While Tim Duncan left Nike Basketball some time ago for another brand, Nike has decided to bring back the shoe he made famous: The Nike Total Air Foamposite Max. This colorway is particularly hot as it resembles the highly coveted Pewter Foamposites. This colorway is listed as Metallic Silver and Black but also contains some bright blue accents. The buzz is out and Nike has answered the demand of sneakerheads worldwide. This should is available now at the online shop and will ship promptly on the day of release: September 30th. So get your pair now. You can see the product listing after the jump or browse all foamposites at the online shop.
Chef is at it again! Influenced greatly by this past week’s focus on the Nike Mag Back to the Future Sneaker ebay auctions, Chef has decided to make some use of a few remaining Electric Blue Foamposite Pros he has left in stock. This mockup can easily come to life, as many of Chef’s mockups do from his GourmetKickz Creator. Chef has become very good at mastering the representation of a custom in final form via a detailed mockup. This one is no exception. So if you didn’t have a few thousand to drop on a pair of 2011 Nike Mags from the Back For The Future Campaign, here is your chance to own 1 of 6 pair of GourmetKickz Custom FoaMag AKA McFoams. The foamposite portion of the shoe is carefully wrapped in a neoprene-like grey fabric very similar to that used on the actual Nike Mag. This creates a VT-like effect as seen on some of Chef’s previous fabric wrapped foams. The carbon fiber is painted to mimic the midsole of the Mag and the entire upper of the shoe is whited out with textile paint for longevity. The base shoe brings a great accent to the shoe with its electric blue hue. The final product will be extremely durable and may in fact hold a few hidden surprises. Once the size run sells off, pictures of the actual shoe will be posted. Your chance to purchase is after the jump or click here>>
Chef and a long time client of GourmetKickz partnered on this new release. The client wanted to make better use of his “Dirty Copper” Foamposite Ones as well as cover up some nasty skuffs. Chef immediately presented his latest habit of wrapping foams with various fabric with a VT – like application. His choice was faux snakeskin, and so the play on words began.. Copper + Snake + Penny Foams = Copper Head Snake Foamposite Ones. The references are numerous: the pennies or 1 cent pieces are also known as copper heads for the head of Lincoln, this is also a direct reference to Penny Hardaway and his 1 Cent logo. Therefore pennies replace the 1 Cent logos on the tongues. Brand new 2010 pennies were used as they have a more decorative back side and display the text “one cent”. A brand of copper colored bee bees came into the mix when Chef used supplies from a past project and added some more irony to the mix. The copper bee bees by Copperhead, were used in a single row at the back of each shoe and are used to assist in sealing the two fabric pieces that wrap the shoe. They are hand stitched into place very carefully and flow nicely with the overall design. All in all the client was very happy, and the result has spawned yet another unique service here on af1king.com.
