Mache is known for his custom sneaker orders by celebrities such as Just Blaze, Wale, and Clark Kent. KicksOnFire reported on his latest inspiration: the Son of Yeezy, a twist on the Jordan Son of Mars. Mache’s concept is a 1 of 1. Check out more shots of the Son of Yeezy, including the kicks that started it all below. When we caught up with the design guru yesterday, he gave us a little insight on why he made the Son of Yeezy, and their future on your feet.
Size: 12, made for myself.
Time of Production: 1 day (compare that to the estimated 30 hours it took to produce the Beetlejuice dunks)
Avg. Price: $500, if they were for sale.
Craziest Custom Order: A pair of Hyperdunks that resemble Air Mags for a guy getting married. People want the things I’ve already done.
Inspiration for Son of Yeezy: The strap, the mid-sole of the Jordan Son of Mars. They didn’t get good fanfare. People were shitting on the Son of Mars. I wanted to make it resemble the Yeezy’s but not look like a bootleg. [Editor’s Note: Via Mache’s instagram, his Son of Yeezy caption says, “Turning a Flero into a Lamborghini custom.”]
