Just as the Custom Inside Out Freegums LeBron 9 started as a mockup and was revealed to be an identical masterpiece, the sneaker above entitled the “King of the Galaxy” LeBron 9 Foamposite is available for pre-order based on this spectacular mockup.

In fact Chef has an entire website that allows clients to mockup their own AF1 Low in 3D and order its creation. While this mockup is not 3D it is still breath-taking and to some rivals the appearance of the soon to be released Galaxy Foamposite One.
