It is always a great day when you get to restore an iconic sneaker! The MF Doom Nike SB Dunk features a ton of amazing details and solid materials. However, with the age 90% of these pairs are falling apart due to brittle glue on the midsole and outsoles. In today’s video Vick will walk you through exactly how to reglue a sole on the Nike SB Dunk High.

To start the project we had to take care of some deconstruction. Since the glue was so brittle taking the soles off was easy. We had to be careful to not to rip the thread since we wanted to use that again at the end. One thing about this shoe is that there are hidden details all over the sneaker from the inside to the out, but they didn’t stop at that. Putting a hidden detailed print under the sole is truly a level of detail that we haven’t seen come to life in a long time! The clear bottoms were facing a little bit of oxidation after some wear and tear, so Vick relied on UV rays to bring them back to life while he prepped the rest of the shoe. Although ripping the sole off was easy the next step of the project was very time consuming.

Vick had to take a sharp knife and remove the old glue from the uppers; this process is called Skiving. Although you only saw a couple minutes of it on camera this process takes HOURS! Once that was out of the way it was time for more prep with the dremel. Now that the uppers are taken care of it is time to tackle the midsoles and outsoles using acetone and cotton balls to make sure all the old glue has been removed from every part of the shoe!

With all the deconstruction complete it was time to move onto the reconstruction. For this step we relied on Bulldog Adhesion Promoter and Barge Super Stick to make the outsoles and uppers sticky! All in all it takes a lot of glue to get all of the pieces back to where they need to be , but it is worth the time and effort that goes into it. Everything was all prepped, so it was time to make the glue tacky and stick it all together. However, just sticking it together doesn’t complete the job, Vick had to take the original stitch and stitch them back together to complete the reglue process!

Although the restoration wasn’t crazy it took days to get the perfect glue job! After the shoe was all back together it was time to bring back any color fade and condition the materials on this iconic pair of kicks! To restore the materials we relied on the Mink Oil and Horsehair Brush. This not only revives the materials, but it restores the ash you see on the materials.

All in all this restoration came out top tier! What is your favorite element of the MF Dooms?! Drop a comment!
