How to Remove Stitching on the Toe Cap: AJ4 Midsole Swap ProjectBefore removing the midsole & sole, you will need to remove the stitching on the toe cap. Now, as difficult as this might sound, removing the stitching is actually quite simple. All you need to do is have a small flat head screwdriver to do the trick. What you will do first is remove the insole to locate the loose strand of rope. Afterwards, you will pry the stitching on the toe cap. Pull the loose end all the way and then pull the string inside the shoe. For more info, watch the video.

4/22/11 Sneak peek behind the midsole swap projectWe have already made major progress in the midsole swap project. What we believed would have been a difficult aspect of the project, was actually quite simple; removing the stitching on the toe cap required a little bit of ingenuity and finesse, but we were able to remove it without damaging it. What you might not know, is that we actually tried this on a test shoe. Go figure. The equipment you see in the picture is a heat gun. We will provide details on it later. In the meantime, you can enjoy the pictures.Picture of heat gun warming up the glued regions on the Military 4's.Another image of the heat gun applied to the Military 4 ...

4/21/11 Introduce Air Jordan IV Midsole Swap ProjectBefore we get started on our project, we decided to do a comparison between the 1999 & 2006 Air Jordan 4 Retro (Military Blue vs White Cement). Some of you might think we've actually done every type of restoration out there, but we have actually yet to do a midsole swap. Our biggest concern is seeing whether or not the donor's midsole will fit on the recipient. Yeah, I know; it sounds funny.In the picture shown, you can see how bad the Black Cements are doing. In case we get any questions, we will be painting the midsoles of the Military Blue's to match the color of the recipient.Link to Video: Air Jordan IV Comparison
