Sneakers from 1996 need extra care, but they still top the quality of kicks now! In Today’s Customs and Restorations with Vick he walks you step by step on how to reglue a midsole and sole to an OG Concord Jordan 11. An iconic sneaker like the Jordan 11 takes a little bit of extra care, but it is well worth it!
Due to the age of the sneaker there was quite a few steps to make this sneaker fully wearable all over again. It took a lot of prep work, a little bit of deconstruction and a whole lot of acetone. The most important part of any reglue is the prep from the dremmel to the cotton balls and all the way to the cleaning process.
One deconstruction was done it was time to reconstruct the kicks. After one last round of acetone and a quick dremmel pass on the uppers it was up to Barge Super Stick to make these shoes 100% wearable. Pro tip: Always let your glue cure for an hour or so and bond using a little bit of heat for the best glue job!
Now you have everything you need to reglue your Jordan 11s; are you confident enough to do it?!
To finish the process a quick clean and polish was an absolute must.
If you could make your OG kicks 100% wearable would you rock them or keep them on the shelf?
