Hi, so I’m a avid Air Max collector and most of my restoration work revolves around oldish Air Maxes around the 2005 - 2018, I think the materials and craftsmanship was just better back then. Anyway, i can’t for the life of me figure out how to not get any hairline cracks in the midsoles of my projects. I just don’t get it, I think I prep ok and paint pretty well but yet I can’t get a full day out of any shoe I do without it cracking a little and it’s frustrating since I’ve been trying since 2018. I have good brushes, I use Angela’s paint I think I put down thin coats and usually do 5 - 8. I prep with Angela’s Deglazer and sand the midsole a little bit from 400 grit to 800 grit and finally to 1200 grit. This time I tried using a adhesion promoter (Bulldog) and sealed the paint up with Angela’s Matte finish (2 coats). Any help would be appreciated!
