Earlier this year I launched my “Force of the King’s Army” LeBron 9 Foamposite which took cues from the Camo AF1 Low VT. This shoe was launched on mockup leaving some mystery as to how the shoes would actually look once completed. This is yet another instance where my mockup vs. actual product comparison page comes in handy. The above image reveals a few pairs that were recently created. They all feature some sort of sole dye treatment (orange, green, and glow in the dark), VT-Like camo fabric application, and paint. All 3 pictured turned out amazing. Let me know which is your favorite or use the listing after the jump to purchase a pair while the LeBron 9 Foamposite base shoe remains available on NikeID. (price includes the cost of the base shoe).
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. Check out more images after the jump and book your pair now.
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
