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

Chef has used a hi-resolution image of the Orion Nebula taken from the Hubble telescope. The image is printed on high quality cloth and sealed with wax, this process is known as wax-cloth or oilcloth, a high end luxury treatment. Random stars on the print will also glow! Continue reading
