    Aside from walking like a robot, how do I stop the creases? Everyone knows new dress shoes always looks really nice, but after that same evening.....folds and creases.:(

    How do I stop this? :hs:

    shoe trees when you arent wearing them

    and dont wear the same pair two days in a row


    and learn to love the wrinkles. after a while, they'll start looking great, if maintained properly

    to be honest, I overcame this by buying nicer shoes. my allen edmonds have been worn every day for 2 years for school, and they're beat to shit but the leather barely has any creasing on it. just seems to be higher quality and longer lasting than other regular leather shoes/boots I've tried

    im sure quality of leather makes a difference, but cheap or expensive shoes, they both wrinkle
