i bought some FT's from my friend at the beginning of the winter. he had spray painted them the winter before and now the paint is starting to peel and my boots look like garbage. instead of painting them the same colors, what cool things has NS done to their FT's?
Ya know what the funny part is? I went through all the trouble of taping off the FT logo and the other white toe piece and as soon as I put them in the boiling water, the tape came right off. I wanted to keep those parts white but just said fuck it and when I pulled them out a few hours later, they just turned a light shade of gray. Kinda weird, but totally cool with me.
BTW, I used powder RIT dye in case that wasn't mentioned anywhere in this thread.
so you figured out how to not dye the white writing back by the heels, the white nose area, and the ft symbol? i mean, hot glue would work for the front and the ft symbol, but that back writing? that would be impossible!
Ya know, I actually taped off the logo and the top of the toe box and as soon as I put the boots in the dye, the tape fell off so I just said screw it. Five hours later, to my surprise, the shells were black but the white only turned to a light gray color.
check out this thread:
there are some really sick designs along with good directions on doing it
here are some examples from the thread:
obviously it works well for the white spks and is only good for changing it to one solid color, but you can cover parts to keep the white and make sick designs, like the NS and lightning bolts
i wanted hot doggers but feet didnt fit right in the hot doggers so i bought the booters and with the money i saved i bought 2 cable covers i got scamed on the red one but the blue one showed up and i think it looks pretty dope
If anyone saw the next years orange and white drop kicks, I have them. I'm planning on getting a white 4 tongue and just having an all white boot. I think it will look sick. Don't give a shit what other people think haha
