The Nike Air Yeezy 'Golden Child' shoes are a customized take on the rapper sneakers in a collaboration between LASCO and John Geiger. A gilded design renders these casual sport sneakers an exclusive pair for shoe collectors to own.

The shoes feature a ultra hip gilded design that is tailor-made with detailed craftsmanship that took over 40-hours of work to complete. This is due to the varying separate pieces that come together to form the silhouette of the shoe as well as the five different types of leather used to construct the upper. The sneaker is composed of independent pieces that are separate and then stitched together using three types of threads. The variety in leather adds dimension to the gilded colorway with a combination sleek, matte, shiny and wafer textures.
