Refusing to buy a new pair, the mum decided to search for cheaper alternatives – and found one online which she then decided to share.

Posting on TikTok as @kelly_louise_d, she said: “I’m sick of my daughter trashing her school shoes just two weeks after buying them.

“I saw a hack, boom, I’ve got them sorted for now.”

Kelly demonstrates using black duct tape to cover scuff marks on the toes of shoes, reports The Mirror.

The tape is just standard black electrical tape and can be purchased from various online retailers with prices starting at around £2.
