This is a before and after of the fix of the plastic Nike swoosh on a pair of Lebron South Beach 8 Pre Heats. I have found that this is a common problem on these shoes. As you can see the there is a defect on the plastic and I will be posting another defect commonly found on these shoes soon.

I wanted to address me sharing my techniques that I come up with. I have shared quite a few things with people that have said they were using it for personal use only and they end up posting a video on youtube on what i shared with them. If I gave up everything that i do. Then why even have a business. I have noticed alot of different people that are restoring step there game up and create there own ways of doing things and thats what I wanted to happen and for people to look at what i do and either figure it out for themselves on how to restore. My main focus is to not advertise. Im just trying to show people that Im doing something really different and get it out there. Truth be told I hardly get any business off these forums. The only forum that i get any type of negativity is on Niketalk. The reason why this business is so important to me is because I cant work a regular job anymore. I broke my back in a work related injury and Im now permanently disabled. I use what i make to pay bills and Im not making tons of money off of this at all. I love what i do and im not saying this so that anyone will feel sorry for me. Its the reality that I live with and have turned a negative situation into a positive.

Well God bless you man. You have a special talent, you are like the Sneaker Jesus raising Lazarus kicks from the dead!!!

well since this has been going slow [Insert thread jack]

ANYWAYS... Here's some work I've been doing recently for clients..

First a full restore on 2001 bred 11's, I removed both soles since they were separating and the old glue had dried out, Decreased, whitened, made the soles a more "true red" and removed lint balls and swapped laces with new ones.

Next is a pair of OG 1997 Cherry 12's (sorry lost the before pictures so they aren't the same angles :{ and lighting) but you can see the difference, again reglued soles, repainted everything etc.

to show the damage of the old "glue" that the previous owner had attempted...


some retr0brite work....

Everybody has run into the issue with the midsoles of Jordans cracking. I have posted before that when i do a midsole. I completely strip all the old paint and repaint. Which is the proper way to do a midsole. Everybody has run into this situation where they go to throw on there Kicks and notice that the midsole is cracking so they don't bother rocking them. I have come up with a temporary solution that I have been working on for awhile. I wanted to know how many of you would be interested in buying a kit that would allow you to put a temporary fix on your midsoles. This is a temporary fix that Im talking about on a Pair of Military IV's. Let me know what you guys think.

Aqua VIII left shoe outer strap before and after removal of fraying. This is a common problem which seems like its simple to just remove the fraying but along with the removal. I created a technique so that the fraying will no longer happen.
