Just picked up these Jordan 1 OG's (Original 1985 release) at a garage sale. Paid $100 for them.


What can I expect to get for them in this condition? Any tips for restoring them?

Thanks

are you sure you can even wear these anymore? The sole might just tear off once you but them on.

Haha.. I just rocked them, they feel fine. Cleaned them up a little. Tried to be real gentle.

The ankle portion is like literally 'crunchy'.

Sole seems fine, just good amount of yellowing.

I was reading about this "Sea" stuff. It was 2 words, I forgot... Meant for restoring soles back to white. It's what everybody uses I guess. Going to try that before I do a whole sole swap.

Thanks guys

Look up restoration videos... Not sure what these would be valued at but you definitely got a steal. I'm thinking they're worth at least 250 in this shape, but like I said, I'm not that knowledgeable on the prices of Jordans.

This and some Jason mark and use the cloth and iron trick to remove the easy to see creases and you should have some life left in them. Also get them touched up a bit with some paint. If you know of any shoe repair shops in your area check them out.

You definitely got these for a steal. I wouldn't use sea glow because leaving them in the sun would probably weaken them. I would just clean with Jason Marks
