligned well with the organizational goal of giving out a million shoes this year, she said.

“This is a natural progression for us to start the Samaritan’s Feet Ambassadors chapter here,” Blomberg said. “This is the first of its kind and it can be replicated anywhere.”

Samaritan’s Feet was founded in 2003 by Manny Ohonme, who came to the University of North Dakota-Lake Region on a basketball scholarship and went on to earn a master’s degree. As a youth in Nigeria, the gift of his first pair of shoes from a missionary at age 9 changed his life.

The UJ Samaritan’s Feet Ambassadors is a first-of-its-kind model that may soon be used at other colleges and communities that form their own chapters, Blomberg said. The UJ students collected more than 200 pairs of shoes in 2018 but had not yet formed the Samaritan’s Feet Ambassadors chapter.

Sunday’s event was rescheduled from a weather-cancelled event on Jan. 26. When the UJ totals are known they will be added to the other events in 15 cities and 12 states when more than 9,000 pairs of shoes were given to children as part of the Martin Luther King National Day of Service Initiative, she said.

More than 6,500 pairs of shoes have been distributed at events in seven North Dakota cities since 2014, she said. More than 6.9 million shoes have been distributed in 41 states in that time.

Tommy Voss, a UJ senior in exercise science, is president of the Samaritan’s Feet UJ Ambassadors. He said it is the largest campus organization. The students embrace a program that does good and involves servitude, he said.

“I find that it’s very humbling to be part of something like this,” Voss said.

People come forward when they are in need and it isn’t taken lightly by the students, he said. This is a big responsibility but a fantastic opportunity to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, he said.

“These little kids are the future so it means a lot to me,” said Jack Talley, a sophomore pre-law student at UJ.

It’s important to help all kids in the community, he said. The bigger impact of doing something meaningful for a child is that the child in turn may remember this and do the same some day, he said.

Sydney Prussia, a sophomore elementary education student at UJ, said she volunteered as a way to do other things that relate to helping kids.

“This is just another reason to help more kids,” Prussia said.
