Jason Negron’s “swapped sole” custom Foamposites have resulted in some interesting colorways thanks to the unique concepts that drive each of his projects. When he swapped the soles of the Nike Air 1/2 Cent in the Royal and Green Spark colorway, he had the Dallas Mavericks in mind. Then came the Cactus Green and Eggplant Foamposite Ones, which had a ‘Joker’-like colorway of Varsity Purple and light green. His most recent project involved the Pearl and the Cough Drops, which showed that a Pro/One inter-Foamposite swap could be done (after all, the outsoles are the same!). The Cough Drop Foamposite sole is the focus once again, as Negron uses the Ohio State Buckeyes and their trademark football helmets as the inspiration, taking the translucent red outsole and applying it to the Metallic Pewter Foamposite One. The final touch comes in the form of a lace-lock with the OSU school logo at the forefoot of the shoe. Check out the detailed images of Jason Negron’s latest swapped sole custom, and if you’ve got your own Foamposite mash-up idea that you’d like to see brought to reality, you can hit up Jason on his Facebook page or get in contact with him through Packer Shoes.
