This might be the closest thing to a gold-dipped Air Jordan we’ve ever seen, but there’s no surprise that it’s a custom, right? This latest banger from El Cappy reconstitutes ‘Golden Moment‘ (with an emphasis on gold) for a tonal upper and black contrast for a Premio-like level of luxury. The laces have been replaced with a shimmering golden rope, and the midsole ‘peaks’ have been switched to a solid gold as well to complete the exquisite nature of a true gold-dipped shoe, leaving us to wonder if maybe this type of design should’ve been the true ‘Golden Moment’ release. According to El Cappy, these were a custom order for hip-hop act A$AP Rocky, which Cappy notes with the custom heel-badges. More of this amazing custom work below, so give it a look and let us know if you think this version is better than the Golden Moments release!
I think he used the Orion 7 colorway. All leather and the tongue would be pretty easy to dye a darker color. Not my style with the gold but the craftsmanship I can admire
you guys need to learn something. it says vs(left shoe) vp (right shoe). behind the heel.. http://www.black-scale.com/?p=5094 look at this logo. If you guys knew something that emblem on top of the V is represented upside down as an A. A.S.A.P. represents gold to the fullest. seems customized.
@Jerronimo i think he used the cardinals because of the leather
honestly i hate people like u that think that they kno everything WE ALL KNEW THAT hence the name GOLDIE as in the song I DIDNT NEED TO SEE THE BACK OF THE SNEAKER TO FIGURE OUT IT HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH ASAP MOB OR BLACK SCALE
put the shoes together it represents the rap group "A.S.A.P" . The A's are upside down for a reason. The group represents gold which is what they always talk about. Prove me wrong and lets talk son. Those kicks are gold as ice!
@bJWALKINrivers so does every other shoe, no matter how ugly they are haha
@Jumpfan23 From the look of it, this pair is all leather. I believe the GMP 7's were a mixture of leather and (nubuck or suede).
@BallHard15 to each his own, it's a matter of opinion what is ugly to someone
@VaSneehed you sir are right.
