Now this is a TRUE restoration ????

Today we are going to be cleaning and restoring a True Blue Jordan 3 that dropped back in 2016…That is 7 full years of wear and tear on this beautiful colorway. You guys get to see the transformation, but how we find our restoration sneakers comes from scolling eBay until we find the most beat pair of Jordans we can get our hands on. We got these True Blue 3’s for a steal, but man were they destroyed.

As always we need to take care of the cleaning using the RESHOEVN8R Signature Kit and a couple of other tools. Cleaning the sneaker allows you to start a restoration with a clean canvas and truly get the best results. The 3 different brushes are used to breakdown the dirt and grime on the sneaker from the inside out. The natural Solution not only removes the unwanted grime, but it conditions the materials as they go to make the sneaker last longer. Since these came from eBay we chose to use the Laundry System. After all you don’t know where this shoe has been!

After the deep cleaning process and reshaping with the Shoe Tree is was time to take care of some prep-work. We’ve said it before, but prep-work is hands down one of the most important portions of a proper restoration. These sneakers had a lot of scratching, scuff and even some deep cracks in the midsole. We needed to fill in a lot of the cracks before the repaint to make the sneaker look new again.

This total restoration featured a lot of different steps, but most importantly it featured a lot of prep-work which is about 90% of a restoration. Last step of the restoration was to remove the unwanted oxidation. Oxidation comes with years of wear or simply just from the sneaker aging. When unyellowing rubber, you won’t need too much time. Typically one coat of Sole Revive and a couple hours in the Vick2000 does the trick.

After some cleaning, filling, repainting, unyellowing and couple other details, these 2016 Jordan 3’s were looking as good as they did on release day!
