Anyone have ideas on how to fix this?? I called their headquarters and they said to wear them a few times and the fringe would eventually fall straight. However, i'm afraid to wear them in public with the fringe looking all frazzled and weird!

I tried ironing them with a towel over the fringe but it still didn't work as well.

isn't the fringe suede?

If it is, it should never be heated, ironed, or put in an environment with high moisture. This destroys the suede.

I would recommend the same as what the company said, just start wearing it or leave it out in the day. The fringe will eventually straighten out.

Yeah the fringe is seude..I used low heat and the towel over it, but I stopped as soon as I saw it wasn't working, so I don't think anything got damaged. thanks for the info though. I'll try just wearing them around the house.
