I wouldn’t be a Chef if I didn’t offer items on my menu to satisfy all tastes. While this doesn’t mean I customize every shoe into a ParaNorman theme, it does mean that I will offer a multi-course meal using the hottest kicks out as the key ingredient. Above you see my take on how a ParaNorman LeBron 9 Foamposite should look. As you know by now bringing this dish to life is a easy task for me. Key features include glow in the dark zombie mist on the quarters, electric green accents, an electric green sole that glows in the dark, and plenty of other glowing accents. The packaging will be very similar to my King of the Galaxy LeBron 9 Foamposite package in that a custom box, custom insoles, and custom hang tag will be included.

Launched appropriately on Mother’s Day is not just a new custom shoe, but a new custom group of kicks from GourmetKickz. This Custom “Aunt Pearl” Foamposite Pro (using a donor Pearl Foamposite Pro from the client) was an obvious design to help start the series Chef is calling the “Pink Pudding” Collection. Pink Pudding takes a page out of and pays homage to one of Chef’s most revered influences and favorite Brands, Ralph Lauren and his Pink Pony Collection. Similar to Pink Pony, a portion of the proceeds from all sales of Pink Pudding goods will be donated to Breast Cancer Research. You can check out more of the Pink Pudding Collection after the jump and even purchase the goods. Continue reading
Inspired by Dj Clark Kent’s recurring 112 sneakers, this LeBron 9 Foamposite has been customized with elephant print wrapped in VT-like fashion and treated with reflective 3M to create a true Brooklyn specialty dish. This simply and clean custom will certainly break necks and likely fool people into asking “When did those come out?” Cop your pair after the jump and take a peek at how they look when hit with camera flash! Oh, and remember there is a 5 to 8 week wait for these customs since the base shoe comes from NikeID and is ordered once you pay for your pair.
Chef of GourmetKickz is at it again with his color-matching mastery. In this instance Chef has chosen the “cough drop” Foamposite One to create the above pictured “Gucci” Foams. The shoe color was derived from other Gucci inspired Nike releases and uses the same exact green present on these limited editions. Chef has produced a small run of these custom foams and is currently selling them for $400. The customs kicks also include hand painted pull tags to mimic the Gucci stripes. There is also talk of a limited box and snap-back package to be released.
