Custom LeBron 9 Joker by GourmetKickz Jokermans

Why So Serious? Well maybe you need some Jokes Man! Get them in the form of these “JokerMan” Custom LeBron 9’s by your truly, Chef of GourmetKickz. Some may snicker and sneer at this shoe, but that’s the point isn’t it? And in all honesty, who didn’t have something slick to say at the site of the rather unusual Joker? That bright green hair, that purple jacket, the green waistcoat, fancy braces, amazing hex pattern shirt, Ferragamo shoes… what a dresser! So maybe you can’t pull off the same look, but surely you can pallet a dish that is concocted of all the aforementioned ingredients! The final dish is pictured and cooked extra well done if I don’t say so myself. Have a healthy helping and rejoice in these kicks as the jolly Joker would. Break necks while doing so, figuratively of course, let’s not immerse too deep into the brutal bozo of bedlam.  Cop a pair after the jump or head on over to the AF1King Shop to see this new custom on the chopping block and many more.

Nike Vs. Chef Compete in a “Game of Death” | Custom LeBron 9 Elite Taxi

Custom LeBron 9 Elite Game of Death

The LeBron 9 Elite Taxi colorway is dope, but is it really deserving of the “Bruce Lee” nickname that some have assigned it? NO! Chef has tossed some ingredients into the pot and cooked up a dish more aptly named for the founder of Jeet Kune Do. The custom “Game of Death” LeBron 9 Elite. This shoe is simple yet effective in achieving its goal…. kill the OG Taxi! Most notable the upper has been changed to black, the midsole gets a makeover to yellow with red flecks, and the swoosh is bloodied. Head on over to the AF1King Shop to cop these now or add them to cart after the jump.

Custom LeBron 9 Galaxy Foamposite “King of the Galaxy” Revealed

Custom LeBron 9 Galaxy Foamposite "King of the Galaxy" by GourmetKickz

Back in mid February I decided to launch a product on this site with just a mockup image, something I often do. However, never before has a mocked up design been so well received than this Custom LeBron 9 Galaxy Foamposite which I dubbed the “King of the Galaxy”. This image set is from the first 8 that were shipped in the run of 24 pair that sold out. Due to the high density of orders placed in such a short period of time, the series had to be constructed 8 pair at a time to ensure quality and refined finished product. A new logo was also designed in honor of this launch. The logo is a combination of the LBJ logo, my own GourmetKickz iconic logo, and the NASA logo. The galaxy print used is from NASA’s image archives. It is much more detailed than any “galaxy” print any airbrush artist or ink process can emulate and in fact, what everyone refers to as a galaxy is actually a nebula. Enjoy the images below and if you are one of the fortunate clients who purchased, take my word, your pair will be arriving soon. Continue reading

Bon A Petit! and oh…. GO BROOKLYN! Continue reading
