Nike ID Air Force I Elephant print!!!

Feburary 1st, marked the return of the Nike Air Force 1 to Nike ID. I'm a big fan of Nike ID since I wear a size 14/15 US and its pretty hard to find forces in colorways I like. I own a lot of Nike ID's and once I saw that they were offering elephant print to the Air Force 1, I had to go in!

I heart 2000 Jordan XI's!

Nike Air Max 97 ID's "Kill Bill's" The way the colors were projected on Nike ID's were pretty bad back in the day. I did this pair to replicate one of my favorite movies, "Kill Bill". But as you can see the yellow I picked is actually neon green!

Restoration project: 2000 Nike Air Jordan XI Retros

While shifting through eBay, I found a seller with bad pictures of some Jordan XI concords. He only listed 2 very bad pictures, a vague description, and a Buy It Now price of $200. But I noticed he had the "Submit Best Offer" option on, so I sent him an offer of $80 for it. The Jordan XI model is one of my favorite shoes of all time (next to the Jordan IV military) and thought $80 for a rough up pair wasn't too bad. I used to restore a lot of Jordans years ago (Jordan 1-13) and thought these would be a good clean up. Here are the before pictures

As you can see, the mesh was very yellowed, had some stains on it, but the patent leather toes had no creases or cracks! There is one nick on the patent leather, but over all the shoe was in great shape. The insoles still had the Nike Air on the it, and saw a sticker of $19.99 on it. Sure I spent $80 on them shipped, but after I cleaned them up, I'm sure I can get $200-$250 for em :) I hit it up with 4 applications of RIT White Brightner, stuffed the toes, and used Magic Eraser on the midsoles. Here are the results:
