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?


Na i decided to just do straight silver for a cleaner look. I already put a few finishing coats on as well. This was my first restoration project I am pretty proud of my work as it was very time consuming and tedious applying the tape.

The toe box creasing in the fire reds as you mentioned is brutal and to avoid chipping the paint as they have been creased for 6 years i did what i could and let them be. I was surprised how ironing out the metallic s went over better

Did you do any repaints at all? All I see is general cleaning from the mud.

Not on the militaries or fire red's, they didn't need any paint.

They look pretty nasty. How did all of that dirt get on them without any paint cracks?

I came across a pair of Inuits for 30 bucks locally. Laces were frayed, the piping was as well (which I dont mind), they were skated once, and the scuffs that were attempted to be filled in with a Sharpie. I love these damn things.

He said his friend wore them to an outdoor Halloween event or something.
