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.
