Sneakers can be collector's items, but at the end of the day they are meant to be worn — even if they are worth a lot of money. That was definitely the case for this particular pair of "Blink" Nike Air Yeezys. Literally worn into the ground, the 2009 Kanye West release was in unwearable condition with crumbled midsoles, separated outsoles, and dirt everywhere.
Even though they looked like they were headed to a trash can, Youtuber and sneaker restorer RetroSnickers was able to breathe new life into them. The restoration process included a full cleaning, midsole swap, paint, and removing yellowing from the glow-in-the-dark outsoles.
Remember that as beat up as your kicks get, there is always a way to keep on rocking them. Watch this pair of Nike Air Yeezys get fully transformed.
