Are you using proper shoe removal technique? Yes, there's a right and wrong way to take off your sneakers. By stepping on the heel to kick them off without untying, you hardly save any time and wear them out much faster. To avoid stretching or bending your shoes out of shape, take the few extra seconds to untie and remove them by hand.
If you really can't afford to spare tying (and untying) time, use this helpfulshoe-tying technique from our friends at FitSugar.
