Nike LeBron 9 ‘Nerf’ Customs by Mache

We live in an era when colorway-swapping customs are as popular as remixed hit singles, and the latest little ditty is one of the more impressive we’ve seen applied to the Nike LeBron 9.  Patterned after the‘Nerf’ Zoom KD IV that hit limited retail locations last week, this Mache Custom Kicks effort does a great job of appropriating the splatter print on the KD IV’s strap, applying it to the whole ankle area.  The rest of the shoe is spot-on when it comes to blocking, except that the Max Air cushion might have been neon green in a perfect world.  We’ve yet to see a ‘Dunkman’ LeBron 9 that might easily accommodate that kind of thing, but already we know to expect to see that signature palette replicated on another hot release coming up soon; perhaps a Zoom KD IV?  Click through to see this ‘Nerf’ LeBron 9 custom close-up, and let us know where they rank against the other color copies we’ve seen of late.

when u want something done right u gotta do it yourself. example of that clearly shown here. lebron 9's only look good in certain color ways .... maybe nike should take the hint of making good shoes/colorways NOT overpriced OR ultra limited.

sick. much better on the LBJ 9 than the KD IV, but both shoes are dope respectively. I guess a dope ass concept can look good on almost any sneaker

There's a little ditty, they're singin' in the city, especially when they've been on the gin or the beer. If you've got the patience, your own imaginations 'll tell you just exactly what you want to hear: Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah! That's how it goes, Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah! Ev'ryone knows: They all suppose what they want to suppose when they hear oom-pah-pah!

One of the first customs I've seen where you can't even tell what CW the original shoe was. Awesome work!

Better than those ugly KD nerfs... Funny how some people spent $600 on the resell of those KD nerfs and then those same people will call the Yeezy 2's ugly and over hyped... Lets be honest here people... If those KD nerfs were a general release shoe with over 40,000 pairs made for distribution... They'd be just like frozen food... Chillen on the shelf...

A Mache name drop? Haven't heard that in years. Didn't even know he was still doing custom kicks. One of the best to do it period. Not a fan of the Nerf concept, but this 9 is sick.
