There is an option to use KicksWrap Cream in the natural flow of sneaker maintenance to bring out the luxurious and heavy feel of leather sneakers such as vintage NIKE AIR JORDAN 1.
By the way, do you have a clear understanding of the "appropriate amount of cream" and the "sign of permeation" and "gloss after polishing" that can be seen from the leather?
This time, I would like to use the AJ1 bread made in 1994 and explain the correct usage and the above step by step with videos and text.
The appropriate amount of Cream should be about "a thin 1-yen coin" on your fingertip.
The amount of cream should not be too little or too much to prevent uneven coating and oil from coming out on the surface.
Put it on your finger little by little and apply it.
Whether or not the applied cream has permeated the leather is judged by looking at the dullness of the leather.
As you apply the cream on your finger, the surface of the leather will gradually become dull and damp.
You should hear a squeaking sound when you rub your finger against it.
If you go that far, the cream will firmly permeate the leather.
Also, there is a small trick to eliminate uneven coating.
Cream is constructed by sewing (combining) several small parts.
Rather than just vaguely spreading the cream, you can finish it evenly by consciously painting each part separately.
The parts with lace holes are not painted, so please compare the dullness of the painted parts.
After applying, use a towel, cloth, or Mouton Mitt to polish.
Mouton Mitt is a product that was created with this type of polishing in mind.
The leather looks dull after applying the cream, but as you polish it, it starts to shine.
The trick is not to rub too hard.
It is completed by polishing until the luster is evenly applied with the strength of stroking with a hair.
For those of you who didn't know how to use Cream, please refer to it.
By maintaining the leather, the material itself can be a substitute for 20 to 30 years and beyond generations.

We also collaborated with sneaker comedian "Del Piero Ishida" on Youtube and filmed about Cream and Mouton Mitt, so please watch it.
