What up NT,
I recently bought a pair of OG aqua VIIIs for a very low price. They had extreme cracking so i decieded to restore them. What did i have to loose right? I used latex caulking to fill in the shoe and mixed a paint to paint it. I know the job sucks, but i think it looks better. Let me know what you think. All feedback is appretiated. btw, i still need to paint some more aqua on.

Naw, i tryed wearing them and you can see in the last pick they started to crack again. I think if i replaced all of the foam the would be, but i only replaced some of it.

After everything was over and done with, i would not recommend doing the same thing as me unless you had a lot of time and thought you could do a really good job.
