After a bit of a cool down following the Black Friday ‘Stealth’ drop, the Nike Air Foamposite One is ready to make a big impact on 2013. Sneaker News scooped you on the ‘Phoenix Suns’ and all-white editions’ March release dates earlier this month (and might the ‘Knicks’ colorup join them?), and now we’re just over a week away from the first Foam Ones of the year. The ‘Fighter Jet’ Foamposite One Premium will be joined by an Air Force 1 Downtown with a similar greyscale camo print, but these steal the show with impressive details including the military-inspired symbols and hangtags, plus a sick bred carbon fiber plate. Stick with Sneaker News as we approach the Saturday, February 9th release, and if you just can’t wait, grab yours today on eBay.
Nike Air Foamposite One Premium
Black/Hyper Red-Dark Grey-White
I am going to camp out in my house lol and wait until the snow storm pass then go a cop a pair thats even if the store open early
This is the first foam where pictures actually do more justice than the sneaker in person. Not a huge fan of them, but I love the theme and design. However, the fact that Nike has yet again increased the Foam another $10 is also a tad depressing as well. Can anyone tell me if the $10 price jump is permanent on all "One's", or just because they labeled these "Premium"?
@Jumpfan23 How do you! You think that foam material is cheap? The coast of shipping it to and from the factory? Economics son! You have to take this all in consideration, remember their in the business to make a profit not to make a lose
@dopeman978 @Jumpfan23 Nope Nope Nope. You can't blame the economics of the shoe process on the Foamposite's rise in price. You can't blame it on any of the recent shoe increases. The only way you can get away something like that is if you KNOW that's what it is. As in, you see facts on the increase on the price of oil and how it affects freight shipping, or other stuff like that. You don't know that anymore than I know that Nike is simply increasing the price of the shoes because they know more and more people are going foam crazy. Back when I got my 09 eggplants, I was able to just walk into the mall in the morning and pick up a pair with some fellow sneakerheads. Now every foam release is something crazy. Any shoe Nike knows people goes crazy for has seen a pretty steep price increase over the past year and a half. Hell $200 for a pair of 3's? You going to blame that on the economics of the shoe business, manufacturing process, and shipping costs? Hell, how do you even know how much foams cost to make? You have an inside man at Nike? For all we know that shit could be cheaper than a pair of leather kicks because of the huge pieces being put together. And shut up about what he should do if the price isn't right for him. People been saying that crap for over a year now. LEAVE IT ALONE
And if the price ain't right for you, you can 1. Don't buy the shoe or 2. Get a bootleg pair that uses cheap material and techniques to make a copy cat shoe
@metaleggman @Jumpfan23 but you know the economy has been messed up for awhile and what NIKE spends in making the show, ship and packaging all comes back us the consumer, but it's the way iris, the shoes are what people want, we expect the best in these shoes, from looks down to the glue of the shoe. Nut come one, 235 isn't that bad! If you got the bread this shouldn't be and issue! It's either you cop or pass!
lol this guy is trip. Chill main Burn 1
