Purchasing goods from AF1King should be a pleasant experience. As the owner and operator, I aim to provide top notch customer service. Therefore it is important that my clients understand that there are two distinctly different types of items here on

Deadstock Exclusives

Exclusive Nike released sneakers listed on this site will normally  ship within 2 to 3 business days. If a sneaker is listed as a pre-order, it will not ship until the first business day AFTER the release day. If there is a high demand for a pre-order shoe assume a high volume of orders have been received which can lead to slower shipping times due to processing.

  • There are no refunds, no returns, and no order cancellations.
  • Allow ample shipping time before sending a query.
  • Confirmed paypal shipping addresses only.
  • All shoes are shipped with either USPS or FedEx and will require a signature.
  • All shoes are 100% Authentic and 100% Deadstock.
  • Fraudulent paypal claims will be aggressively challenged and met with arbitration.

Custom Sneakers

A large majority of the sneakers sold on this website are customized by yours truly Chef, under my brand name GourmetKickz “food for the sole”. Some people do not understand what the difference between a customized sneaker and a Nike released sneaker is, please google for a definition then come back. If you frequent sneaker blogs like NiceKicks and SneakerNews then you are familiar with my work.

  • All sales are final.
  • Wait times apply to all custom sneakers unless otherwise noted.
  • Wait times vary from design to design, read each listing for a best guess of that shoe’s wait time.
  • Excessive rushing or rude emails will lead to a transfer of your order to a grab bag of all over printed t-shirts.
  • Fraudulent paypal claims will result in a shipment of t-shirts in an effort to hold up to my “final sale” policy.
  • Shoes are included in the price unless otherwise noted.
  • I do not copy other artists’ work.
  • GourmetKickz are not to be purchased for the sole purpose of resale.

Apparel & Accessories

All sales of apparel and accessories are final unless we made an error or you received a garment with a MAJOR* flaw.  All the garments sold on this site are CUSTOM MADE to order unless otherwise noted, therefore small variations design may occur during the item’s creation. Please read more about the dye sublimation process to better understand what to expect from all over print dye sublimation apparel. Some garments are painted or made by hand. As can be expected with any hand made item, the actual final product may vary slightly from the image shown on the product page you are purchasing from. If you have doubts about what the actual item will look like, please use the contact page to request more information. We stand by our “satisfaction guarantee” but we do not accept worn goods or items that “do not fit” since we offer size charts.  We also do not accept returns of garments that fall within the parameter of the described variations. All SHIRTS take 7 to 10 business days to arrive to you, so you will receive your shirt in 2 weeks or less. Other garments may take a little longer, so please read the product page to get a better idea of how long it will take for your item to reach you. Tracking is emailed via paypal as soon as the garments are completed and handed over to the USPS or FedEx. For more info please visit the following pages for more info:  Cotton Tee Info Page , Dye Sublimation Tee Info Page , Hand Crafted Sweatshirts.

DeCreaseRs normally ship immediately. At times they are on back-order but ship as soon as they are back in stock. If you order in between shipments they may not arrive for up to 2 weeks.


All order are shipped via USPS. Priority shipping is often used for orders over $100. Fedex is normally used for shipments weighing over 10 lbs. Tracking information is updated in Paypal, an email is automatically sent to you from paypal when we update tracking info. If you miss the email, adjust your spam filters or log into paypal to view the transaction details and tracking. Orders over $250 will require a signature. International shipments are processed with USPS Priority International, International Parcel, or International Express.

Customer Service

My time is limited and my hands are usually busy either creating custom sneakers, updating my sites and social media accounts, taking pictures, designing tees, or just running the business. I do however value each and every customer. I try to check emails throughout the day and reply to them in a reasonable period of time. In return however, I expect that you have read before you placed your order and have read the important pages on this site.

In the event you need to get in touch with me simply email or call 775-476-8549
