Straight from the slums of Shoalin? There’s obviously no overt Wu connection with the upcoming Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Electrolime’, but it’s hard to look at this black and yellow pair and not get a ‘Killa Beez’ vibe. Furthering the trend of attention grabbing colors applied to the groovy upper, the sneaker seems to be testing just how far the brighter looks can be pushed onto the Air Penny legacy. As the first of Foamposite Ones to hit after the recent ‘Galaxy’ madness, it will be interesting to see if the mayhem has a lasting effect on the retail arrival of future Foams going forward. Stay with us after the jump to get some close up shots of the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Electrolime’ from Kenlu, and let us know if you’ll be grabbing these on the March 17th release date. If you can’t wait until then, you can always get yourself a pair early on eBay.
Nike Air Foamposite One
if you guys like foams i have a pair of unreleased Obsidian Foamposites on my Youtube channel that i do a review on! http://youtu.be/4KQl7Q_JoKE
Supposed to be called the Golden State Foams, there;s hints of navy blue on them and in addition the insole has retro Nike logo
Not trippin on foam hype who cares? I'm tired of seeing geeks n ****riders jumpin on this faoms 1 bs it gets somewhat old. They need to do it like back in da day with these so called hot releases. Just release all of them instead of 1 style of shoe .
Just last year I seen Foams sit on the shelves, & now they sell out super quick. I'm more of a SB person So I kinda feel for your HARDCORE FoamHeads, To see people that probably don't know a damn thing about them, other than that "they're IN" go cop & or resell...
These are nice but i missed the metalic red pair going on a search for them at a good price hopfully.
These are actually better when you see them in person IMO. These were released here in Manila, last January 29. It's bright, yes, but it is still dope, especially for the summer.
Galaxy foams are gettin re-released without the glow in the dark sole! shhhhhhh, don't tell anybody lol!
im not buying anymore foams until they make a pair to top my COPPERS....an i dnt see that happening soooooooooo..........
NIKE is severely over saturating the market with FOAMS......some of the weakest ones ive ever seen right here.......but of course they'll sell out cuz its "cool" to wear foams right now....smh.
These pics make em look a lot more highlighter/neon yellow. Every other earlier picture had them looking mustard like. Foamed out here tho. The ones to get this year were the Galaxies and Metallic reds. Was lucky enough to get one pair.
Despite them not being the best looking foamposite and most people saying they wont buy them I'm willing to bet my life that they sell out on release day. Its simply the society we live in, even if normal customers don't buy it, because its a foam most resellers and resell website will buy them up to see if they can flip a profit. I'd buy these if I saw them in an outlet like the cough drops were back in july of last year. If you actually like these, no knock, buy away. I'm hoping those "Space Jam" foams get released, beautiful shoe!
This shioe is horrendous, I copped the metallic reds and there is absolutly no comparison, those are SICK by all means. These make foams look bad.
Exactly. It's completely different now. In 2010 Pearls and Cough Drops hit Nikestore clearance for $120 and as low as $90 at some outlets. Now look at the price/demand for them!
The USA's look pretty sweet, gold/silver/bronze, not sure they will beat the Copper's, but should be close. Also, the space jams will be pretty nice. But to me, the all blacks will truly be sweet. I miss the black outsole, the translucent looks nice, but loses it's appeal to quickly, rather the black which looks great for many years. There will be a lot of hype on the all white's as well, but I will pass on those.
cant over saturate anything when they so limited.. if they did them like the cough drops you would see them in the outlets for $90 all day long
Looks no worse than the rest of the foams, sorry but the structure/design of the shoe itself is bad. Ronald McDonald is what I think of when I see them. These are a little loud, but saying it makes foams look bad well.....I think its a little too late for that, there is a reason why when they 1st came out in the late 90s nobody brought them, sell the hype all you want but you want see me walking around with these on my feet.
OK THE SHOES THEMSELVES ARE NOT UGLY. I DONT BUY HYPE BUDDY IVE BEEN COLLECTING FOR 10 YEARS PLUS ROOKIE
LOL...so you missed the first 14 years or so of og releases...Starting your collection with retros makes you a hype rookie.
