ya'll can roast me idgaf

call me hypocrite

call me whatever

 

i got a line on a pair of chicago's and i'm gonna stain the midsole yellow and slap on some cream laces

fuck ya'll

yes

I'm intentionally aging the shoes

 

I'm using the Saloncare cream 40 and ivory candle dye method

 

saloncare 40     80%

ivory dye             20%

 

i'm hoping this is the result

 

Haven't posted here in a minute, but wanted to share my latest pickup. 1994  AJ1 Chicago. Switched out the black laces with a cream pair to match the  midsole. : Sneakers

At least in the 90s anyway. Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. The Saucony Jazz were the only thing going to rival the color ways of nike dopemans.

 

This is an interesting topic in and of itself. Regional popularity of shoes and also regional nick names for shoes. When I first moved to VA people were calling low cut AirForce 1s DCs. In the midwest we called them OldSchools.

interesting thought on something that's been on my mind lately

don't scoff or laugh or anything

 

sustainablity

 

The question is this: If I am able to make my own shit, why not just do that?

 

So I started looking up how to make shoes and came across an entire community of people making their own nikes.

fucking rad

 

So I dug deeper (it wasn't that deep) and found a class and a shop that sells the tools you need to make your own favorite nike silhouette.

The shop had a fucking kit for Jordan 1 highs: either the OG or the modern version.

 

The shop is called Xylar Studio and they sell the pattern, last, wings punch, but, they don't have the soles

 

The soles you can get from etsy or some other site that makes rubber soles for any shoe you want.

Most not all, but pretty much all shoe brands use Vibram.  Vibram is basically the equivalent to Bosch is to the automobile industry.  

I use to buy there rubber sheets, but I have found that spending a little more money on specific industry grades of rubber lasts longer.  However, I am not making my own outer soles, just adding to them for wear and tear protectors.

I'll be using the actual nike printed jordan 1 outsoles

They're pretty generic and probably is used on multiple general release model nikes

 

I'll try to put up links for actual nike printed outsoles.

ok so i think i spent almost fucking 6 hours looking for some goddamn jordan 1 soles

 

short of going to china or alibaba (LMAO) to order the jordan 1 outsole in the thousands of units, there's no fucking store that sells individual outsoles

 

so i looked to vibram ( @ndv yea yea rub it in) for cupsole construction

 

welcome the strigthon sole from vibram
