The campaign to promote Breast Cancer Awareness has gained an immense amount of steam over the last decade, starting from the tiny pink ribbons pinned to shirt collars to apparel brands creating pinked-out collections that directly support the research fund. The idea of ‘thinking pink’ has spilled over to footwear, as Nike Sportswear plans to release an all-pink Foamposite One in late November, although no ties to a charitable organization have been established. Does Nike plan to connect these to the Kay Yow fund, or is Nike just taking advantage of an undeniable ‘trendy’ colorway, regardless of what it represents? Another detail to note is that the official color is indeed Polarized Pink rather than ‘Pearlized Pink’, although that doesn’t make any sort of change as to how impactful these will be once they release. If you’re set on copping a pair, skip the wait and cop a pair now from skit_japan on eBay.
Nike Air Foamposite One
Polarized Pink/Metallic Silver-Black-White
NYC Nike Air Foamposite One Polarlized Pink is releasing 11/21/12. its not 23rd anymore. i checked all the footlocker and footaction sites. its the day before thanksgiving. mark ur calender that its Nov. 21st is the release date people
Ive been waiting for this release for the longest. Really looking forward to copping. Fuck what a hater say pink is just a color to me.
MostYou guys that Keep Saying That Pink Is A Girls Color, Guess You Don't Know That At The beginning Of The Turn If The Century Both Boys And Girls We're Both Wearing Pink. And yes That Means That Most
I don't give a fuck what nobody says. Pink is a fucking color. If you not confident enough in your sexuality to wear pink, don't bash any other guy for wearing it. GROW THE FUCK UP. Too many people care what strangers think about them. I'm going to get them and I'm going to rock them every where
Not coppin if some of the proceeds dont go to breast cancer or similar research funds. Defeats the purpose
I love sneakerhead logic the KDIV Aunt Pearls are an acceptable pink shoe yet when it comes to a foamposite it's all of a sudden gay to wear a pink shoe. Now that is what i call a contradiction haha I ordered mine early so I can wear em to a breast cancer event.
Likely Your one Of Your Great Grandfathers Most Likely Wore Pink. I'm Sure If You Would Have Cold Them Gay For Wearing Pink You Personally Would Have Gotten Your Ass Beat Fit Calling Them that.
@boodle81 NO pink shoe is acceptable. nothing pink, in fact. might as well wear a fuckin tiara.
@boodle81 hell yea... tired gettin mine b4 October ended but I gotta wait til next sat to get mine... they are really dope in person too. Arguably da best pair of foams to drop dis yr. Dats until da stealths drop
@boodle81 totally agree, the same ppl wearing breast cancer socks, calling the shoe gay, Whaaaatttt?? Whatever I plan on copping & rocking, let somebody call me gay and see if I care, it's what I like
