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.
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.
