post #14011 of 15160

I accidentally sprayed insect repellent all over the patent leather on my bred 11 lows this past weekend. They're ruined! The pl surface is now very dull with what appears to be water spots. Don't ever get deet on your feet, peeps! If you have any tips on how to restore the pl on these then please advise me. I'll try to restore them this weekend. Thanks, Fam!

Same thing happening with my '01 cool grays but to separate sole place over a pot of boiling over so the sole can come off then apply salon care 40 to unyellow the soles. To reattach use cement glue, I use barges (you can buy at home depot) make sure the shoe is aligned perfectly with the sole and make sure you apply a lot of pressure using shoe strings to tie tightly.

I haven't heard of one person in here that has found a solution yet, but this thread doesn't get updated that much so I honestly can't say for sure

 

Idk if you've already looked around, but I tried to and found 2 things that you could look at.

 

Quote from *************:
 If the PL is chipped, I theorized masking the chipped area off and using a clear varnish to restore the clear layer that was once there. 

 

Quote from ehow:

Rips or Holes

 

  1. Find extra patent leather that you can use as a patch. This might be from an old purse, pair of shoes, or a swatch of patent leather at a craft store.

  2. Cut your patch down to size to just cover the hole or tear. Using a razor blade, scrape the edges of the patch down to their thinnest composition, so that when you apply the patch there isn't a ridge.

  3. Apply contact cement to the hole or tear and then press the patch down, fitting it exactly upon the damaged area. Allow it to dry for at least an hour or per the directions on the contact cement. Once dry, gently shine it with a soft, clean cloth.

Tips & WarningS

When the cement is drying, consider placing a flat weight on top of the patch to help adhere it. A heavy dictionary would work well.

For the 23s all you need is a little barge cement.

Drop some in and push the pieces together. Should work

So I bought a pair of b grades from the Nike outlet and didn't notice the flaw until I got home. I was debating taking them back before my receipt expires, but I'd like to "fix" them instead. So anyone with any ideas, I would appreciate it.

The gold coating on the eyelet on my taxi 12 was messed up. I thought it was glue, but it wasn't. It started like this



..now looks like this



I don't have any experience with Angelus paint or painting on shiny surfaces, or painting shoes in general. Recommendations for a somewhat lasting fix? ...besides taking them back? LOL. tia
Where can I find a replacement eyelet. Any suggestions????

Hey everyone so recently I got a 2013 fire red midsole for my 99 fire red Vs. When swapping where do I start first and it seemed like there were gaps when I first glued them that I couldn't close. I especially have trouble with gluing the toecap because of the gap it creates. What is your guys advice on this? Should I get a .5 size smaller midsole, stretch the shoes out a little bit, or reglue a certain way? Thanks for the feedback. BTW the midsole and upper are the same size. 

post #14023 of 15160
Always stuff the shoe before starting to reglue

I got a pair of 1985 Air Jordan 1s and I was wondering what the best way for storing them is. Is it also okay to put water repellent spray on them? I wanna rock em and want to keep them clean as much as possible.

Might want to hit them with a leather conditioner just to keep the coat looking good
As far as storing them, you don't have to worry about nature doing anything to the leather, only worry is midsole yellowing but that's fixable.

Repped! So water repellent on top of leather conditioner is ok to use or will leather conditioner itself do the trick?

The leather conditioner will give the old leather some life again. Water repellent shouldn't be necessary if you're not wearing them in damp, rainy conditions, but that's up to you to decide.

Alright... I might use some water repellent just to protect the shoes from spills and such. I just thought they might be harsh to be put on for the old leather.

Is that wool? I used SofSole waterproofer on wool common projects and they held up well.

Signed 1989 Air Jordan White Cement IV Midsole swapped:

Everything that I've done until now is proof that you can turn your passion into a successful business. Never in my life would I have thought to repair an original Air Jordan signed by the GOAT himself. They are also a size 13 (which is his size).
They may or may not be his game worn pair but for someone to give me the dual signed pair to repair is still unbelievable. 

I struggled to acquire the proper dimensions of the original sole because the faux leather is too brittle. I had to perform intricate measurements and calculations to ensure the fitment will be just right. 

Matching the paint color of the cement grey and the oxidized leather was a bit of a challenge in itself. Finally, after the long process of making sure the 2006 donors fit accordingly to the 1989 soles, the project is finished.

For inquiries on restorations and sole swaps please email me:

Krylon makes spray paint cans but they suck. If you want to make a reflective paint you will need to find Retro reflective Microspheres (they basically glass beads that are so fine that they feel like powder) and mix them in with the paint.
