How did that even happen? Out of all of my sole swaps, this has NEVER happened. You might as well use the white cement dub zero bottom sole.its the closest in terms on color blocking. The only difference is the inner circle block is white instead of red. Use the same size.

Hello everyone! I have just started repainting old sneakers of myself and friends, I don't know much about restoration, but I hope to learn about it here. This is my first post. Sneaker love! All I did was take my dirty ass superstar II adidas, primed, painted a few layers of white with acrylic, then penned in with a ballpoint.

Trying to do a '99 white cement 4 sole swap, but don't know how to fix this. The original bottom of the wc4's split as shown. Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this? Thanks.


You'd have to scrap that outsole and get a new one, unfortunately.

Damn Ok, Thanks for your input. Theyre a size 9.5, should I get a 9.5 or would a 9 or 10 work. If anyone sees this that has one, let me know. THanks


Gluing it would be possible trust me. But do it at the very very end. I've ran into that problem regluing soles .

Well one way is to fill the gap area with barge cement and let the glue cure and sand down the in crack line so that you can't notice the fix, or get a new bottom sole donor, a cheap alternatives would be retros or team jays with nike bottom soles, but there would be no color match for those unless painted, but will wear out when worn so if its going only for display this alternative will work, else its a waste

Very nice job. Clean up and paint look good on both of them. Creases on those fire red 5's are stubborn, I would know. Are you going to speckle the flame on the mettalic's?
