With the field of 8 set in the Sneaker News March Madness Foamposite Tournament, it’s time to get the votes in and move this thing forward! Four number 1 seeds, three number 2 seeds, and one lucky number 6 seed make up this crop, but “upsets” are still likely to happen – but only if you vote! All four regions in the Elite 8 is up for voting right now so click through below.
ELITE 8 VOTING IS NOW CLOSED!
The original colorway that started it all faces off against a tough opponent in the “Blackout”. Which will prevail and move on?
The Coppers and Pearls could’ve gone 1a and 1b in terms of seeding, so it truly is a toss-up as to which of the two will advance to the Final Four.
The ParaNormans are the favorite, but don’t sleep on the Eggplants.
Does the Cinderella story stop here, or will the Metallic Red pull of an incredible upset against the Galaxy?
Filed under: Foamposite
I still think those candy floss pink foams, shoulda beat the valentines red ones. But we all know the Galaxy wins over all, so wouldn't really matter. The kids LOVE a theme, which is why Paranorman will be 2nd. They also both happen to be "limited". Nike sure do know how to manipulate young impressionable minds!
I hate to say it but I know it'll come down to the paranormans and the galaxies...... I hope I'm wrong
Yall are all lunchin How the fuck are the Dr. Dooms not in the elite eight? Get the Coppers the fuck outta here
Goddamn i seriously can't decide between the normans and the eggplants other then that Royals, Coppers, Reds are going to the next round
royals win easily. pearls win on a tuff one eggplants with the upset and galaxy over the metallic reds
Royal, Copper, Eggplant, Galaxy. Those are my votes even though I think the Eggplants will lose to the ParaNormans. If either the Galaxy or ParaNormans win it all, I will be highly upset. The Galaxy's are fiya but the hype has just killed the shoe for me
Metallic Reds are my favorite I got them, Paranormans, Black outs, and my second fav the Coppers...not into the eggplants i don't like purple galaxies are iight but i like the opponent better, i love the copers and the blackouts have my favorite color so i chose them over the OG's
Final Two will be either:
ParaNorman vs. Galaxy
Off course I know all you "i am not a hypebeast" niggas want it to be Royal vs. Copper in the end.
If those Paranormans go any further than this it will be a damn shame. I was just happy to see the metallic red's get past the way over hyped but continuously sold on ebay pink foams.
without the hype, how can anyone really choose paranormans over eggplants? Idk... they always looked kinda tacky to me...
@Thigh_pillowz I dont think anyone ever thought it wouldn't just be a competition between Galaxy and Paranorman. After all, they are the only 2 that were limited i.e hypebeast ones. For me it would either be Eggplant or Coppers, but each to their own i guess.
@PhilTyrus Dr. Dooms are "aight" at best. At the end of the day, Black and White is boring as fuck. I personally think Nike threw them in last minute as part of the fantastic four pack as a marketing ploy, cause they needed a gimmick to sell. The shoes really have no relation to the Marvel character. Now the Coppers, pure genius "Penny" Hardaway..."Penny" color shoes. Limited or not those are best the foams to date. Thankful they dropped in pre-hypebeast era.
@PhilTyrus You know the foamposite is pretty much all about Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway right? And the colour of a "penny" is copper... so they are pretty much the ULTIMATE foam! Just saying.
@PhilTyrus dr dooms are ugly as hell.
@Da_Real_Big_lnfiniteShut your broke ass up. I got four pairs of every foams because I AM RICH BITCH!!!

@212TP Because Eggplants look ugly as fuck
@Kardi why? There "all black" foams coming out soon, the stealths isn't special. The galaxy on the other had in unquie.
@iHypeBeast i like both releases..but for me personally are stealths more dope and you can match them with whatever you want)) apropos i still no see difference between stealths and "Total Crimson/Black-Cool Grey summer '13 " i still think that they are usin pic of stealths hahaha
