Perhaps Foamposites are getting a bit too “color-happy” with the Pearlized Pink and Electrolime varieties, but later this year Nike Sportswear is going back to dark and gritty with the release of the Nike Air Foamposite One “Stealth”. Sneaker News was first to show you this colorway back in April, but here we have another look at this purported Holiday 2012 release; it combines a tonal black upper with Stealth Grey hints and a translucent outsole, somewhat akin to the ‘Blackout’ Foamposites that have been skyrocketing in price lately. Are you happy that Foams are getting back to their darker-colored roots, or would you like to see more experimentation with colorways and graphics?

im so glad i got the cough drops at dtlr for 180 last year watch when these drop and i wear the coughdrops hypebeast gon say i wish i got the black and red foams instead
its crazy how the cough drops were never hyped and look 10 times better than these yall who sayin must cop some hypebeast
They seem so untraditional since they don't have that sheen, kinda like the eggplants. Not sure about these, if i get foams i wanna make sure they pop
i would love to see a dynamic blue foamposite pro, these are nice and are a must have as long as they are not sold out when i get to purchase them
@Facsimile I don't like the shoes but i like ur variation in comments lol
@mrambition101 is there a reason you posted 8 comments all about the same thing, with some of them being the same comment lol?
@mrambition101 I got mine for $130 lmao but yea I think foams wouldve stood a GR release if it wasnt foe the hype it got smh
@mrambition101 cough drops were sittin on shelves forever..shits were in outlets in GA..went down to 130...and $150 in footactions
@umdaman They're not black, they have a real dark and greyish look to them in person. Gentry said on Twitter several times back in July that the Black ones were coming out along with the stealth, but only time will tell if those will make it in 2012 or 2013.
@BallHard15 i agree they look too dull..they dont stand out at all..these r cool to cop to get customized tho
@deurope0927 yea that would be a great colorway
@mrambition101 when they foam hype started everybody ran and got em...shit was funny..im from NY...everybody used to be lookin at me crazy when i brought out my old foams in ga..now they all rockin them..shit crazy
@VaSneehed @SDotEdwards @mrambition101 u bugging cough drops aint shit, im glad it didnt get hype allowed me to cop it for cheap. Honestly every shoe nike release shld be GR but they too greedy for that smh
