Last week, Sneaker News introduced our ‘On The Fence’ segment, giving our readers the opportunity to vocalize (through a keyboard) their thoughts and mull the decision of copping or passing on a shoe that might not exactly be a ‘no-brainer’ pick-up. While any Air Foamposite release should clear off of store shelves very quickly, the timing of the ‘Electrolime’ release could be a potential decisive factor for this release. Some of your wallets may still be feeling the effects of the massive All-Star releases or even last week’s Air Jordan XIV drop, or perhaps you’re planning ahead and looking forward to the Air Jordan XII ‘Playoffs’ release or even the Air Yeezy 2 in April. Maybe ‘Electrolime’ is just a bit too ‘loud’ for you, or your Electric Green Foamposite Pros or even the Metallic Red Foams from early February are still holding you down firmly. Whatever the case may be, let us know what side of the fence you fall on the Electrolime Foamposite debate by discussing it in the comments section and voting in the quick and easy poll below!

Yo! For those who say the shoe is wack...... Blow deeeez! If you don't like them get the fuck off the page for them. Go look at a reebok, the yellow is dope, if you have style you see that. My only question was what am I going to wear with them. I came up with hot shit, like I always do...
I was sleeping on them, glad a grabed a pair thou! Pics dont do them any justice, look way diffrent in person!
I Have them and they look waaaayyyy better than this pick. Definitely worth every penny if your a REAL sneaker head. Just be careful because the shade of yellow may not be what you think.
and just like that!!! Wristbands are done at my Nikestore..so much for people being "On the fence", lol
Bottom line, I run a store by a House of hoops and I have to walk by it to make my deposit about 8:45am, if I can walk in and cop a 13 I will but I will NOT camp nor will I fight for a place in line to pay 242 bucks for a retail tag! Nike quit playin & hypebeasts fit a new hobby!
I´d cop if I had more cash but I need money to cop the bred 4´s and the bred 11´s and maybe the air jeezy 2´s if they drop em in europe, matter of fact i´m not even sure these will drop in europe
forget them foams im rocin my CLS 550 im on some other shit why would i pay so much money for some shoes that going to turn piss yellow.i cant get a room at the anaheim hilton for too nights and take my family to disneyland.i not a racist im a black male this goes out to everyone especially us stop buying stuff thats going to set u back...stack yo bread stop listening to ymcm.like pac said dont believe anything u read.Jay said better america gangsta ignorant shit listen to it.
-Add a royal blue translucent sole and accents = cop but like this f*#% no! I wear a size 12 and dont wear my coppers b/c they look huge on feet, same with these
Those are simple cops! If you can wear a galaxy designed shoe im quite sure it wouldnt be out of your ballpark to rock electro lime
I was always hopin for some yellow foams but, I'm not coppin, don't like em enough and I'm savin up for this Baltimore Sneaker Show. I love my Metallic Reds tho.
Nike can kick ricks for making Lemon Head looking kicks that don't even remotely resemble the Golden State Warriors colorway.
I really like these personally, at least a lot more then the galaxy's. I don't think I'll every buy a pair of foams though because of all the mayhem as well as the ridiculous retail price that is attached. sorry penny
Got mine today. I rather have these then a general release Jordan that will be re-retroed in 2 to 3 yrs fOr the 4th time. (with even cheaper quality). I miss the days when having a pair of XI's meant something.
niggas who saying they to bright haven't seen em in person all these pictures depend on lighting camera guy obviously had light ass lighting that makes it look bright but in a dim setting these kicks is straight fire
Pass. I was going to try for these, but after all the crap with the Galaxies, I'm done with Nike and their arrogance. There are better shoes out there for a lot less money and hassle. Good luck to all who are gonna try to cop.
Im not desperate for foams to absolutely must have these but they match up pretty nice with a couple of my teams in the tourney. With that bein said I've got bills to take care of 1st. If i come across them in my size for retail after that its a maybe.
Some folks say they to bright but they were meant 2 be golden state warriors colorway. So i think pretty sick just cause of that. Definitely Gettin them!!!
i was personally awaiting for a pair of yellow foamposites to release. but now after all this hype and shit, im gettin second thoughts, especially with that price tag. i could get 2 deion sanders wit that
the word "foamposite" just makes me livid or want to smack anyone asking if ur getting these. nike could drop the ugliest color possible and ppl would buy bc of galaxy bullish. shame. these are waaaay too Bright.
I hope whoever buys them off u pays u with counterfeit cash. U are the reason Nike can get away with so few GR's cause u doing their work for them. Shame on u don't call yourself a sneakerhead or a hustler. U r a disgrace to both
Ain't no family goin to Disney fr 220. A man not buying a shoe isn't going to solve anythin, and I have 300000 in property. If its not your cup of tea don't buy, but keep that bullshit to yourself
shut that shit up...you ever consider that people actually have the money for them but wanna pass? I swear dudes that use sneakers as a way of determining how much money someone has are dumb af...
PayPal doesn't deal with counterfeit cash chief. What size you wear kid, I'll hold a pair just for you. Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org. These sh!ts are fukin ugly, straight up clown shoes, Ronald McDonald steeze. I got the hook up on most releases and if they hot I'll cop to rock, if not I'll cop to make a couple bucks, it's the American way.
Words don't determine $$$ . But seeing as you took that to the head u might be one of those "broke" mf's.
