That's a good buy...a lot better than my Septembers haha. Hotspot waxed his because if scuffs on the nubuck I believe, so you could do the same.


I really have no clue where to start with these lol, Hotspot help me out homie!

@ibcpirate: Got any pics of yours?


The only picture I have is on my Flickr:' http://www.flickr.com/photos/woahbryce/7611953430/in/photostream'

The main problem is the Leather cracking...but I'm going to repaint over it and hope it goes well. You can see that the leather is gone on the little bulge on the ankle. Not sure if I want to leave it as is or repaint.

so are there many here who make a living as a sneaker doctor or is it just mainly a hobby? i imagine if cobblers can make a living in this age one who repairs sneakers could as well.

lol, true, I had a change to buy cracked '99 Bred IV's for $40 but didn't go for it, the uppers were pretty bad and it was missing like 2 letters from the back tabs.

I mean, by the looks of it, you already got all the tools of the trade. Even the expensive shoe repair shop industrial machines. Build up a name and post Jordan/ nike restorations as a specialty, as opposed to just another shoe repair shop where ever. Create a clean image for your company, and things will build up.
