Nike Air Foamposite Pro – Gem Green – Black
We know you can’t get enough of Air Foamposites, so here’s a first detailed look at the upcoming Black/Gem Green colorway, currently slated for July 2012; it’s got the classic color-blocking with the black neck, collar, and Swoosh, with a translucent outsole, but the upper features an interesting iridescent ‘chameleon’-like finish that looks something like a mix between the Eggplants and the Coppers. Could this be a ‘Bronze’ colorway, fitting in with the upcoming Olympic theme of the Air Foamposite One ‘Gold’? Although the product info coincides with the ‘Gem Green’ that was intially previewed back in mid-January, it’s rather interesting to see that there isn’t much ‘Green’ about these. We’ll keep you updated on more developments regarding this colorway and all other Foamposite news, so check out the gallery below and stick with Sneaker News for more.
Nike Air Foamposite Pro
I really hope sneakerheads sleep on these it will just make it easier for me to cop at retail. These are going to be a awesome release for true Foamheads like me.
Now that I remember, a while back, they said that the gem greens were supposed to be the opposite of the dark pines. Since the dark pines had that shimmery color underneath the green, it seems they brought that shimmery color to the top and put the dark green under. Since its probably iridescent, they green should show in certain light
These are iridescent Maroon I'm diggin these more and more. After a couple of glances I have come to the conclusion that they are more of a late summer/fall foamposite.
These are the Diarreah foams and the pink are the Pepto Bismols :( What a weak week for foams imo, to each his own tho...
More like gem red but I love these. Still want to see them in person before I make the final decision.
I see cats hating on me. Lol I'm copping every Foamposite that drops just because I can and it won't hurt my pockets in the least. LMAO @broke sneakerheads. Why are you even on here? On your girls PC you probably can't even afford a computer. I'm loving the idea of the Polarized pink as well. NICE
THE EGGPLANT PROS....when its all said and done. Despite how we feel, good or bad.....these will sell out. Old sneakerheads will continue to talk shyt and youngsters will continue to get excited about remixed shoes. Im a old head (as far as the sneaker game goes) and while Im talking shyt, Ill probably buy these too.
Dirty eggplant pros, sort of surprised that these are releasing. There are ENDLESS options for foams and they show up with these??????????????
Wow it funny how they already showed these b4 and called them the " team USA" and ppl was goin crazy.
I missed the eggplant and the pines so these r going 2 be perfect for me, good lookin out Nike, u came through !!! Father Son Holy Ghost...Peace
Nike shldve named the color shade Autumn, makes way more sense than Gem Green, had me thinkin the shoes were gonna b vibrant emerald or sumthin
I was at the sole collector event in Vegas where Gentry showed off a bunch of the upcoming foams. If these are what he showed there, the color changes depending the way you hold them so the color shifts from green to gold. Gotta wait for some high res pictures to confirm this though.
Love the foams at first sight since 97 but its sad to see soon they will turn into what the air max 95s have turned into today. An iconic shoe that they have just flooded the market with but i understand business is business and profit is king.
I bet this is a bad photo and these are gonna be sick when the sun hits em and u get different colors depending on the angle. *Hopefully*
Well the more of you that don't like the shoe, the easier it is for me to get a pair rock this with a black t so easy.
U have to look real hard to get a hint of green on them but it's there but i wouldnt call them Gem Green
was really excited because of the "green" it was supposed to be...i don't see any green! kinda looks like a copper plant (copper + eggplant) ^ credit to @sean e kicks for the idea! not sure about these yet but def love the pro foam more than the one
Yeah I'm coppin these, but they won't match anything! Lol They Look like a light purple/maroon version of the eggplants. I was thinking about maching them with the glossy maroon g-shock but I have to see these in person before I try and match anything with them. Foamposite Pro Gem Green > Foamposite Pro Metallic Silver-Crimson. I have to say it's better than Nike dropping another green Foamposite Pro.
seriously, WTF is up with the clear bottom. Would work out much better if it was done selectively, I'd MUCH, MUCH rather have a blacked out or smoked bottom.
Your complaining yet your still copping smh. Typical zombie. This is why Nike does wait they do and mission accomplished!
nope...showed silver/crimson ones, electrolime, metallic red, all white, and the color shifting pair
Agreed! All I want is another chance to get the all black foamposite one with the black soles...... Damn Gentry!
