2. Is there a particular pair that you have restored that you are most proud of?- Im generally proud of all my pairs The best part is giving them back to the owners and seeing how happy they are. The pair I was most proud of was a pair of black cement 3s that looking due for the bin but after a good clean inside and out followed by complete repaint and then detailing turned out mint. I paid $40 and sold them for $160.
3. Are there specific tools you favour when restoring?- Anyone who has spoken to me about sneaker restoration knows that I hide no tricks and will tell everything but my best tool hands down would be a small 5 buck file from Bunnings (shout out sneaker revive Sydney for that)
4. What has been your most challenging restoration?- When I first started trying to learn how to do it, I destroyed a pair of my other half Gemma's kicks in the process. She forgives me now as i've helped her collect some of the most sought after Air max. Apart from that, James from BFNZ gave me his Jordan 4 cool greys which came in pieces, a lot of glue, a lot of time, a lot of Heineken and we brought them back to life
Can you please give us a step by step on a restoration including some pics? sure sounds good, ,These are a pair of super rare Jordan 4 black laser in a giant size 16, covered in mold, missing paint, trashed then returned to a solid 8/10
