His Nike LeBron 9 ‘Nerf’ Customs closed out the year in custom kicks in the perfect way, but it appears that Mache has all the intentions to serve as the sturdy bookends for 2012. Check out his Nike Zoom Kobe VII done up in the same motif of the popular December release of the Nike Zoom KD IV; using the already loud and spectacular ‘Leopard/Christmas’ as the base, Mache colorizes the shoe the match perfectly with the blocking of the KD IV while skillfully adding the Nerf-ish details like the speckling on the outsole as well as the black/grey splash gradient on the ankle collar and tongue. Unfortunately, this will be Mache’s last ‘Nerf’ custom, so check out the quick shots of the Nerfed out process below and let us know which of the three (original KD version and the two customs) you enjoy best. via PaintOrThread.
I HATE poor-man's versions of ANYTHING whether its electric blue foams with pink laces jordan forces or this air brushing colorways onto cheaper kicks ITS ALL BULLSHIT.
Your point is invalid. There is nothing poor about foams or jordans. They both sell for well over $100 retail. YOU sir, are a lame, follow the bouncing ball, hypebeast. Learn to think for yourself. I know, i know. New concept, but it works.
@MaseratiMalc Here's a new concept, practice reading comprehension. "I HATE poor-man's versions of ANYTHING whether its "electric blue foams with pink laces" "jordanforces" or "air brushing colorways onto cheaper kicks" ITS ALL BULLSHIT. " I wear foams but i would never wear my electric blues with pink laces i have my south beach 8's for that. i wear jordans but i would never buy a pair of jordanforces. i have KD Nerfs and I would never buy this cheap paint by numbers shit here… does that about some up my point? Obvi, since you think 100 plus is some real bread for kicks this convo ain't going 2 far… SO FALL BACK
@D.johnson since when does anyone have to agree that something is hot to comment in the forum? If you must know, I like "original concept customs" not plagiarized color-ways. I not asking you to agree with me. I'm not even asking you to read my words. I posted "deal with it"@Keysd31 just because something sells for more money, does not make it quality… at the end of the day that's not the original.
What are talking about? Its just putting a different c/w on different silhouettes what does it have to be with being poor? Also the nerfs retailed for like 125 and the kobe 7s retail 175 so the shoe is more expensive(before the resell market). I know everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but if you don't like burger's why go to burger king. So if you don't like customs why click on this page?
I like the Lebron's the best. These are nice too but I'll never be able to own a pair of any of them.
