If you have been paying attention to the @gourmetkickz Instagram account then you will know that last week GourmetKickz teamed up with group-buy website Massdrop.com to launch a series of custom Nike Roshe Runs. This is the first time GourmetKickz has worked on a Roshe, making this series even more special. The “drop” gave participants the choice of 8 different styles, each which had 2 options; a basic and a “kicked up” version. Nearly 40 pair sold in just about a week. If you missed the drop you can still go to Massdrop.com and request them to offer this series again. Chef is always in the Kitchen and since he now has a relationship with Massdrop, he is willing to get the kitchen rockin’ at their request. The more votes to bring the GourmetKickz Roshe series back, the more likely they will place another bulk order with the Kitchen.

On June 6th of 2009 the Net / Net colorway of the iconic Air Yeezy was released. Now 5 Years later, in an homage to the original shoe launch, GourmetKickz offers the Net Yeezy Foamposite One. Only 6 pair will be produced. All pairs are hand painted with a gloss finish. Previously GourmetKickz did not offer completely painted foamposites, that is until a breakthrough in the Kitchen occured last month. A process unique to GourmetKickz now allows paint to adhere to the slipper foamposite upper with a ZERO failure rate. The paint adhesion is perfect, it resists extreme creasing, scratching with keys and nails, general scuffs and is suitable for casual wear. The hand painted upper is two tones of Tan (net), the eyestay contains a grey tone on tone Y print, the sole is a mint color that also glows in the dark (sole protector recommended) and the mesh is also painted tan while the collar liner and sockliner are pink and hot pink respectively. You can own the size 12 shown on the picture today (#1 of 6, ships now) or order any other size and wait for them to be cooked. Purchase details after the jump. Continue reading
