    Who would be interested in this?


    My buddy and I were discussing offering this as another custom service. We were thinking 50$ or 60$ for colors in stock, if you want something different, you'd have to pay for materials.

    No reproductions of the leather mars colorway unless it was a restoration. Not looking to ruin any pairs value or rarity.

    There's a leather shop nearby so different leathers and suedes as well as a huge variety in thread colors would be available.

    Thoughts?

    Example:
    Custom Mars Wrapping - 09D53968-9D77-408C-8766-E8AD50D050AC-10896-00000545E3C63956.jpg

    Here's the blue one redone and in progress

    Sounds like a pretty cool idea! Would love to see pics of each pair you turn out.

    fixed.

    also note that the two in the pictures are test pieces, 1st run stuff, and is going to be redone. I'll have better pics of the blue tonight if he finishes it. He's got some practice now and they are coming out great!

    As Brip could tell you, its quite the job to wrap one.

    Although I have never been a big fan of the Mars, I do like that black/red combo on them. Wonder what a smooth leather would look like as opposed to suede? Hmmmmm

    Could be cool. Do you have a crater?

    I'll see about better pics of the black/red later if I remember

    I think this requires a collabo between the Q and THE X-MAN.

    Black mars with red suede and black thread? Sick.

    Dear Qtrain,
    I have one pair of Mars with leather in non more good condition, is it very difficult to restore it "by yourself"?
    Thanks for reply
