You gotta hand it to Gourmet Kickz for going the extra mile with his “305″ series of customs. Not only has he been applying a tropical floral look to various Nike models with the series, he’s also added embellishments you wouldn’t see on your standard pair. Such additions include quite a thorough glow in the dark coating that doesn’t get in the way of the colorful graphics as well as a little bit of nautical flavor via those sea shell attachments. Continue reading for a full gallery on the Nike LeBron X “305″ customs and then get in touch with Gourmet Kickz if you like what you see.
What the hell is wax cloth anyway...? Well I think Chef will have to change his technique up if he wants to make any cash because the way the whole exotic skin thing has taken over, he might wanna' think about sewing. Plus he takes what Nike has done already and does it over times 10 like a super-hyper-strike-gs-limited-asia only-tier zero release.
And I don't see his shoes in a lot of places like some of the other custom guys out there...
I use to think this guy was painting these kicks.. but all he does is print the designs on a wax cloth and crazy glues it on the shoe.. just glued on not even stitched down..and his prices are way higher than the guys who actually sew... smh
Wax cloth is pretty much a thin durable fabric..so u can print ur own design on it... then cut and glue it on... I seen chefs work in person at sneakercon and I was shocked. .. I always thought he was an airbrush artist... but look at these..the upper panel of the lebron 10 is mesh... so if this was painted u would see the holes... this is just glued on.. the fabric may be adhesive backed where he just uses a heat gun to apply it like vinyl wrap... but he charges over 600! For this... and u have to supply the shoe
