It’s been a while.
So I dropped a bunch of nickels on a pair of 2005 Atmos “Viotech” Air Max 1’s a couple years back, only to be able to rock them a handful of times due to the deteriorating midsoles and sinking air bubbles. Damn.
When I finally accepted the fact that they’d never touch the asphalt again, I threw them into a Shueboxx alongside the OG Atmos Animals Air Max 1’s for display purposes at our events!
Then some time passed… A whole lot of time.
And then one day I came across Jan ‘@kanotsky‘ on Instagram. Just like my fellow brothers of Canada Got Sole – I’m a sucker for the attention to detail, and as a restorer/customizer in the sneaker world you’ve got to be on that same level of detail that the shoe was made with… probably even BETTER!
I studied Jan’s work, crept his page, watched his many “pressure test” vids and scoped the sole swap work. I found my guy. I hit him up and when he found out what shoe I was going to hand off to him he was ecstatic! Like myself the Viotechs are his grails.
He used the Dynamic Berry Air Max 1 midsole/air unit as a donor sole since the air unit was a close match to the purple of the Atmos’ Swoosh. Peep the before and after pics in all it’s glory and stay tuned for on-foot shots of these!!
Jan @kanotsky is worth checking out for all your sneaker restoration/swaps!
Tell ’em Doon sent ya.
