aight so i mixed the bar keeperes friend in some water to make like paste, i didnt make mines that chunky, it was a lil bit more watery than chunky. here go some before pics of my shoes.

right jordan before


inside of right jordan before


left jordan before with right jordan prepared for cleaning
[left one was in worse condition than right one for some reason]


then i dampened the shoes and went at with a toothbrush. i scrubbed all the areas breifly for like maybe 5 mins on each shoe. mrj told me not to rinse the stuff off the shoes and to just let it sit or whatever but i wasnt really feelin the way it was lookin just lettin them sit so i rinsed the stuff off, which i will not do on my 2nd attempt, it would be better to wipe off with a damp towel so the barkeeper mix can penetrate and stay in the shoe rather than washing it away. not a drastic change but not bad for the first attempt.

right jordan after


inside of right jordan after


left jordan after



and both of them in some bayarea daylight. [kinda cloudy out]





decent results. ima try again on the same pair using two different strategies this time.
this time i will make sure the mix im using is chunkier vs being watery, and ima wipe the stuff off with a damp towel instead of rinsing the shoes out. i also got a pair of concord xi's ima try it on once i master this.

and my seaglow is in the mail. that is all.

i was wondering if anyone used it on some retro or og 9's? cuz im planning to use bar keepers friend on the toungue, but because the tougue is connected wouldnt it be a bit harder? so if anyone did it already and had success with it could post pics, and give a lil step-by-step procedure to cleaning the toungue. any type of help like that would be great.
R.A.N.C.H FOO!

buddah scrub the thick paste in as much as possible then with a damp towel wipe off any excess, from what mrj told me he scrubbed the mixture in the shoe and didnt rinse it at all.

so i tried one more time and these results are better.
i made the paste chunkier and let it sit and wiped with towel and stuff.

this is what it should look like when applying







so after all that and removing all the little excess klumps this is what the before n after looks like.






and this what they look like outside.




results are now satisfying, i did the stuff last nite but took pics this morning, shoes are still wet, ima wait for them to dry up some more so i can wipe the remaning lil chunks of mixture from the lace locks and lil crevices and what not.

next mission: concords! im expecting those to come out way better than both. i wanna know how the first guy did it on the first post, cuz that before and after is immaculate.

Good job on those XI lows my man. The mesh looks amazing.

Are you going to try Sea Glow on the soles? The results on the Vs 2 pages back was nothing short of amazing.

Is it just me or does the mesh on those xi's look kinda weird? It may just be the left over chunks you were atlking about. But they look off to me.

tOnerz21, make sure you rinsed all of the Bar Keepers Friend off of the shoe. I'd think that the shoes will be all hard if there's still some on there.

yeah like nick said make sure to get out all the bar keepers friend after, yesterday when i got home from runnin around certain spots where i left lots of excess had started turnin black but then i scrubbed away and rinsed out all the barkeepers friend and they still look as good. shoes are still wet too,

dunks: the mesh does change a lil bit, it gets a lil harder but nothing drastic

playa182: i didnt leave em in the sun, just for the pictures, seaglow is the stuff u wanna leave in the sun

for the heads that have used sea glow on the soles of their shoes, how long did you guys leave your xi's out in the sun typically? i'm thinking 3 hours will show some significance, but could the same result be achieved in less than 3 hours?

For sea glow, would it matter if it touched the other parts of the shoe such as the midsole and fabric undearth the netting, such as on the Vs ? What do you do to keep it from touching

has anyone used Sea Glow on their yellowing white midsoles and/or heel, for instance, on their IIIs, IVs, or any thing else facing the same problem? if so, how were your results and do you have pictures?

Will this work for my Jordan I navys? The sole and the Jordan Emblem is turning yellow will this reverse it? Is there any other product that you can buy in stores that can do just the same thing?
