I was just wondering if anyone ever tried sole swapping on the XIs. I have the retro Cool Grays and I also have 2 pairs of the retro XI I.Es and wanted to swap the soles to give the Cool Grays that OG look. Does anyone if this will work without ruining the Cool Grays? Thanks

Bring it to a professional shoe repair place, and ask them if its possible. Personally I wouldn't risk it but thats all up to you.

usually most Nike's have slightly glue insoles where you can remove it carefully without any tool.
Start to peel it off from the inner midfoot section.

where i could not remove the insoles was the AJ XX and Air Hyperflights. They were glued 

extremely strong and i would never force peel the insoles as it could be torn apart in the worst case.

alot of the "professionals" are terrible at gluing soles back on.  They usually come back improperly glued and have glue stains (atleast from my experiences) 
 .  Send them to this guy, hes amazing. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Renegade-Restorations/142399482443076
