Can anyone help me out cleaning a pair of Flip III's. toeboxes on both shoes got stepped on and dabbing them with water just made it worse. Any help would be appreciated. PM ME.

Thanks!

What up NT? I need some serious help on three pairs of XI's I have. I've got one pair of Cool Greys where the left toe box is completely wrinkled. It's not creased, just wrinkled. I've also got another pair of Cool Grey's where it looks like the inside of the heal is starting to separate. I'm not asking if it's ok to where them, but if it is indeed separating. Last but not least, my Black & Red's carbon fiber is cracked. I don't know how. I'm not a heavy guy. I was wondering if there is anyway to seal that crack up in a non tacky way. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

The PL on my CG XI mids is also wrinkled...I asked before but no one answered. They're not cracced or creased, just wrinkled. What, if any, is the remedy???
post #34 of 12048
Agent0024. I've been asking about this for a long time and have never heard of a remedy. I'm going to try something crazy now that might ruin these shoes even more. If it works, you'll be the first to know how i fixed it.

If you mean the rubber toe is separating from the toebox, then you can use a glue (gorilla glue, shoe goo) to glue it back together. Just make sure you follow the directions of the glue and to use something small to apply it so it's a clean job and doesn't get on the nubuck.

Yellowing is going to happen any way you slice it. It's oxygenation, it's in the air. Just try to keep them in a cooler place and out of direct sunlight.

Ironing a toebox is effective in lessening the appearance of creases, but it will weaken the leather and make it even more susceptible to future creasing.

Repainting midsoles on the III's is very common, but there isn't a common method of which paint to use. Some people use shoe polishes, leather paints, etc. The most important thing is using LIGHT COATS. The paint is eventually going to crack (check your oldest Nike in the closet, it's a given), but you can prolong it with the proper painting technique.

how do you prevent it and clean it after it happened?

Some people tape the insides of their jeans (yeah I know but it works) or cuff them. Waterproofing/stainproofing before the first wear always helps to make the staining lighter later on, and sometimes it totally prevents it. Cleaning jean dye is always easiest RIGHT after it happens. Always start with water first.

Your best bet would be to get some white leather paint on your finger and swirl it over the scuff. Since it's such a small amount the paint will fill the hole more and blend in easier with the rest of the leather (unless it's a large scratch).

When 3M's scratched...it's scratched. There aren't really any tips for that that I know of, sorry.

There is no proper way to clean it, it's one of the hardest things to clean. Almost everything discolors elephant print, it sucks. Water is the best bet, trying to lift the stain with as dry of a damp towel as possible (if that makes sense). Some of the other cleaners will discolor it even worse...be careful. There is a special cleaner, Lincoln E-Z cleaner...it works wonders, just follow the directions.

Patent leather is so sensitive, once something happens to it's shape it's done. Scratches can be worked on, but wrinkles, there's really no method for it. I'm sorry.

I've also got another pair of Cool Grey's where it looks like the inside of the heal is starting to separate. I'm not asking if it's ok to where them, but if it is indeed separating.



It looks like the midsole is cracking from the inside, but the picture is kind of small.

Last but not least, my Black & Red's carbon fiber is cracked. I don't know how. I'm not a heavy guy. I was wondering if there is anyway to seal that crack up in a non tacky way. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

This happens a lot with the carbon fiber plate. It'll be fine to wear, but if you really want to fill it I have no idea what to put in it. Whatever it is, use a tooth pick or something small to make it as unnoticeable as possible.

There's a spray for darkening suede/nubuck. Look it up on Google. Just make sure if you use it, cover what you don't want sprayed and USE LIGHT COATS, if you don't the suede will come out hard and sparkly...believe me LOL.

Water and a light soap, maybe a laundry detergent. Use the detergent's soap suds and a tooth brush, with that kind of material it should work well.

Start out with water and a towel/washcloth. Don't use a brush or any colored liquids on it. A brush will leave nap on the material. If you need a deep clean, use the suds, not the direct liquid.

How can I help my XI's look sparkling? I've herd windex makes the leather crack, so any ideas? Edit: Sry I didn't see the start of the thread and I'm very tired. Any tip to get a similar effect without using those wipes.

There are specially formulated cleaners for patent leather that give it a good shine. Google them, they'll come up.

Hope he helped!image

im all messed up anyone can help out.

jordan ix white red black retros...

i've been wearing them for three days. i dont know when but today i was just looking at them and one of the two shoes lost its red ball with the jumpman on it. right above the 23. is there anyway i could buy it to re-stitch or something?

has this happened to anyone
post #45 of 12048
^^
you can not buy that buddy. I think in your situation, there is no help that we can give you because that one item is nearly impossible to find by itself. Buy a beat to death pair that still has it then you can stitch it up again.

Thanks

Just put the hair dryer on a low heat setting, don't put it too close. Just keep doing short passes near the hologram until it clears.

The hologram fogging is moisture build up, the hair dryer evaporates the moisture.

Contrary to popular belief, that method is a bad idea. The baby oil will darken it, but it will change the texture and fade more easier after being in sunlight. (Two pairs of VII's were messed up with the baby oil method, SMH)

curious does anyone use Scrubbing Bubbles to clean white shoes?
post #51 of 12048
Anybody know if spray painting all white AF1s will get the whole shoe looking new again? Because I've painted the stitchings white since they're so hard to clean and they came out good. I figured what if I painted the whole shoe white will it be okay? Thanks.

Thanks for your perspective. However, we tried allowing the questions to have their own individual posts and what we got were multiple repeat topics. Questions that had already been answered were being asked over and over. It was mainly because people didn't know that the question had already been asked and some were just too lazy to look for it.

Most of the questions that people are asking have either been addressed or can be answered with some common sense. I think the problem is that many people are looking for some all-miracle cure that will completely restore their shoes. I'm sorry, but that's not going to happen.

bbgunnnn.....I'm a little late, but thanks for the reply. As for the wrinkling on the xi's. I tried the ironing method and it actually worked. I'll post pics when I get a chance.

offline23kidd - Wow that really sucks. Not so sure how to fix that problem.

Kairito - I know some people that do restorations, and they tell me that flat white spray paint does the job, but over time depending how many times your wear the shoes, they will crack.
