- I'm a bit confused because the picuture you posted has no relevance to your question.
Please specify if the midsole cracking is the paint or the actual midsole.
- RIT fabric dye. Can be found in any supermarket shoe care section.
- Yes, you would you the ironing method, but you would need to use your hand or some kind of stuffing to prop out the creases.
- I would use either e-6000 or loctite superglue. E-6000 does take quite a while to dry, but it is a time proved product and is easy if done correctly. I discovered loctite when trying out different glues on my own. It is fast drying and with about 30 second of pressing with my thumb it was dry. For e-6000, you will need some type of clamp or use of rubber bands. Also some tips for gluing: as soon as you apply pressure, make sure you have a towel ready to wipe away any excess. Yes, the stitching going all around the sole is indeed attaching the shoe to the uppers, so you won't be facing any full sole separation.
- Soap and water and a toothbrush or Lincoln EZ Cleaner.
- You will have to mix the paints buy eye. I say get one once of the color closest to red/ infrared and some black/ white/ another shade of red. The duller is added in while mixing the paints.
Nikolas, Thanks!! What Im going to do is first glue some of the hard to clamp parts with the loctite superglue.. After it dries, I will apply the e-6000 and do my best to clamp. I just cant get my head around how I would begin to clamp the heel of the shoe.
