Video: How To Black Out Adidas Boost Midsoles

Tuesday Jul 19 2016

Adidas has released many sneakers featuring their popular Boost-infused technology. Although various images and styles have been unveiled, the all-black Boost midsole is still hard to come by. We have created a short video tutorial on how you can achieve the blackout look with only a couple of items. Check out the list of items needed, along with thorough step-by-step instructions below.


1. Angelus Deglazer - (Buy Here)

2. Angelus Jet Black leather dye - (Buy Here)

3. Angelus Flat black paint - (Buy Here)

4. Angelus Matte Acrylic Finisher - (Buy Here)

5. Cotton balls/white rag

6. One small and one medium sized paint brush

Step 1 - Prepare The Midsole

Pour some Angelus Deglazer onto a cotton ball or a white rag. Using the cotton ball, rub gently against the midsole until you see the gloss finish on the midsole become dull; making the midsole a matte white color. (Don't use too much Deglazer and do not rub to hard or else it will eat away at your sole). Let the shoe dry for 5 minutes then proceeded to the next step.

Step 2 - First Coat Of Paint

Start to apply the Angelus Black Leather Dye using a small paint brush until the surface of the midsoles is completely black. For added precaution, apply painters tape over any Primeknit surface that you don't want painted on. (To ensure a better turnout, apply 2 coats of Black Leather Dye. Let the first coat dry for 10 minutes, then proceed to apply the second coat.)

Step 3 - Add A Matte Finish

Apply 2 coats of Angelus Flat black paint with a medium sized brush, using the same technique as in step 2. Wait 10 minutes after each coat is applied before applying the next coat. (OPTIONAL: To add a semi-glossy finish apply a coat of Angelus Matte Acrylic Finisher using the same technique as the previous two steps.) Let the paint set for 24 hours before you wear.
