While adidas has finally added color to its BOOST soles, there are still only a few options out there to take advantage of. So if you're tired of the plethora of white BOOST iterations, there is something you can do about it.

In the video above, Feature LV showcases their three-step process for blacking out BOOST midsoles. You'll need to snag a few items — listed below — but all in all, the project is fairly easy.

If you're brave enough to try, be sure to hit us back up and tell us how it went.

Items Needed:

1. Angelus deglazer

2. Angelus jet black leather dye

3. Angelus flat black paint

4. Cotton balls/white rag

5. Two medium sized fine paintbrushes

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 five 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 are 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 two 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 two 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.
