So I Had An Old Pair Of Uptowns...
 

 
And I wanted to see if I could re-furbish these kicks. I missed out on the Bred Toe joints last month image

I had these sh*ts since 2005 and used em for whatever around the house.

So here's how they started...

image

image

Then I got to working on em...

image

And here's how they came out image

image

image

And on feet... image

image

How'd I do BX?

Ready for the slaps or the love. Either way... image

Angelus Red Acrylic Leather Paint on the leather part.

Angelus Red Leather Dye in layers mixed with Sole Bright on the sole then the Red paint on the bottoms too.

Flex Seal on the bottom is bullsh*t

Don't even waste your time with that bullsh*t.

The reason I'm always buying kicks is because I hate creases. HTF did you get rid of the creases

And for anyone who's curious, I used these kicks just to experiment with sh*t.

Home made Sole Sauce does work. The bottoms started off yellow AF but after hittin em with sole sauce a few times they came out pretty white

The wet cloth and iron does work. You gotta just hit it a few times. Also, a heat gun and stretching them after stuffing the insides helps too

They look nice.

I kind of wonder if you can paint them back to their original crispy white.

Do you overpronate? My wear pattern is the same as yours.

I supinate. I'm bowlegged so I wear down the outside of my kicks.

I thought about doing them white originally but they don't have white shoe dye for the bottoms. You gotta use sole sauce to get them back to white or paint them and use Angelus Matte finish to get it to stay on and not crack.

I'm a hook up some old Adidas shell toes next. I'll post when I'm done.

Do you have any issues with external hip rotation?

Thanks for that. I have so many sneakers with creases.

Good work on that refurb too.

Looks dope, Angelos -sp paint is nice. Back in like 2011 I use to buy worn down yellowed Jordan’s n paint them with that sh*t make them look fresh and sell them for 2-3x more lol. Painted the white part of a pair of penny 1s like 6-7 years ago and they still look fresh. . A lot of work but sometimes it’s worth it.
