The Cooked Shoose line of shirts is clearly a play on the term “cooked goose” and therefore features some birld-like designs. The goal is to accomplish a feathered look using the shoes the shirt hooks up to. In this case the grey Yeezy II is used, thus earning the shirt the nickname of “Brid of Ye” (short for Kanye duhhh and a play on “bird of prey”). The nickname also describes the exclusivity of the shirt proclaiming one’s flyness and position of dominance in the fashion food chain. Be an apex predator wearing this premium all over printed shirt. It is a spun polyester American Apparel tee and is made to order. You will not find this anywhere else but here on AF1King (unless someone bites hard) and after the jump it can be yours. CONTINUE READING
With my growing line of custom sneakers and flourishing line of custom and limited shirts, it was only natural that I push the envelope to extend some of my sneaker designs and smaller scale shirt designs to larger formats. “The Feast” line of shirts feature an all over print, front and back, and use a spun polyester shirt by American Apparel. This is a premium shirt that carries a premium price. Each shirt is made to order the graphics are astonishing. Among this first run is an amazing Polo-ist shirt that showcases my love for RL and displays my collection of rare RL tags. Also among this first launch is a black version of the “$90,000″ shirt released by another designer a short time ago. The shirt is obviously directly influenced by the grey version, yet features the black and solar red Air Yeezy 2. The printing method and shirt are exactly the same as the $90,000 shirt. Lastly is my “Moonpie” shirt, a clear hookup to my Custom Foampollo One.

With my love of the sea and being drawn to the coast this summer it is very difficult to ignore the tides and of course the moon which controls them. This shoe is an homage to the mystical moon which can be held responsible for all things mystic and physic. The moon’s surface is represented with a pattern applied using my a VT-like process I pioneered. The “skin” is very durable and can withstand daily wear. The shoe is then made to glow on the outboard side and reflect light on the inboard side. These contrasts bring the surface of the moon print to life and truly embody the theme. Watch as the cratered surface comes to life once darkness falls, revealing every nuance and detail. Then when flashed by the sun or artificial light, the surface reflects with great vibrancy. Check out more images after the jump or look at the high resolution image gallery. You can also purchase after the jump or in the AF1King Shop.
This is my latest addition to the 1 of 1 Custom LeBron 9 Galaxy Foamposite series that I offered a select few who reached out to me after my “King of the Galaxy” project sold out. This version uses a grey and white base LeBron 9 Foamposite. I customized this pair with a different galaxy print and decided to make this one really pop by treating the flywire mesh portions to glow in addition to the sole, laces, and swoosh. The result is yet another well cooked and damn near nuclear dish. If you really must have a pair and are prepared to pay a premium and wait for this dish to be cooked to your specs, you email me. I may decide to launch a product listing for a bespoke session so stay tuned. There are more images after the jump and plenty more pics to come in the image gallery.
Previously I launched a mockup and pre-sale for a Superman vs. Kryptonite themed LeBron 9 as part of my Heroes and Villains theme. What I didn’t plan on was that as I made one of these, I would end up creating more a Doernbecher AJ 4 inspired dish. Well I let my instincts go and made some changes on the fly. The results of following my gut is the masterpiece you see before you. Not much has changed from the originally planned design, but the final piece has so much more impact. The blue flywire pops against the black hyperfuse, as does the volt green accents. A great finishing touch was the addition of the Superman emblem atop the LJ logo at the heel’s pull tab. Check out a few more images after the jump and be sure to pre-order a pair. You will not be disappointed with this Custom Nike LeBron 9 from GourmetKickz and trust, it is worth the wait.
If you have been following my custom creations over the past several months then you are familiar with my previously cooked up LeBron 9 “Fruity Pebbles” Custom, which was based on an ID Foamposite LBJ9. Well this go round I adapt the same theme to the Nike Zoom Rookie. This custom is very labor intensive and is reflected in the price tag. Understand this shoe is literally redone from top to bottom; nubuck upper is changed to white, sidewall orbs painted white, upper foamposite material is skinned with Fruity Pebbles pattern in my very durable VT Wrap method and sole is dyed to fade to each color represented on the blocked sole of the original Fruity Pebbles Lebron 4! The result is the above Breakfast fit for a Sneaker King! This sneaker is timed to ship for back to school, therefore an order placed now will carry a turnaround of 2 to 3 months. This hefty turnaround is due to the high volume of orders and there being only 1 Chef. If you wait to order, this will only prolong shipment as orders are not getting any lighter! Pre-order after the jump or head on over to the AF1King Shop to see what else is available. For those who doubt my sneaker cooking prowess, here is a link that shows some mockup comparisons to actual completed dishes. As many of you know, initially many releases are launched via mockup (like this image above) and hi-resolution actual shoe images are posted at a later date.
So after months of letting this idea simmer on one of my many back burners, I decided to launch this idea and offer it up to the public. A dyed sole, painted sidewall orbs, painted upper and new laces easily transform this zoom rookie into a Nerf-a-like. This shoe is part of the GourmetKickz Back to School deliveries but would require pre-order for a timely late August / Early September ship date as the current (and seemingly perpetual) backlog workload is 2 to 3 months deep due to the high volume of orders and only 1 Chef. After the jump you can purchase, the price DOES INCLUDE the base Nike Zoom Rookie, however if you already own a pair of Rookies and want to send in a pair, you can pay for just the work.

Many of you have seen the recent craze over the P.E. inspired LeBron 9 Custom that hit the web and ebay, but no one has seen what Chef’s got cooking until now! GourmetKickz has long been the preferred source for custom Nike kicks, and innovations like this keep me and my brand relevant. While I thought this was an obvious colorway for the LeBron 9 Elite “Home” base, it seems I operate on a different wavelength. If you adore the SVSM colors like I do, then you will surely want to pre-order this custom piece now to be fresh for back to school. After the jump is the purchase option if you want the base shoe to be included in your purchase. Already have the Home color and want to use it as the donor shoe? No problem, here is the adjusted pricing link >>> (pre-payment required, shipping label emailed after purchase).
With my Summer Finale shoe having been launched and already pre-selling like hotcakes, I am already Fall-minded and looking toward my new projects for Back to School. With September being the benchmark for the start of the season, one cannot ignore the significance of September 11. I decided to launch my Custom “Undefeated” Jordan Spizikes on 9/11 because in a way our nations recovery after such a devastating attack is representative of how we as a nation are quite undefeated. The custom project itself uses a base shoe from NikeID and transforms it into what you see above. There are 2 version; one which keeps the elephant print panels and has me painting them tonal olive along with the rest of the shoe and one that calls for my precise painting skills to replicate UNDFTD’s SAS Print on painted olive patent leather panels. The latter sports a translucent orange outsole and orange UNDFTD logo, while the prior sports those elements in black. There will be a total of 36 pair made, 24 pair of the less complicated elephant printed shoe, and 12 pair of the more complicated SAS Print version. All sizes are booked before construction so there will be no pairs left over. Pre-orders will be cut off on August 1st, orders will begin shipping on September 11. Enjoy!
