Instead of paying 30-40 bucks for seaglow, does ne1 know alternative ways to remove yellow from a clear sole? Someone on youtube said he cleaned his bottoms with shoe cleaner from footlocker & a toothbrush? If you have suggestions let me know..

the icey part of a sole. (foams or AJV's) water can easily yellow a sole.

sea glow is really the only way to go for icy soles. sign up on nike talk, cats over there sometimes sell like half a bottle for a decent price. sometimes almost full bottles too.

there is no true way to keep your soles icey.
the yellowing process starts on the inside if im not mistaken

seaglow is the only real way to go. unfortunately results don't last if it's a pair of shoes you're wearing

Seaglow is your best option but I have personally cleared up some soles (only to a point) with a hairdryer but it only works to a point. If you have time check out some of my Restorations. The link to my page is in my Signature.

that is your best bet for getting it cheap.
there is some sellers here also that bottle it up in .oz bottles like stated before.

but if you want to hunk over retail, just buy it directly from the manufacturer , they also got smaller portions also

It's impossible to clean it because clear sole at made of ingredients that turns yellow once it is expose to oxygen and sunlight. That is how it works, the only way to make it clear again to apply a coating which seaglow does since the sole absorbs that coating.

That's why nike chose to make it blue to make the clear sole to last longer.

Look at it this way, they'll always bring back jordan anyways with retros.

seaglow will work the fastest, other methods just takes longer. if u want u can do a mixture of baking soda and toothpaste, and just scrub it in, but it's kinda a lot of work.

cons are if you get it near the glue connecting shoe to outsole, itll rip your sole off, clean off. youll havea pair of Jordan slippers. its happened to a few ppl, super funny pictures

seaglow doesn't take the soles off. that's been debunked. if you leave the shoes out in the sun to activate the seaglow, the glue on the 11's melts and that's why the soles come off. there's a whole thread on sole collector detailing this.

Have you seen him?
