Chef Introduces his “Floccasins” Line

After creating several Native-American styled and Moccasin customs lately Chef has become obsessed with feathers. He has taken to the all white Air Force 1 High to continue his exploration into moccasin-inspired works with a greater emphasis on feathers. The result is the Icarus-like custom you see here. He calls this piece the “Air Force 1 Fly High” and has been naming the project his “Floccasin” line (flying moccasin) of which he has several versions. Most moccasins will only have a few feathers, just as accent pieces. Chef of GourmetKickz wanted to see what would happen if he did the opposite, placing all the emphasis on feathers. Each feather is hand cut from luxury leathers; hair on cow hide, embossed ostrich, stingray, baby alligator, crocodile, and rattlesnake. The feathers are attached via a clever strap sheath that is both removable and customizable. The wearer can reduce the number of feathers or add even more to just one side. Ivory suede lacing adds some great detail to the custom and adds drama to the already over the top flying kicks. Chef alerts us that this mainly white colorway is the first of many more to come. Future versions from his “Floccasins” line will include other sneaker silhouettes, more luxury materials, and plenty of colorways and color options. While this type of flashy custom is not for everyone it certainly is artistic!

Chef Cooks a Crazy Jordan 1 Patina Moccasin

Chef is revisiting his ties to the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal nation with a limited launch of Jordan 1 Mid Nouveau Patina Remix w/ a Moccasin twist. This custom Jordan is similar to the pair GourmetKickz launched this past spring with some subtle changes to the color blocking and one major addition, the Moccasin rear fringe. Chef compliments the patina toebox and eyestay with a patina heel sheath featuring suede fringe and patina hand cut feather wrapped in copper wire. The result is a well balanced beautiful piece of wearable art.
Chef notes that these will be available in a limited run on his website AF1King.com starting today. Also available with the kicks is a matching custom Patina sleeve denim trucker jacket.
