You might think the popularity of Foamposites have peaked, but the apex is certainly much higher thanks to a number of highly-anticipated releases for 2012. ‘Electrolime’ has us dazzled while ‘Metallic Red’ keeps us excited, but what if these ‘Snakeskin’ customs released? The latest Foamposite custom job, done by Gourmet Kickz, is completely wrapped in a shimmering faux snakeskin material with copper accents surrounding the shoe. Yes, those are actual pennies covering the 1-Cent logo, and the strip of copper dots are actually CopperHead brand BBs. A bit to ornate for your taste, or is this gaudy production right up the Foamposite alley? Check out the images below and hit up AF1King to get your customs done. via paintorthread.

That custom made is horrible like for real smh. Bunch of hype beast saying its "nicesss" smh. Know your history of the foamposites.
these might look better if you could see the ridges. and take off the penny on the tongues that just looks tacky!
WAY TO MANY EMBELLISHMENTS....MAYBE THE SNAKESKIN & EVERYTHING ELSE BLACK INCLUDING THE SOLE. FUNNY THING IS THAT EVERYBODY WANTS TO SHIT ON YOUR CRAFTSMANSHIP, BUT IF KANYE OR JAY-Z WORE THEM IN A VIDEO....ALL THAT TAKED SHIT WILL BE ON YOUR DICK...DICK RIDERS!!!!!!!!!
This is were creativity goes wrong. Not really big on Foams anyway especially when Nike makes all these rainbow colorways but I guess others like them but to each is there own I don't know.
SUPER DOPE CONCEPT, REALLY CREATIVE BUUUUTTTT U GLUED REAL PENNIES ON THEM..... WHERE THEY DO THAT AT? C'MON SON!
Super gluing a penny to a tongue. Now that gives someone else to put the Air Jordan V lace lock on the Air Jordan VI and call it a "custom" or a "hybrid".
would never wear these, but i actually think it works pretty well. Although, the pennies on the tongue look kind of ridiculous
THIS IS WEN NIKE STARTS 2 GO FUCKIN STUPID WTF WHO THE HELL PUTS SNAKE SKIN ON A FUCKIN PAIR OF FOAMPOSITE THESE WUD ONLY LOOK GUD ON THE FUCKIN AIRFORCE LIKE WTF NIKE?????? THIS SHIT IS CRAY
Well he F up some good foam that snakeskin looks terribe and crazy gluing a penny is corny and looks cheap
I actually like these, and i was kinda excited thinking they were going to be released. When i realized they were customs i thought differently. The pennies on the shoe killed it, and the quality is terrible. Why not just learn how to use photoshop and render a pair? Instead of going balls out and ruining a great sneaker. SMH, people and their customs....And i only liked this pair when i seen the thumbnail. And jesus how are the soles that yellowed/dirty all ready? i wear mine all the time and they're still icy.
These are vomit-worthy. I was never a big fan of foams, but eww.. Nike shouldn't have let these leave the factory.
I also like the way he incorporated everything, even the pennies on the tongue. Not personally a fan of foamposite ones, but i respect the attention to detail on this custom.
OK whats the deal with snakeskin and foamposites?? they dont even sound right in the same sentence together!
