This Dad's Hack For When His Dog Chewed Up His Shoes Is Almost Too Dad To Handle

This is almost too dad to handle.

Rather than toss the shoes, Steve grabbed a knife and created a version 2.0 of his shoes. Voila: sandals!

Lindsay said her dad explained "he really liked those sneakers because they were comfy."

"So instead of throwing them out he grabbed some scissors and a utility knife and made them into sandals so that he could still wear them," she said.


Lindsay said she thought her dad's hack was hilarious. She decided to share it on Twitter, and people thought it was peak dad.

My dog chewed my dad's sneakers so he cut them into sandals 🙄

Is there a more classic dad move?
