Sneaker restoration is an art form that has been mastered by very few. The process of “sea glowing” and cleaning uppers has been one of the most oft-discussed topics on sneaker forums for years, but those who have managed to hone their skills have created some nice side-jobs for themselves – like RefreshPGH in the Pittsburgh area. He’s detailed some of his past projects in side-by-side format, with some dramatic before-and-after shots (like the Air Jordan VII “Hare”) that provide enough evidence that he’s good at what he does. Check out some of the restored kicks below and if you’ve got some gems that could use a bath, hit up RefreshPGH for an inquiry.

@Mike03Kap I know man I been praying for a sneaker event in the burgh, I don't think people outside of the burgh know we have a big shoe culture here

@geeman4life @youngballcoach Yea thats what I thought, I just never see Sea Glow anywhere in my area. Maybe I'm looking in the spots, where do they normally carry Sea Glow? Thanks again bro

@Young_Doodie @Mike03Kap No my man the burgh is not known for a shoe culture but a mean football team..but I wish there was a way that the burgh can get on the map and have a nice shoe event..Cause I wouldn't mind it at all meeting other people who have the same interests in shoes as me..And get some new shoe connects!!

@youngballcoach @geeman4life not sure where your at, but out in Northern Cali TAP Plastics carries it. So something similar around you should have it.

@Mike03Kap @Young_Doodie If y'all haven't been already, you should check out Kicksburgh 2013 put on the by guys at CMU that did the Sneakerology 101 course. The event was pretty big last couple years, i.e., it took up an entire gym, with a lot of vendors and curators showing off their collections. Will probably be going down the first weekend in May.

@ZacIsNug_BP maybe it's just because you look at different side views of the sole (inside vs outside)...
