Nike Sportswear’s upcoming release of the ‘Gym Green’ colorway of the Nike Air Foamposite Pro has stirred up an interesting debate in our comments corner among our readers. Where exactly does ‘Gym Green’ appear in the shoe? It’s rather clear that the green hue does show up on the AIR notation on the tongue as well as the Swoosh and FOAMPOSITE lettering on the heel-tab, but is that enough for these to be dubbed ‘Gym Green’ when its used so sparsely? The hue of the upper, which has an iridescent ‘chameleon’ effect, is like a mash-up of Copper, Eggplant, and Pine Green, giving this colorway a good-enough distinction to be a must-have come next Saturday. We’ve got a first detailed look at this release just below, so take a look at the gallery and let use know if these are already on your ‘copped’ list! Photos: itsb
Nike Air Foamposite Pro
so i spoke to one of the guys who works at footlocker who i've talked kicks and basketball with a few times, and he said they're getting tons of these so that everyone that morning will prob get. but to anyone who has seen them do they look more like eggplants or more like coppers? if it's the latter, i'm all over them, but i don't like the eggplants so much personally.
with the uptempos coming out on the 1st and the aj6 coming out the wk after that, i can make a easy pass on these and the aj12
The view I got at hoh they really did look like a great color blend of coppers and eggplants...kinda shifts shades with different movements and light affects, there pretty nice to those of you throwing salt on em!
Best foam to release since Eggplants, Coppers, and Pine Greens. And this is a mash up of all 3! So whats not to love! And they AREN'T limited like the Galaxy foams, so there's no hypebeastery resale kid sh*t... so you don't have to feel like a fake, being all embarrassed when wearing em! Nice. #SoleCollector/NotAsneakerhead
On the Fence, got another look again today. This will be hard, plus I will be in Orlando on release day. I know nothing about their release day fracases!!
Basically the shoe is the pro version of the eggplants in person. Believe me cause I will be copping
Copped I'm loving these!! But I wish Nike Sportswear would release some of the OG Foamposite Pro colorways like University Blue or Royal Blue. The Metallic Silver-Crimson appears to be a Foamposite of the year candidate. Once I saw that the sole was orange and not red I was sold. The Polarized Pinks will be dope too. I wonder what Foams are dropping Feb/Mar 2013. Keep making Foams Like but thake into consideration what the foamheads want.
Yeah air 6 olyimpics are the filling week, so it is quite hard to debate to go with both or just one. These foams aren't convicing meto much tho.
