For those who love to think out of the box on sprucing up their sneaks and sandals, we have a slew of hacks for you! Whether your shoes are too tight, need a little refresh or you just want to give them a totally new look, these style secrets are a great way to ramp up your shoe game. Read on for easy, fun ways to make your Skechers go the extra mile!
STRETCH YOUR STYLE
Got a pair of sandals that you totally adore, but are a little too tight? Put your socks to work! Slip a thick pair and wear your shoes over them (at home is fine; we’ll keep this look just between us) and your shoes will gradually loosen up over time. Whip off those socks… and your perfectly stretched soles are ready to rock!
Some soles can squeak a little when you walk (not that ours do!)… and the cure-all may be right in your closet! Just shake a little baby powder into your shoes, and it can keep the sound at bay. Plus, baby powder has a nice scent for those who want to freshen up their soles.
For shoes that have a little more stink, something as simple as tea bags can do the trick! The below Skech-Knit shoe is great for letting your foot naturally breathe, but for those styles that don’t breathe as well, tea bags are a totally natural alternative to shoe deodorants, and you can make them any scent you please… just raid your kitchen cabinets for your personal favorites, drop a couple dry, unused tea bags into smelly shoes and let them sit for a wonderfully scented solution to old soles.
LOVE TO LACE
Here’s a totally easy way to spruce up your lace-up sneaks, without buying anything at all! Skechers sneakers come with two sets of laces, so you can always go crazy with a new color. Explore new ways to lace up your sneaks – a simple new pattern can give your old soles an entirely new look. It’s especially great for updating kids’ sneaks; invite them to come up their own new designs… they’ll soon be showing them off to their friends at school!
Are your laces getting a little frayed at the edges? Extend their life with a couple pieces of tape from your drawer… just wrap them around the ends, and you’re done! It’s simple and quick – and when you get home, you can always switch them out with your second set of Skechers shoelaces!
