The American Eagle Project: Nike ZF-1 Gold Plated Baller Boots
The newest thing in snowboarding, gold plated snowboard boots, has set the “gold” standard for what’s what and who’s who in the snowboard world, or should we say the snowboard galaxy. Nike’s new custom gold plated ZF-1′s named the “American Eagle” project are quite the piece, any boarder with these boots is expected to bring the biggest of airs and the hottest of ladies.
Jewellery designer Osamu Koyama of Complete Technique shaped and formed each gold plate around Nike‘s popular Zoom Force 1 white snowboard boots. An excessive amount of yellow gold plating most likely caused for an even more excessive price for whom ever the boots were designed and made for. Complete with an opulent opal pendant and gold wings, it is clear that whoever these boots were created for had a little more than snowboarding in mind. My guess is that these boots were only made for some sort of superhero or quite possibly a snowboard god.
Perhaps their some sort of moon boot? Who knows, but one thing is for sure, these boots have it, and clearly no one and nothing else does.
But for real, why were these boots produced? Can’t Nike just make a decent functioning boot for once?
