Photographer @Ryustyler has been pairing sneakers with food for a color-filled series on Instagram dubbed #DeliciousKicks. Now, the shutterbug takes his skills to the next level by teaming up with sneaker customizer Chase Shiel. The duo unveils a bespoke Air Jordan 1 inspired by the matcha used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies. Mimicking the process of using only the finest ingredients, the bespoke footwear is crafted using four premium leathers, including custom-dyed nubuck and velvety pig suede — all in a tonal green hues resembling the tea.

Additional details include a leather-lined interior, custom tongue tabs, cream-colored laces with gold aglets and laser-engraved dubraes. Along the heels, Italian-woven cotton tabs and a subtle embossed stamp help elevate the overall look.

Each order will come with a bamboo tea whisk and an embroidered suede dust bag. The “Matcha” Air Jordan 1 is available to purchase starting today and will be limited to just 20 pairs. Take a closer look the sneakers above and head over to Chase Shiel’s website to learn more.
