    • Let the patch cool before use.

Conclusion

Try on your shoe. If there are edges that are not flattened, iron on a lower heat for 30 seconds on those spots. Be careful not to heat the patch too much, as the glue on the patch could dry out. Once cooled, re-lace the shoe, and it will be ready to wear again!

If you desire extra security, you can reinforce your patch using this guide.
