Mache’s stock is continues its steady climb as we get a look at his latest custom work made for the Wounded Warrior Project, a charitable organization developed to honor and empower those wounded in the line of duty. Mache was commissioned directly by the Wounded Warrior Project to make a pair of custom LeBron 9s inspired by a warhawk-style plane, as seen here by the sharks-teeth at the toe and the rivets that fasten the metal sheets in place. This project was close to Mache’s heart as his own father was a Wounded Warrior, but the sheer effort and artistry put into this custom work shows that Mache gave his most inspired effort to complete this custom. The Nike LeBron 9 ‘Wounder Warrior Project’ will be a one-of-one custom and will only be available at the Rhode Island Sneaker Xchange on September 2nd, where the shoes will be raffled off. A certain treat for fans of the LeBron, of Mache’s work, and members of the U.S. Armed Forces, so check out the gallery below and let us know where these rank among Mache Customs‘ best work.
