I can post pictures if you really want me to.. Its not that big of a deal to me. Im more like a little shocked. Ive worn them less then 15 times and they are starting to yellow. I dont care about creases on my shoes. I just dont know how I feel about the soles yellowing on the 11s. I just ordered the new 11 lows and I love the way they look. I got them for $147 which is a steal but they will yellow to.  I dont have to many 11s in my collection so this is a little new to me. You guys even care? you guys do special stuff to prevent that. Or can I clean it when it gets worse. I love my space jams they have a special spot in my heart. I might have to get another pair idk!

If the sole of the Space Jams are like the sole of my Metallic Pewter foamposites, then i got a few years before the soles should yellow. I wore my foamposites to play ball and work in them. I bought my foams in 2010

man, yellowing on the 11 soles is wack. I know it happens to all pairs, but still. I don't think the yellowing is related much to wears as much as it is to just aging and oxidizing from what I've heard.

interested in knowing if there's a way to prevent/slow it down, or the best way to clean it up when it happens

It's related to both wear and environment.

Space Jams are the only 11 that can pull off the yellowing imo

WATER/MOISTURE SPEEDS UP THE YELLOWING PROCESS... TRY NOT TO WEAR THEM IN WET CONDITIONS....

AND WEARING THEM OFTEN ALSO SPEEDS UP THE YELLOWING.

Yep wet and humid conditions speeds up oxidation. That moisture on the wet ground will bond to the the clear sole and turn it colors. So this is why I only wear clear sole or white sole shoes on dry concrete. I will pick something else out of the collection on any other day

Do you guys have any tips for cleaning the bottoms if moisture is a No-No?

 

Just a wipe with a dry cloth?

Nah you still need water and soap for cleaning the soles. You just need to wipe dry and not let the moisture sit.

 

It's the combination of dirt and oxidation along with the water that turns it yellow. That's why they bottom of the sole will turn yellow even though the sides may still be crystal clear. So I clean the the sides and edges of the bottom after each wear.

Nobody really can see the bottom of your sole.

I like how DJ Delz/Sneaker Addict on YouTube said if the outsole of your 11s don't yellow then it's fake lmao!

 

It only took 2 months of normal wear for my Space Jams outsoles that surround the traction pods to start yellowing.

LMAO funny comment by DJ Delz but anything white or clear will yellow. That's nature itself. It doesn't matter if its paint on a house or headlights on car. Oxidation will set in eventually no matter what it is.

The odd thing is I have other clear soled Nike kicks that take far more time to yellow. My XXX's are still going strong.

And Reebok has produced blue tinted clear soles that don't yellow at all.

Man that tint on the Answers is dang near royal blue though. It definitely will take a while. But the crystal clear soles will yellow. I've seen DS pairs of answers lows that yellow. Oxidation is oxidation. Limiting air and moisture is all you can do. And that's an oxymoron in tearms of jordans 2 to 6 because they need air and moisture to prevent cracking lmao. Balance is key...gotta wear them sparingly. That's why I double up on my favorite clear sole shoes. Heck I got 3 space jams...its my grail.

My 2014 Concord lows are now starting to yellow but mostly on the bottom. The sides are still blue and I have worn them about 30 times since I got them. When I don't wear them I clean the bottom and put them back in the box and in my bedroom closet. The dark cool closet help slow down the yellowing. I haven't worn my 2016 SJ yet but I'll see how they hold up once I wear them. My 2009 pair yellowed faster than any other 11 I have. Those thing yellowed after wearing them 15 times. Less than three months. Must be the humidity and hot weather in Houston. The Cool Greys and Concords were Icy for about a year than they started yellowing.
