Entire 1800 Essential Artists x GourmetKickz Custom AF1 Series Now Available

Custom Nike Air Force 1 Set from 1800 Tequila x GourmetKickz Collaboration

1800 Tequila launched its custom bottle series, limited to 1800 pieces. 9 different bottles were designed by renowned artists from all over North America. 1800 then connected GourmetKickz with these artists in an effort to an another dimension to their campaign. The result is in the above picture. 9 masterpiece custom sneakers that were born of the collaboration. As another phase of the collab, 1800 powered the launch of Chef’s dream site, The 3D GourmetKickz Creator! This website uses 3D design software to allows users to “skin” an all white Nike Air Force 1 Low with artwork from the Essential Artist campaign. There are hundreds of billions of possible combinations without ever repeated a design! that’s right, a site more powerful than Nike ID, in fact it has been called “Nike ID on steroids”. The site allows you to use “Chef Logic” to design sneakers, therefore it gives you the virtual abilities of Chef himself, allowing only what is realistically possible. This means you can order and receive exactly what you create with no errors. Take a look at the designs that have been launched on AF1King so far after the jump. You can buy the entire premiere set of 9 super-limited AF1’s, cop them piecemeal,  or head on over to the Kicks Creator right now and make your very own 1 of 1’s!

Chef only requires that you send him a pair of either the Slime Greens or Pearls to get the job started. At a fee of $200, you get back an expertly designed pair of exact color-matched foams. You can contract the job here and view more pics.


Custom “Animal Kingdom” Nike Air Force 1 via GourmetKickzCreator

Custom "Animal Kingdom" Nike Air Force 1 via GourmetKickzCreator

This pair of 3D Custom Nike Air Force Ones uses one of my personal favorite pieces of artwork from the GourmetKickz Creator: Hannah Stouffer’s jungle scene art. It uses this artwork in just the toebox of the Nike AF1 Low, but accents the art with great color blocking throughout the rest of the sneaker. This custom sneaker would be a sure way to get attention from both lovers of art and sneakerheads. They reside now only in 3D within the custom sneaker generator called the GourmetKickz Creator but upon ordering will be hand made by Chef of GourmetKickz. Remember, when you use the Design Your Own Custom Kickz application from Chef, you are basicially designing in 3D with his skills. This manner of design uses a set of rules called “ChefLogic“, they define what Chef will and will not do to a Nike Air Force 1 sneaker.

If you seek other customizations on this particular design you can build on top of this pair of custom Nike sneakers or take the time to review exactly what has been done to them. You can view these custom Nike Air Force One Lows in 3D or browse other 3D designs from this site or the user gallery in the kicks creator.
