CUSTOM NIKE MAG BY MACHE CUSTOMS
One of the ways that customizer headrunner Dan Gamache makes headlines is by altering base shoes that are deemed untouchable by many. It’s a clever and bold approach. His recent attempt at the most coveted shoe of last year - and a silhouette that is still one of the hardest to find in all of streetwear - is the Nike MAG 2011 for the Michael J. Fox fundraising auction put on by Nike and eBay. Well, Mache did what Mache does, and altered the shoe into a custom that will sit proudly in his portfolio forever more. It’s not a heavy alteration, but that’s not the point with a base this rare.
The artist has brought custom sneakers to the forefront, and recently spoke with Nicekicks on the topic in a great interview detailing a huge shift in the public reception of the art.
