Customize/Dye Your Spikes

Hehe. Poop.

To phrase this another way, you’ll tend to notice that a board’s topic does not mean “this board is reserved entirely for this one particular topic and all other posts deserve a real nice finger wagging.” (obviously there are exceptions such as the master buy/sell thread), but seriously, friends trash talking each other jokingly isn’t clogging up this thread, so just don’t worry about it.

Good to see you guys still posting. I think I’ll work on doing something interesting with my leftover spikes.

Also Terry and Jasari can eat poop.

Sincerely,
Oldstat

Mamba streak? That could be interesting.

I actually have a pair of Nike Zoom Speed R’s that unfortunately had the upper come off from the soles. I wanted to fix em because I absolutely love my zoom speeds but I may just take off the plate of my Zoom Distances or something of the sort.

Here’s the work i did on a new balance rc5000 upper and an og victory plate.


#346

That. Is. Awesome. :eek:


#347

Not a fan of newbalance. But Trackev that is an awesome job you’ve done there :open_mouth:


#348

I think I’m in love. Details on how you did it?


#349

Thanks guys ! Here’s a brief sum up of what i did.

First i took the og victory midsoles off, spray painted them and then put some varnish.

I then took the nb rc5000 upper off, that was the hardest part. I had to be very careful not to cut with the exacto knife.

I pulled the cushion out of the upper and then cleaned the few foam left.

At that stage i just had to glue them together.

Here is the final result, that took me numerous hours…


#350

blasphemy. are they runable? and how did you get the foam off of the upper without damaging it?


#351

I would be very interested in the answers to both of those questions.


#352

Thats just sick bro! The NB rc5000 flats are sick on their but a vic crossover is downright nasty.


#353

They are, i just need to check the durability now.
That was the hardest part, i cut the foam in the middle of the shoe until i started seeing the upper with an exacto knife. i then pulled it with my hand, that was strong but i managed to get it off !


#354

Has anyone attempted to remove the midsole of a flyknit racer? If so, how did you remove it? I’m thinking about using a heat gun to melt the glue and peel if off (I’m assuming the midsole isn’t stitched to the upper).

Planning on making a multi color flyknit racer spike with a nike victory midsole/spike plate.

edit: just checked and it think there is stitching between the upper and midsole :frowning:


#355

also, destroying a multicolor flyknit racer is blasphemy.


#356

While I’d be inclined to agree with you, if it were in the name of making flyknit victory’s, I think it would be pretty reasonable. Makes me want to try it myself.


#357

Agreed…this is what I’m going for


#358

Seeing that picture again makes me REALLY want to try this.

fake edit: I think I’m actually gonna go for it. It won’t be a cheap experiment, but if it works, I think it’ll be worth it. I’ll post updates here as I go. Sorry in advance Nolan for destroying both flyknit racers and vics :stuck_out_tongue:


#359

Awesome! I think I’m going to as well…looking forward to seeing the updates
