Our features on custom sneakers have placed a worthy spotlight on a few artistic individuals who have displayed their handiwork in their sick custom works. Among the ‘elite’ group of customizers is Jason Negron, one individual who has mastered and manipulated the Foamposite as if it were an extension of his own being, but his latest work is a ‘curveball’ of sorts as he makes an attempt at a Kobe custom inspired by one of the most popular Zoom Kobes in history. Here’s a look at the Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Grinch’ Custom; using this season’s ‘Christmas’ join as the base, Jason repainted almost the entire shoe, going full tonal neon volt on the upper and, in a nutshell, reconstituting the Grinch colorway on the heel, outsole, the laces, and the Swoosh. The cherry on top is the snake wrapping itself around the Kobe Shozoku logo. No sole-swapping here, but a solid customization on a shoe that is certainly difficult to manipulate due to the finicky snakeskin upper material. We’ve got a detailed look at Jason Negron’s custom Grinch below so take a look and check him out on his Sole Swap Facebook Page or Instagram to follow his work.

I wouldn't touch these, but fair play to the guy for making money off this kind of thing.

I don't get the purple? Well done, just curious how the purple plays into the Grinch theme

Not too much of a fan of the colors but he did a great job redoing the shoe. Keep up the great work

These are pretty dope. They might be better than the original grinches if there were scales instead of the line pattern..

Regardless of what you think he still did a great job on the shoe and you can't take away its unique quality. Keep trolling but once you mature you learn to appreciate things of artistic value.

But that's the Cheetah not the Grinch's. So the purple is completely wrong.
