From Dirty Copper Foam to Copper Head Snakes | VT Style Fabric Wrap

Custom Copper Head Snake Foamposite One by GourmetKickz

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.

After the jump you can view more pictures and purchase this service. Read the details, as the listing is for the job only, you provide the shoe.
