The Sneaker News March Madness Foamposite Tournament kicked off a few weeks ago and with each passing week, we took a giant leap forward toward naming the greatest Nike Air Foamposite sneaker of all-time. We’ve reached the iconic round of four finalists otherwise known as The Final Four, and quite honestly, the results aren’t too surprising as all four #1 overall seeds in their respective regions had made it this far. We’ve got all the results from the Elite 8 voting if you’re curious to see just how dominant each shoe against its opponent, so take a look below and stay tuned for the Final Four voting tonight at 9PM EST.
FINAL FOUR VOTING BEGINS APRIL 4th AT 9PM EST
The OG Royal dominates in convincing fashion as it moves to the Final Four – as expected.
Perhaps the toughest match-up of the Elite 8 turned out to be a blowout win for the Coppers, leaving the last Foamposite Pro in the dust.
The power of ParaNorman proved to be too strong to the Eggplants, which many believed had potential to pull off an upset.
Galaxy does it again as it beats out the Metallic Red with ease.

iHypeBeast sleeps and lives off this site everyone. he dont have shit to do but troll the comments and call people hypebeast. hes Lil B
im calling royals vs galaxys like Ive been doing since day one. Royals for the win because with out them the galaxys wouldnt exist.
Easy prediction. Knew this would happen.
Love to see foams in retro blue as a Foam One. Same with Pearls
its gonna be paranormans vs galaxies... why? bc those are the most hyped foams... if it really came down to it, the best one is the dr dooms... along with the blackouts, pearls, cactuses, and the pines... this means nothing bc it is all hype..
This is the final 4 I picked from the beginning. If the final two are not the royal and copper, i'm never visiting this site again!
This is definitely the toughest SN Tournament, same shoe, different colorways, but all GREAT colorways!
@bigavel they got cheated for real *sheds a single tear*
@JakeeAD nigga please. i visit this site few time though day for news and just make comment to call out on people like your bitch ass that want to say the old foams are so much better then new ones and anyone who like the new ones are hype beast. I do call people hype beast because they fucking hype up the eggplant foams even though it is ugly as fuck or they fucking hype up the royals because its OG.
@JakeeAD hes an undercover hypebeast
@turt123 your a hype beast! The only reason eggplants even made it so far is because niggas like you hype it up!
@addicted2kixthe pearls were always considered a sub-foamposite because of the swoosh. i like some of the pros, but none of them ever had the same appeal as the "one". the pearls are dope, but you can't expect a sub-genre to go too far in a tournament of OG's
@asdfjkln64 FINAL SOMEONE else who is not afraid to speak their mind!
@LeoMizrahi Love the variety on this site, I personally think Dooms are one of the ugliest foams lol, but its all opinions at this point. Royals, metallic reds, and stealths are the nicest IMO
@LeoMizrahi SHUT THE YOUR FAKE ASS UP!!!!!! You know that paranormans and galaxies wil the finally two because they are the best looking ones. You also know that dr doom was one of the ugliest foams ever! Just stop trying to look your not a hype beast.
@S09442 your the fucking idiot if you think eggplants look good! They ugly as fuck.
@troysumpter The finaly two will be Galaxy vs ParaNorman so get your bitch ass ready to never visit this site again . I am fucking tired of you niggas trying your hardest to not look like a hype beast! It is alright to admit that Galaxy or ParaNorman look better than royals or the copper, because it is the truth. Both the royals and the copper are just basic, and if it was not for the fact that royals are OG and that foamposites are Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway (penny = copper for those don’t get it) shoes they would not made it so far.
@troysumpter Sorry bro, but YOU KNOW it's gonna be Paranormans and Galaxys. It's not who I voted for either, but the hypesters will vote that way. That's all they know. This shits rigged
@AljosaCikojevic Are you blind my nigga? Its right under the names.
@iHypeBeast son get off the computer you spend to much time on here, fuck foamposites thats why i only buy you FUBU at ROSS
@iHypeBeast @troysumpter OK... For 1, remove my dick from your mouth you invisible bitch-nigga. 2, the galaxy and paranorman are in my opinion, the best designed foamposite, period! I own both pairs and love them to death, but the tournament should be geared towards originality. The royals were a ground breaking color way and introduced a new shoe and material concept seen on a basketball shoe. just when everyone counted the foamposites out, they came and hit the sneaker world with the coppers. Now I'm NOT saying that the paranormans or galaxy's are whack in any way. they are not the easiest kicks to just trhow on without throwing on an outfit to compliment them. they are show-pieces. stunt kicks that you break out to show your status in the sneaker world. But nothing gets respects like the coppers or the royals. debate me all you want, and get as ignorant on the internet as you possibly can. we know posers, cornballs and fuck-niggas like you will gladly fall in to hype and then troll the internet to gain the respect you can't get outside of the cyber world. but enjoy your day, cock sucker. i'm in Brooklyn, NY... Not a hard guy to find.
@Cop em and Rock em SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU FAKE BITCH ASS NIGGA! YOU FUCKING KNOW THAT PARANORMANS AND GALAXYS LOOK THE BEST AND ARE THE MOST UNIQUE FOAMS! YOU ARE JUST TOO FUCKING AFRAID TO ADMIT IT BECAUSE YOU DO NOT WANT TO LABELED AS A "HYPE BEAST"!
@Cop em and Rock em @troysumpter It's not rigged. It's just the age level of visitors to the site. And knowledge. I'll be the first to tell you that I didn't know shit about foams until the royal blue rerelease a few yrs back. And then the pros released, but I can't do pros. The metallic reds hooked me, though. The one thing I hate, same for AJ 5s, 3s, 6s, 11s, 16s is that damn yellowing sole. Same shit on the foams, which is why I avoid translucent soles. But the comfort is amazing and now I'm forever tuned in. Woulda done that earlier had foams not been $180 then, but now in today's world, it's a bargain. Smh
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite nigga I do have all the foams and willing to show proof. How about you? Post like to photo with all the fomas you have bitch or are you fake ass nigga?
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite I though you had 2 pairs of each foam? what's your point nigga?
@iHypeBeastdaddy nigga,i am grown ass man. You can't be taking about spending time on the computer when you go make profile so you can be my "daddy". Also, I buy my own shoes with my own money because unlike someo of you niggas i am not broke ass who can only get used old shoes and call people that get new ones a hype beast even through i would suck dick for them.
@JakeeAD wow, you wish another human to die because they call you ass out for being a OG hype beast. someone is butt hurt.
@addicted2kix @troysumpter the pearl color way isn't an original color on a basketball shoe and it is a Pro model. The swoosh is what decided if it made it any further. the copper is what resurrected the foamposite to the mainstream again. that shiny metallic copper on a basketball shoe will stand out anywhere, even from a far distance. again, i like the pearls a lot. but they didn't stand a chance. the only 2 pro models that would have shaken this tournament up are the red and black, and the silver and black. I would have enjoyed that rumble. lol
@iHypeBeast @troysumpter they won't admit it because they think its cool to say OG's are better than anything new which is not true. For instance, I like the crimson pros better than the pearls, Dr dooms our the OG silver and black. I'm ok with change and dope designs, but i'm going with the simplistic game changers. The paranormans and galaxy's have estrogen their respect, but its still fairly recent since both shoes have come out all the lames will forget about them in two years when new foams come out with designs on them
@troysumpter 1) if your dick was in my mouth i would be agreeing with you.
2) If that is the real reason you pick them, then its fine and i respect you for it. I am just tried of people who know they would love to own pair of paranorman or galaxy and think they their awesome, but won't admit because the don't want be labeled as a hype beast and/or can't get them without robing a bank.
3) i am not not cock sucker or a troll, just real
@NuttyKicks @Cop em and Rock em @troysumpter Now, i agree with the yellowing of the soles on the posites. its annoying as shit, but its actually avoidable. i also agree with the age of the visitors. but its dumb sites like these that post pics of the latest kicks 20 times a day before the shoe even comes out. this site is run by corny shoe collectors who report on certain exclusives later than other sneaker blogs. It's a shame that this site has been around longer than alot of the newcomers, but do freshman shit when they should be trendsetters. but this tournament is actually interesting and if the majority of the visitors of this site were people from the late 90's in terms of collecting like myself, then the outcome would be inevitable. but its a mix of emotions on here and a battle between a sick shoe with a monotone color scheme or the same shoe with some sick graphics on them with a GITD outsole. I love all 4 sneakers and like i told the dickhead bellow this comment, i own them all. But i'll go for simplicity over the graphic any day!
