Earlier this year, Nike Sportswear went intergalactic with the Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’. For this special edition, they’re aiming for the paranormal as Sneaker News brings you a first look at a special pair of the Foamposites inspired by the upcoming film ‘ParaNorman’. The heel logo features a silhouette of Norman, a special boy who has the power to communicate with zombies, with a ‘ZzZzZz…’ detail on the heel-tab, and the unique graphic on the upper that features two tones of green mimicking the movie’s poster. The animation studio who produced ParaNorman is Portland-based LAIKA and is owned by Phil Knight; in addition, LAIKA and Nike Sportswear have teamed up before with the Nike Dunk High ‘Coraline’. We’ll keep you updated on the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘ParaNorman’ as more develops, so check out the images below and let us know what you think.

Did anyone notice the sole on this shoe is going to be green because the third picture bottom left corner it shows it...... LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOO
The soles have to be either black, that shade of green, or the shade of the shoe for these to be a PERFECT! Icy blue soles don't work for every pair of foams.
Nike Corp. is like "F Dis" we cashin in this year on all the hype. All of these shoes were not in the catalog to release possibly but hey, why not put more and more out. They will sell anyway. I definitely wanna see this colorway and see if it is worth $220. Three more Foam releases this year? They are going in. Zoom Rookie Galaxy is gonna sell out. They are finishing 2012 on a strong note.
I hope these look as dope as I think they'll be because this concer and overall idea seems sick. Please come through with full shoe shots ASAP lol!
sorry but im gonna heve to respectfully disagree with that
Yea they also tryin to have me end 2012 on a broke note! Just when you think you've got only 3 or 4 pick ups left for the year, they come outta left field with some random must have. This one looks dope n trippy, but probably involves some serious camping, something I can't do. If I can't show up at 5am and get a spot in line that'll actually produce a pair, then the shoe aint for me. at least not at retail
@flyguynameli That's cool, we're all entitled to our opinions. Doesn't matter, Just got off the phone with my boy out in Cali who works graphics and other animation disciplines for Disney/Pixar, and he said he heard from a friend that these were a special "friends and family" release like the Caroline dunks.
@VaSneehed @flyguynam. Regarding the exclusive release, i also heard the same From a friend of mine who's big on foams.
@OregonGrey hahahahaha someone just got caught in a lie
@VaSneehed Why would your Disney/Pixar friend know anything about these? ParaNorman is made by Laika. Phil Knight owns it.
wooow dead ass
