When standing out is important taste is everything!
Customized footwear has long been a hallmark of good taste. From bespoke shoe makers to cobblers who would tweak original shoe designs upon repair, custom kicks in some way shape or form have been the norm in the lifestyles of those with good taste and high standards. As such one must choose their custom kicks artist carefully. It may not always been the most popular artist who puts out the best work. As we know the sneaker game can be very biased as soon as a customizer works with a celebrity. Typically celebrities are connected with custom sneaker artists by PR agencies, very rarely will a celebrity contact a sneaker artist directly because they have been a genuine admirer of their work. Make no mistake, celebrities get caught up in the hype too. So when choose a custom kicks designer, sometimes you need to look at the root of their fame and see if it was based on hype that drew other celebrities and clients in, or was it achieved simply by the merit of their work without the help of celebrity clientele. GourmetKickz is a brand that is set apart from other custom sneaker artists with more followers in that Chef, the artist behind GourmetKickz, prefers not to work with celebrities. Chef prefers to work with people who actually support his work and are genuine fans of his creative process. Celebrities typically want things in a hurry and at times try to exchange social media tags and endorsing for custom kicks. Chef has only worked with a couple of celebrities, and they reached out to him via their own personal email and even spoke with Chef over the phone at great length before moving forward. Good taste goes both ways for GourmetKickz, Chef’s philosophy in protecting the brand is to only do work for people who, without the hype of the internet, would still fall in love with his work. While this can be a hard task, Chef has accomplished this by limiting client input on what will be done on commissioned 1 of 1 works. Chef commands creative control of each and every piece and does not allow dictation of “exactly” what clients want on sneakers. There are too many other artists in the field who do that, Chef cooks up original dishes based on the passions of his clients. Much like an architect designs a structure that fits the surrounding landscape, Chef constructs a wearable work of art that fits its owner.
