I think some of them actually know what they're talking about..

I remember being at the State Fair one day years ago when the Flip 3s came out.. I was wearing them around and me and my friends went into the expo building. Some guy was in there with a whole booth set up for shoe cleaners and he recognized my shoes immediately and yelled at me to get my attention.

Started saying stuff like "You need special cleaner for that bro and we got it. Ain't gonna find it anywhere else." I didn't believe that he knew what he was talking about until I saw his display of Black Patent 1s and OG KO 1s sitting with no laces displayed on a rack. SQUEAKY CLEAN AND SHINY. I talked to him and he talked to me about how elephant print needs to be cleaned correctly otherwise it'll begin to wear out.. the same goes for nubuck. All of you probably know this already but I was a youngin back then so it was news to me.

He even offered to clean my shoes of anything I wanted for free as long as I bought a cleaner from him.. sadly I didn't buy from him, but it just goes to show that some of these shoe cleaners are little restoration gems. smiley: wink

No one is misunderstanding. Except the guy that even bothered mentioning maybe. Some people are so touchy, you cant say ANYTHING at all. How else are you supposed to easily describe someone? He has black hair? He has both of his eyes, and a nose? He's Asian. Because, he's Asian! That narrows it down. Anyways, I've had space jams outsoles reglued by a shoe repair about 6 years ago. They came out good, but knowing what I know now, next time I'll do them myself maybe. I fixed a Pair of original 14's I have that we're separating myself. Came out Perfect. Talk to the repair shop first, see if they are confident with sneakers. And ask for some kind of guarantee before you have them touch your shoes

Took my og white/red 12s in today to get the outsole reglued. Well see how it turns out, I just don't trust myself with any type of repair, I always seem to make it worse.

All they do is fix and repair dress shoes and they never know what to do involving Nikes and Jordans.


ha ha
you must have tried the same places i did

some of the cobblers see a $5 pair of pro-keds from their youth no matter what sneaker you bring in

IN my experience the cost associated with the repair can in some case you could replace the shoe on your own. Also a lot of so called repair shops say one thing and produce something of lesser quality. As we know a shoe that even warranted the repair to begin with needs precision accuracy and attention to detail. I wouldn't trust someone else to do it especially if they are not a sneakerhead.

only thing i've brought to repair shops is XII's to re-glue the soles.

from experience they use way to much glue even when i tell them not to. brought about 4 pairs in total. on the last pair i brought i told them not to glue the strips on the center to the carbon plate and they came out great.

oh and that shoe goo is x_X

once your shoe gets to the point of needing to go to a repair shop, you should probably just stop wearing it.

This is false.

I had a pair of original XI's i was saving for years, and the 2nd wear they started talking. Mint condition shoes dont need to be thrown away because the glue has dried out and can't hold anymore.

Do you know if they can restore yellowed patent leather? Their pics on their FB page seem pretty legit
He does a great job, but charges too much, IMO

I got a quote on some 00 SJs.. Both shoes need seaglowed and the sole on 1 shoe glued back on. The whole sole isn't falling off, just under the toe needs re-glued and he said $180 plus I cover shipping both ways..lol

Damn near buy a new pair...

If he would have said $100 + Shipping, I would have did it. Hell, it's probably $12 worth of glue and seaglow combined...

Just got my 12s back... they did a good job overall but did use a little too much glue and there is some on the carbon plate. No biggie, as long as I can wear em I'm straight! Only set me back $20
