Glowing Flywire & Galaxy Foamposite Custom LeBron 9 by GourmetKickz

Glowing Flywire Mesh & Galaxy Foamposite Custom LeBron 9 by GourmetKickz

This is my latest addition to the 1 of 1 Custom LeBron 9 Galaxy Foamposite series that I offered a select few who reached out to me after my “King of the Galaxy” project sold out. This version uses a grey and white base LeBron 9 Foamposite. I customized this pair with a different galaxy print and decided to make this one really pop by treating the flywire mesh portions to glow in addition to the sole, laces, and swoosh. The result is yet another well cooked and damn near nuclear dish. If you really must have a pair and are prepared to pay a premium and wait for this dish to be cooked to your specs, you email me. I may decide to launch a product listing for a bespoke session so stay tuned. There are more images after the jump and plenty more pics to come in the image gallery.

Custom LeBron 9 Galaxy Foamposite “King of the Galaxy” Revealed

Custom LeBron 9 Galaxy Foamposite "King of the Galaxy" by GourmetKickz

Back in mid February I decided to launch a product on this site with just a mockup image, something I often do. However, never before has a mocked up design been so well received than this Custom LeBron 9 Galaxy Foamposite which I dubbed the “King of the Galaxy”. This image set is from the first 8 that were shipped in the run of 24 pair that sold out. Due to the high density of orders placed in such a short period of time, the series had to be constructed 8 pair at a time to ensure quality and refined finished product. A new logo was also designed in honor of this launch. The logo is a combination of the LBJ logo, my own GourmetKickz iconic logo, and the NASA logo. The galaxy print used is from NASA’s image archives. It is much more detailed than any “galaxy” print any airbrush artist or ink process can emulate and in fact, what everyone refers to as a galaxy is actually a nebula. Enjoy the images below and if you are one of the fortunate clients who purchased, take my word, your pair will be arriving soon. Continue reading

Custom 112 Inspired Zoom Rookie "Brooklyn Rookie" by GourmetKickz

Following up my Custom LeBron 9 Foamposite themed after Clark Kent’s 112 kicks, I decided to cook up another dish, using the Zoom Rookie as a base. The result, well I am sure many will agree…. A Masterpiece! Dyed sole, painted accents, VT-like Fabric Wrapped upper with elephant print canvas, and a 3M reflective eyestay! An alternate version offers 3M plastic accents and tongue with the eyestay in black! Which one is hotter?  I think even Clark would be proud to rock these, as would any Brooklynite or fan of the 112 themed kicks worldwide! Cop a pair after the jump and check out how these will look when the cameras come flashing! Allow 5 to 8 weeks for delivery of these custom kicks, they are cooked up to order!

Custom Camouflage Zoom Rookie VT “Armed Rookie” by GourmetKickz

Custom Camoufage Nike Zoom Rookie VT "Armed Rookie"

I couldn’t resist. I had to see what the rookies would look like with some camouflage applied to them, and vuala! MAGIC! These things are gorgeous. I leave it up to my audience to bring them to life. As soon as you pay, I will begin working on some rookies to apply my VT-Like fabric wrapping method using either traditional BDU Camouflage or Modern Digital Camoflage in addition to dying the soles. These will certainly become a staple in your late spring and summer wardrobe. Purchase now and have them in time for the height of fashion this late spring and early summer.  Please allow 5 to 8 weeks for delivery once your order has been placed. You may place your order and see an image of the Digital Camouflage version after the jump. Bon A Petit!
