I'm thinking about restoring an old pair of mochas and was wondering if anyone has found a spot in Canada to get angelus leather paint.

I know you can oreder it online from several places but I'm not trying to pay $12 shipping on a small $2 item.

I would prefer somewhere in the GTA but I would most def consider ordering from a canadian website that carries it as long as shipping is reasonable.

called both... nothing

I also tried a few craft stores and a dye manufacturer. Still no luck.

No one seems to have even heard of it.

Are you painting the midsoles or the leather itself?

I dont think you gon be able to find it in canada, i searched around for a minute and resorted to ordering it off ebay cus it was the cheapest. It was like 12 bucks shipped... pretty steep i'd say but im working on restoring pure money 3's.

rubber midsoles cant be restored/repainted. looks nice but doesnt last. leather can be painted, rubber no. and even after you paint it, bending and pressure will bring back those familiar cracks.

enjoy them for what they are. age brings character. character goes a long way. looking box fresh is overrated.

yeah, I've been considering not doing it. I kinda like the look of the mochas slightly yellowed and I completely agree that slightly broken in looks a lot better then deadstock.

What about the midsole on the IV? Isn't it a foam material? or can it not be painted properly either?

I have a couple pairs where the paint on the midsoles is beginning to crack. Is there any way to slow down the process, like some sort of glaze I can put over the cracking area?

I was just looking at them again and I'm definitely gonna leave them as is.

I'm searched hard and long and I don't think any local Toronto store carries angelus, I could be wrong though.
