Back at it again with another eBay restoration! These Oreo Air Jordan 4s were looking like they needed some work, but the main point of focus would be a Jordan 4 wing replacement. In today’s episode of Restorations with Vick, we will walk you through three easy restoration tips to save used kicks!
Of course, to start any restoration or anything with a used shoe you have to give it a deep clean. For this, we relied on the Signature Shoe Cleaning Kit. Before we even started scrubbing the wing that had been hanging on by a thread came right off. Vick scrubbed the sneaker using all three brushes and the all-natural solution to clean, sanitize, and condition the leather materials.
Once the pretreatment was done it was time for the washing machine. Now these needed the washing machine to fully disinfect the interior lining of the sneaker.
Once we had a clean surface it was time to get back to business. This straightforward restoration only had a few steps. We had to repaint the midsole which included matching the perfect speckled pattern that you see on the Oreo 4s! For this, it was all about the attention to detail. From taping it up to using a toothbrush and toothpick; this step is a tedious yet necessary one!
The main part of this project was replacing the wing. However, we ran into a roadblock with this one. The original wing that Vick had in the boneyard was way too big. Lucky for Vick he has friends in the industry and was able to have the correct wings overnighted to Arizona. Shout to Alex, @flippinkickz for coming through with the spare pieces!
With the sneaker cleaned, painted and the wing replaced I’d say this eBay pickup turned around pretty nice! Stay tuned we have some HUGE projects coming in 2024 are you ready?!
Happy New Year from the RESHOEVN8R family and have an amazing 2024!

Exactor knife and a seam ripper to cut Open the stitching to remove that Plastic Piece [Music] Got the inside all cleaned up we removed All the stitching on the inside the Plastic piece was all deteriorated That's how fragile the wingk was now We're going to install the new ones First we're going to do some taping on The leather cover up everything but this Gap then we'll insert some bar super Stick on the inside of the Gap and on The wing then we'll stick everything Together [Music] New tabs are installed now at this point We can go about it three different ways The Glue is strong enough to the point Where These Wings Are not going to come Off we can leave it as is but we're not Going to have any stitching option Number two not everybody has a Patcher But you could use that machine to Directly sew this part in but there's a Plastic heel cup that goes in this area That sometimes causes a threat to rip so It's not always the most efficient way To go about it the third option is using A sewing all this part is the most timec Consuming but it'll get the job done for Sure let's try using the Patcher if it Doesn't work out we'll use this

Tool [Music] The new wings are fully sewn in thanks To the Patcher you can't even tell they Were replaced let's give it a quick Stress Test yeah they're in there let's lace Them Up before we wrap it up I'm I understand How everybody has a patch or sewing Machine to do this process like I did a Second alternative is using a sewing Goall it's much cheaper and it'll still Do the process correctly all you need is A sewing go with a small needle small Enough to go through these holes then You're going to need two pieces of Thread one for the inside of the shoe And one for the outside you stick the First piece of thread through the first Hole then on the inside you tie a little Knot with the second piece of thread and Then you go from there with the piece of Thread from the outside you stick it in You Loop it to the one on the inside and You repeat the process it's the exact Same process if you're restitching a Jordan one or Jordan 4 you stick in the Thread you Loop it in you pull it out And repeat the process all right guys That's going to be it on this 2014 Oreo 4 restoration we went over a few Different things we used our signature Shoe cleaning kit and the washing
