Philadelphia 76ers forward Thaddeus Young has always been a fan of Penny’s Nike line. Young is from the same block as Penny Hardaway, and last season he told us that he only wears Pennys. Now Thad has a pair of Pennys that no one else does. Mache has cooked up a Nike Penny 5 “Ironman” custom for the Georgia Tech grad in the recognizable red and gold color combination.
Watch our conversation with Thad about his love for Pennys below, and let us know what you think of this custom “Ironman” 5 in the comment section underneath.
The 2013 Kicks On Court race is underway. Throughout this season, we not only caught up with our eight nominees, but also people we’ve worked with that actually pay attention to the Kicks On Court race and are sometimes spotted courtside at games. Here what DJ Clark Kent, Joe Haden, Stalley and others have to say about who should be crowned on Friday.
Elite customizer Mache continues his hot streak by creating the Air Jordan 11 “Reverse DMP” Custom. Using a pair of the Air Jordan 11 “Silver Anniversary” as a base, Mache colors the upper gold. Black cloaks the inner lining and Jumpman label on the tongue. A gold Jumpman emblem on that label, and gold “23” on the heel tab finish this one-of-one custom Jordan. What are your thoughts on the Air Jordan 11 “Reverse DMP” Custom by Mache?
Mache collaborates with Relevant Customs and Absolelute for a whole new beast on the Nike Kobe 8 “What the Kobe” Custom. Using the Kobe 7 release of the same theme as inspiration, this pair uses purple python, black snakeskin, shark, and neon lizard skins to compose the colorway. Faux cheetah fur dresses the tongue, on these statement sneakers. Built to be bespoke, look for five pairs to launch for sale on Mache Customs.
The Air Jordan 11 Low “Chicago Bears” Custom is a private order made by Mache. A navy blue upper and orange mudguard showcase the team’s colors, while heel tagging ties together the theme. Navy tints the outsole on this one-of-one creation inspired by the Monsters of the Midway. Is this the best team-inspired Air Jordan custom by Mache to date?
