Update Video

It's been a while since we last made a video, and we're not up to full-speed yet. I still need to get my computer replace so I can actually start doing some editing. Since trying to edit HDSLR footage on a 5 year old laptop is insane.

In this episode we wanted to give you an idea of what we are working on and what we have planned. Although we haven't had any videos, we have been preparing projects in the coming months. 

The Midsole Swap Project is still underway. We haven't given up on it just yet. My brother is having issues trying to match the paint color on the Air Jordan 4 white Cement, Grey colorway. Once we figure that out, we'll let you know. In the meantime, we're going to try and finish up the Black Cement 4's as the repaint job is much easier.

The Air Jordan 3 backtab can be sauced, to an extent. At some point, you won't see any results. We received a handful of questions wondering if the backtab can be restored. So we tested it out. Unfortunately, we got decent results, but nothing amazing. Plus, if you do sauce the backtabs, you will strip the paint on their. You will have to repaint the back tabs.

The next topic are the Air Jordan 5's. We had numerous questions ask if you could restore the netting and the sole using the sauce. We tried extensively with little success. In most cases, results were minimal. There have been however, other individuals successful in getting visible results. Try to find them on YouTube.

The Columbia 11's are notorious for that yellowing patent leather and you're right to quickly ask if they can be sauced. Unfortunately, we don't know. We don't have a pair. BUT, we are trying to get a hold of one and we'll get to testing and restoring as soon as one is here.

Sole separation was the other topic we wanted to cover. During our Sauce series, many of you were concerned about the sole separation problem. We even showed you sole separated Concords. Now, to ease your mind, we separated those intentionally. We discovered that separating the soles gave more latitude with regards to our sauce restoration process. Regluing the soles back on can be challenging, however, we will put a video together for you guys.

We don't do restorations as a service! It's not that we don't want to, it's just the situation right now. However, there are a couple of restorers you should check out.
