How to get rid of creases on sneakers and make them look brand new

However clean and shiny you've managed to keep your trainers, there is one tell-tale sign that they're not straight out the box - creases.

They come simply from walking so there isn't much you can do about them, but one very clever woman has come up with an easy hack to get rid of them.

The four-steps will leave your trainers looking good as new - and it's completely free and doesn't take too long.

YouTuber Shantel De Bonsu shared the trick on her Twitter account, reports the Liverpool Echo .

In a feed which has been a big hit with fans, she explains exactly what you need to do.

Step 1: Stuff your shoe with the socks/old clothes or tissue paper to the point where you can’t see the crease anymore and when you press on the top of the shoe it doesn’t move.
