Some of the most recent contributions to Sneaker News on the Foamposite front have been custom designs in a variety of applications, but here’s one that just comes from the factory in a colorway we’ve never before seen on this Nike Basketball modern classic. The Nike Air Foamposite One has never been done in a yellow shade like this upcoming ‘Electrolime’ release for 2012, though you can’t help but wonder if this could have been close to the series’ default look had Penny Hardaway not been traded away from Golden State on Draft Day 1993. Historical connotations not withstanding, this is a vibrant look perfectly timed for the return of warm weather, though some have questioned the nickname given their decidedly yellow (and not green) appearance in each round of preview images so far. Would you have preferred something greener like last year’s Electric Green shade as seen on the Foamposite Pro, or are you already budgeting for one of the most eye-catching Foam One releases yet? Click through to see more, stick with Sneaker News for the US release date, and check out the sample already available from sandwichpress on eBay.
Does ANYONE know where I can find a pair of Pearls. I missed out when they released. I'd trade my Pewters and my Pine Greens for a pair of Pearls. I'm a nine by the way.
I hope Nike is releasing the Metallic Pink Foam Ones early summer 2012 like June or July if not sooner.
Red foams n yellow foams for 2012, I'm on 'em....they go gud wit my royals, pewters, n electrics....
I absolutely love the foams that are dropping next year. The Red, Yellow and Pink are all gonna shine in the 2012 summer.
Def goin to break necks, as well as stir up some controversy. If your all about simplicity and subtle sneakers, these def aren't for you. But if you like it when people stare at your kicks as you walk past them, then these Electrolime foamposite one's are for you. I've seen them in person, and these pics do show the true color of this sneaker. What you guys think?? sALuTe
