Does anyone here know who John Tawney and Toren Orzeck are? We’ll give you a minute to think about it. Chances are you won’t recognize those names so readily, but if you’re a Foamposite fanatic (and how could you not be, with all the crazy colorways that have released and will release in ’12) the names of Tawney and Orzeck should be inserted in your sneaker knowledge glossary. Permanently. Former members of the Nike Advanced Product Engineering team (and engineers at Ford and GE prior to that), Tawney and Orzeck created ‘Foamposite’ material as a result of their efforts of  creating a material that was both lightweight and less laborious to manufacture, paving the way for some of the most revolutionary designs in Nike Basketball history.

The futuristic nature of the material was only accentuated by Eric Avar’s slick design, but in 2012, it’ll be re-introduced in fitting space-age form – the ‘Galaxy’ colorway that Sneaker News first showed you a week ago. The upper features transplanted imagery of colorful galaxies of outer space that, when combined with the Air Foamposite One design, creates a visual masterpiece that, like most piece of revolutionary art, might not be appreciated in its time. Some might think the use of the graphic print might be overkill, but Nike has a history, with shoes like the Presto, Kukini, and other sneakers on the funkier end of the spectrum of design adopting insanely detailed uppers. The Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ will not release, so check out these new images via TSG and let us know what you think, because you might not see these pop up much elsewhere.

I like 'em, dope concept. The ones who are hatin' are probably the same ones who need a common solid color sneaker to wear 'cause they have no sense of style. Be different, guys. Think outside the box..

So they give us a photoshop spoiler, dubbing these as a What The Foam concept, said that they were going to realease them, then a few days later, we see them on feet, dub it with a new nickname and come to find out that they don't release. Typical Jordan Brand bullsh-t has suddenly morphed over to Nike.

Gentry is raping foams sameway he raped j's ,this nigga gettin me mad, red foams look like they candy apples why cant they be metallic red, gold/chamelion ones look faded needs more gold and shinyness like the pewters and coppers, wtf is the point of making an electric green one again thas stupid, those silver/red shits are hideous, they should burn every pair they made of those galaxy shits, the golden state yellow ones are okay but too many colors take a break please you just released rookies and you already have wayyyyyy too many cw's slow down on the foams/rookies drop like 2 more af1/foam cw's and bring back the flightposite 1 or flightposite 3 -RT

I can picture you looking out into space through a telescope and seeing all the colors and calling the cosmos "MAD GAY". After all, these were modeled after the Hubble Telescope photos taken of space, fucking idiot. Hahaha
