If you’re a sneaker geek, you have (a lot of) money to burn, and you want to take your kicks to the next level, check out Kickxotic.
These guys offer luxurious, customized sneaker services by reconstructing your favorite silhouettes with the finest Italian leather, beautiful exotic skins and lush vibrant textiles—all by hand. The prices, of course, don’t come cheap. Their “VIP Custom” service starts from B30,000, with prices varying according to size, style, material and other details based on each customer’s specifications. A "base shoe" or a doner sneaker is required for recrafting—it must be an original (no fakes!) that you send for customization, otherwise you can make a request for the team to source a base shoe for you. Orders usually take around 4-12 weeks to complete, depending on your requirements.
For a taste of what they have to offer, hit the "order now" button to check out their Air Jordan 1 Lux Royal (B47,900) handcrafted from Jim Thompson's fabric, white python skin and black calf leather, completed with black lambskin lining, or the Air Force One El Dorado (B58,990), a collab piece with rapper 24K Goldn, made from matte white python skin, dark emerald green crocodile leather and gold rock-studs.
All appointments must be booked in advance. Visit kickxotic.com for more information.
