John Manalo is a local Bay Area sneaker restorer and his specialty is midsole swapping.
I’ve been a fan of John’s for a while now and his work is some of the best I’ve come across. He can pretty much swap midsoles of any shoe without issue, even sample pairs — like this OG Air Jordan 14 Low White/ Red sales sample from 1999. However, it’s not every day that you come across a game worn and signed pair of kicks to sole swap. Let alone a pair that was game worn by the G.O.A.T. himself during the 1991 NBA Finals.
If you want to see a really awesome sole swap on a piece of Air Jordan History then check out the video below. If you like what you see you should head over to John’s channel and subscribe as well. As mentioned above, he’s one of the best in the business.
