We’ve seen some funky custom concepts in the past, and even the recent Camo Customs of the Foamposite One was certainly one of the more interesting ones of the year. Baltimore native Jonathon Carrington recently completed his own Foamposite customs, inspired by ‘Eye of the Tiger’, made evident by the alternating orange and black stripes on the upper. The DC/MD/VA area is pretty much Foamposite Central, USA, and the appreciation for these clunky and cool sneakers is unmatched by any other region, which is why we might see more and more Foamposite customs come out of that area (and considering Custom Sneakers have been a trendy topic this year). Using the Pewter Foams as a base, Carrington repainted the uppers using his tiger-inspired vision, and is now offering a limited edition run of 10 pairs. Check out the detailed shots of this feral custom and if you’re interested in a pair, hit up Jonathon at his email, listed after the jump.

I Think This 1st Time Out Is GREAT!!!!!!! This Artist Can Only Get Better! I've Seen Worse Shoes From Customisers Who Have Been Doing This For Longer. This Artist Is Creative And Has No Whwre To Go But Up!
THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING DREAMS, HOWEVER JUST BECAUSE U CAN CUSTOMIZE A SHOE DOESN'T MEAN U SHOULD. CERTAIN SHOES SHOULD NEVER BE CUSTOMIZED & THIS IS ONE OF THEM. HORRRRIIIIIIBBBBBBBBBBLLLLLLLEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
everybody's a fucking critic. man i know more half of yall aint even got the nuts to even try and customize sum foamposites...they might not be the best but hell give the guy some kind of damn credit
terrible work, terrible idea, terrible base shoe, and terrible article that doesn't deserve to be on this site. Really starting to question the decision making behind these articles on the site.
THIS WOULD MAKE A NICE BENGALS CLEAT BUT THE ONLY WAY I WOULD WEAR BLACK STRIPED CUSTOM FOAMS ARE THE "ALTERNATE " ORLANDO MAGIC ROYAL BLUES...AND ID TAKE THE "CAMO" PAINTED CUSTOM FOAMS OVER THESE AS WELL....NICE JOB OVERALL AND CREDIT FOR THE IDEA AND ATTEMPT THO..
Anybody who thinks this is a good job needs their motherfuckin' eyes examined for tumors and cataracts. A fucking 2nd grader with an orange marker and a black crayon could pull this weak shit off. SN you must be DESPERATE for news if you're posting dogshit like this.
Funny comments above, Tony The Tiger PEs-classic but as for the shoe, mad props for even attempting to do work on a Foam. I like the idea though but sneakernews you sure he used the pewters? Looks more like he used the coppers
I BEt The Only People Hating Is Tghe Hype Beast Who Noe Nothing About Kicks And The Time Real Sneakerheads Spend Making Something Unique I Would Get These Just So I DOnt Look Like Everyother Person. Well Done Bro
Waste of Money, waste of paint, waste of shoe and def a waste of the few moments of my time i spent scrolling through to scope this trash.......... Not trying to harp, but this is a fail.
HAHAHAHA fucking jack-o lantern shoes. The finish looks like crap too. Spraypaint and sharpie shit. Hahaha.
