Topic: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

What's going everyone, my name is Chase, I moved to Australia about a year ago from the United States.

I used to restore sneakers over in the states for people, and ever since I moved here, I found that there aren't a lot of people who offer this service.

So I figured I'd make a profile and offer up the service to anyone who may be in need.

I only work with Air Jordan 3 and 4 for now and my angelus paint colors limit me currently to these shoes

Air Jordan 3: Fire Red
Air Jordan 3: Black or White Cement
Air Jordan 3: Cool Grey
Air Jordan 3: Harbour Blues
Air Jordan 4: Black Cement (Bred)
Air Jordan 4: Military Blue
Air Jordan 4: Fire Red
Air Jordan 4: White Cement


I am also getting back into clearing out yellow soles on 5's, 7's, 11's and Foamposites.

if anyone is interested at all in having their midsoles restored feel free to hit me up with questions, I am also willing to give tips on how to do the job/color mixing/cleaning/decreasing toe box/ etc etc etc.

email me with any questions! My email should be in my profile description

Hey man, welcome to SF.

You got any examples of previous work?

If you need me, I'll be in space.

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

I do, I tried to link my gumtree ad up, but it did not allow me to, as I obviously do not have 50 posts yet. let me figure out how to upload a picture to this thing and I'll get it up

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

ah well that's lame, it isn't even letting me post pictures of my work.

if you add me to facebook you can see pictures there. anyone is free to add me!

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

post the urls but space them out somewhat so it doesnt get recognised as a url. someone will fix it if they're on topic.

This is a finalized pair of black cement 3's that I did about 2 weeks ago, no before pictures unfortunately as I was way to excited to get started on restoring shoes again. Very sorry about that

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

and the toe box looks rather odd in that BC 3 photo, it is because I was also decreasing the toe box, and it is stuffed with plastic bags.

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

got a few pairs of shoes I'm doing next week.

1 pair of 2008 CDP Black Cement 3's
and
1 pair of 2007 Fire Red 3's

I'll be sure to hit this forum up with more pictures of my work, before and after.

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

do sole swaps?

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

unfortunately no.

I trust my hands with repainting midsoles and decreasing toeboxes, but I have never attempted a sole swap, If I ever do I will add it to what I am capable of.

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

I meant to add that I dont trust my hands at tearing apart the entire midsole

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

Any chance you'd add DTRT IIIs to the list? The midsole on those falls off like a bitch!

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

Just let me work with some color mixing and I will definitely be able to.

the hard part about midsole repainting, isn't the painting, it's getting the colors perfect.

I also order my paint from the states and it takes a while to get here as soon as I get that DTRT color way down I'll be good to go

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

not sure if this should be in the customs section or not...

All the gear and no idea.

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

tbh this thread would have more attention in the sneakers section

u r spending most of u lifetime on ur feets man, r u insane or u r Wikipedian guy especially like protecting ur beautiful feets??

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

I can post this in the customs section if you'd like

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

^^ minhyy thats why I didn't move it (don't worry chase)... its kinda a custom thing, but it not (I am assuming youre just returning to new look?).
Either way good thread and getting lots of interest.

...if only nike would learn a thing or 2...

All the gear and no idea.

Re: Air Jordan III/IV Midsole restoration

yeah I mainly try to return a shoe as close to dead stock as possible.

I was in line at Nike Sydney city for the black cement 4's in November, and the amount of people that hadn't even heard of sneaker restoration, let alone attempting it is what made me want to start doing this again for people.

thank you!
