Lindsay Onuffer is a 20-year-old college student from Pennsylvania. She says her dad, Steve, is a handy guy.

"He is always building stuff and fixing stuff," she told BuzzFeed News.

Recently, Steve's skills came in handy when the family dog, Sam, chewed up a pair of his shoes. (He only looks innocent.)

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?

@Lindsay_Onuffer @brendan10120 If this isn't a classic dad move I don't onow what is

Thanks for introducing us to 3017, dad!
