concords restore ftl vip 3 How To Restore Your Air Jordan XI Concords

The release of the Air Jordan XI Concords sent shockwaves across the nation. Chances are your local news-station reported a story on the release, which is proof enough that kicks are no longer a ‘sub-culture’, but rather the mainstream. What makes the Concords so special is that it was the first pair of Air Jordan XIs (deemed one of the greatest Air Jordans ever) that Michael wore, and it’s been eleven long years since we last had the opportunity to cop a pair. If you’re still holding onto your ’00 Retros or have put the new ones into rotation, you’ve probably sustained some dirt, yellowing or worse, but here we have a nice and simple way to refresh ‘em enough to get them back to their neck-breaking state. A few weeks back, we worked with Foot Locker Unlocked on a great restoration DIY feature with before-and-after comparison shots. The feature is viewable only to those with Foot Locker VIP Access, so in addition to seeing the Concord cleaning tips story in its entirety,  VIP membership will also provide you with special product info and promotions and exclusive access to products and events. Head to Foot Locker Unlocked now to become a Foot Locker VIP and to learn how to keep your Concords eternally crispy.

It's sad Jordan brand hasn't found a way to prevent this from happening as much......i always fear buying a pair of 11s (space jams, concords, cool greys...etc *ice bottom type shoes*) for the fact that they are destined to do this regardless. The playoff 11s are the only ones that really..you don't have to worry about this problem..mainly because the bottom is red.....i wouldn't mind having a pair

I like how they mention the release of Concords being on local news stations.....that's true but it's only cause people were rioting and swinging on each other like idiots.

They are not fixing the yellowing it just about how to clean the mesh!! If u go to the site they almost still look the same but it is not a guide to clean yellowing. I got a pair of DS 00 and they havent yellowed . I have been storing them in the basement.

HOW TO RESTORE CONCORD XIs....... survey says "BUY NEW ONES"

I've also heard "Bar Keepers Friend" works great on the upper white mesh as well. As far as yellowed soles "retrobrite" works alot faster than "sea glow" and you can make it yourself instead of ordering sea glow. I've had good results on a pair of 2001 space jams with retrobrite.

No matter what you do they will yellow, my 00s are yellow and my 11 will yellow eventually. you can restore the soles, but they will yellow again. Wear your shoes ppl, when it yellows the shoe still looks great(Just don't let it brown lol)
