I recently posted a detailed mockup of a redone Cool Grey LeBron 9 in a mash-up custom that took cues from the LeBron 9 MVP and the classic South Beach colorway. I couldn’t resist actually cooking up a pair immediately. What you see above and after the jump is the tasty dish fully cooked and served up beach side. This selection can be pre-ordered after the jump or in the AF1King Online Shop. Allow some decent lead time for creation as this sneaker is my Summer Finale dish and I have lots to do before my summer break in August. Points to take special notice to on this shoe are the painted mesh side panels and the fade / stipple effect on the flywire.
Custom Nike LeBron 9 "MVP In South Beach" by GourmetKickz
Many of you might have seen the exclusive colorway Nike produced for their “Employee of the Year” AKA MVP LeBron James, the MVP LBJ 9 featuring navy blue outboard fiber and red inboard fiber, with the flywire fading from one color to the other. Well this “MVP in South Beach” is inspired by this latest exclusive colorway as well as by the recent “South Beach” LeBron 9 Elite aka “Miami Vice” P.S. 9.
The base shoe is the cool grey LBJ9, the outboard sidewall is aqua, the inboard sidewalls are flamingo pink. The flywire mesh is faded from one color to the other. The midsole is speckled with white paint flecks, and the tabs are pink. Even the insoles are customized. There is also a matching “Now Serving” T-shirt available to complete the dish! Bon A Petit!
