1. On the midsoles they are yellow right above the carbon fiber ( first picture) how do i clean that back to snow white"
2. I have heard of rit whitener for the mesh, where do i purchase it and is it bad to touch the gray on the tounge with it
3. What is the best way to clean the patent leather to get the dirty off, and then what to put over it to protect it.
4. What do i use to make stitching white again
5. I plan on sea glowing it and have used. Seaglow before so the soles are no problem to me.


Alright here you go;
1.) I'd really just suggest some general cleaning. Break out the toothbrush and start scrubbing some dish soap and water into the midsole. It should come right out.

2.) you can get it at Giant, Walmart, basically everywhere. No it's not bad to let it hit e other colors, it's pretty safe. It will whiten whites, not change colors.

3.) wipe the patent down with a baby wipe/ wet wipe to get the excess dirt of. Then rub a bit of lotion into the PL to get its shine back. I wouldn't really protect it, but I heard armor all could do the trick.

4.) I've never gotten stitching perfectly white. It's just so small it's never worked. But try the RIT with it. It's not guaranteed

5.) don't use sea glow, it will take the traction off your shoes so you'll slide all over the place. Go with retrobrite. It's cheaper, and safer.

I bought a pair of Concords off craigslist, but the sole is starting to separate. And advice on what glue I should use to seal it up so I don't have to worry about dirt, rocks etc getting in there?

Yup, E-6000 dries clear. As does barge cement, but you'll have better results with the e-6000

Did you use acrylic paint?

I would use painters tape to seal off the area outside and inside the hole leaving only the bubble exposed and use acetone on a q-tip.

nah i just used angelus. i think it was the brush i used that left all those paint streaks, but i'm fine with it because they aren't that noticeable from afar. might redo it later using meltonian white and black. but thanks for the suggestion! i'll try that.

edit: loljk angelus is acrylic

Acrylic paint is going to flake off, fade, and run off when it gets wet. Use Angelous.

My bad I thought you meant like craft acrylic paint. You should be good. I'd recommend a finisher.

Please don't use acetone... Never use acetone as a matter of fact to clean the air unit.

 

Acetone is a high solvent and it will eat up the plastic air unit. It will make it cloudy and you won't be able to see through the air unit. Use Mineral spirits or paint thinner..

To clean the soles use a brush and some soap(without bleach) if youre talking about the yellowing you will have to use seaglow or retrobrite

As I always say. Toothbrush, warm water, and dish soap.

Don't use sea glow. You'll be slipping everywhere,

Toothbrush + warm water + dish soap.

Seriously it works for everything.

I posted it with a pair of nubuck 10s on the previous page.

I know some other restoration people who can take out any bumps and creases but they charge a lot for that. I heard that the ironing method might work but I don't want the patent leather to be damaged. So does anyone know how to decrease/flatten the patent leather? Thanks.

i dont know how to fix the patent leather but if you see what they do you can easily realize why they are not good for shoes. Shoes are made to crease and are designed so that creasing at the toe is easier for walking/runnings sake, that in mind when you stop the toe from bending the shoe will bend somewhere else and the easiest place to stuff and get rid of/lessent the effects of creasing is the toe area so i still dont know why people use them but if you like them thats fine but fixing creasing in the middle of the shoe is much more difficult than the regular toe area.
