Serving up a bonafide delicacy, Gourmet has prepared the Dieci 2 LX in a “Red Cheetah” colorway. Although spotted for the cheetah reference, suede is the vehicle for the animalistic treatment, as the silhouette displays large and smooth panels as well as a semi-sidewinding lacing layout. Keeping it casual, a white midsole is employed to contrasted the black accents up top. Head over to Shop Nice Kicks to grab these now for $120 while supplies last.
Enlisting the creativity of The Madbury Club, Gourmet has unveiled their Fall/Winter 2013 Collection via a new lookbook. Animals and camo prints cascade over the upper of the lightweight lifestyle kicks. Highlights of the collection include the water-resistant “Forest Camo” colorway and the bold red cheetah print used on the Quattro silhouette. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for updates on when this new collection is available on Gourmet’s online store.
Venturing away from their beginnings, but staying true to their brand, Gourmet linked up Black Scale to craft a special edition of the lux yet casual 35 Lite. Bearing a retro running silhouette and cloaked in a shredded leather overcoat, the added texture brings an unorthodox simplicity to the multiple panels. Black Scale branding appears on the genuine leather tongue tab with Gourmet branding featured on the side panels. Available now at shopnicekicks.com, these 35 Lites are currently retailing for $140.
From big shoes on the car to riding with a shoe deal, Young Jeezy tied the knot with Gourmet by appearing at brand’s fall launch at Wish. As you may recall, the Snowman made headlines in the spring by teaming up with the footwear company. Now an official member of the family, check out a recap of Jeezy’s appearance at the launch and after party in the video below.
Gourmet has become a staple in the lifestyle footwear market. As the brand continues to grow and stretch its reach to a more diverse fan base, they present the Gourmet The 35 “Mint”. The unorthodox runner carries a different aesthetic than you may be used to, but incorporates many technical attributes that make it worth your money. Mint colored micro-suede material shares the upper with hits of black full-grain leather. Gourmet’s luxurious touch shows up in the form of round cotton waxed laces. The unconventional runner is finished with an all black outsole. The Gourmet The 35 “Mint” is available now at select retailers for $100.
Black Scale stamps their style on the Gourmet The 35. Sliced black leather drapes the upper for a textured look and feel, contrasted by minimal white accents on the midsole and tagging. Smooth lines appear on the base, but are mostly overpowered by the blacked out styling and spiked finish. Fans of Gourmet and Black Scale can pick up this pair overseas at Hanon.
The club killer, the ad-lib aficionado (ayyy), Young Jeezy has teamed up with Gourmet. A quick survey of The Snowman’s Instagram page will see the soul survivor laced in various models from the brand, including the 35 Lite and the Quattro Skate C. Details on the teaming are unknown at this moment. Will Jeezy get a shoe? Will Jay Bilas be on the seeding list? Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for updates on Jeezy and Gourmet.
