WEST - Nike Air Foamposite One “OG Royal”

There’s no surprise that the sneaker that started it all took the express lane to the Final Four. However, the landscape of Foamposites has changed rather drastically over the last two years; at the end of 2011, the OG Royal would’ve been crowned the winner without opposition, but things are a bit different this time around. Is the original still the best of all-time, or will it take an early exit?

SOUTHWESTNike Air Foamposite One “ParaNorman”

The Nike Air Foamposite One “ParaNorman” grabbed social media by the horns and released the shoes by stirring up the Twitter community with the #WeirdWins campaign. A later eBay-exclusive auction release (which resulted in insanely high prices) made the ParaNormans one of the most expensive and hard-to-obtain sneaker releases of all-time. With special packaging and the smoky green graphics, this Foamposite release is the antithesis to the OG Royal and makes quite a case for being the best ever.

MATCHUP #1 - The original Royal faces off against the ParaNorman in a true coin-flip. Which will move on to the Championship round?

EASTNike Air Foamposite One “Copper”

Even after several Retro releases of the Foamposite One and Pro, Nike never quite hit the “Penny” concept on the head until it released this unique “Copper” in 2010. Since then, the Coppers have become one of the most in-demand Foamposites ever, and any attempt to duplicate the colorway was never met to much fanfare. That makes the Copper Foams one of the most distinguished sneakers of all-time.

SOUTHEASTNike Air Foamposite One “Galaxy”

Changing the game is what Nike does, but the Galaxy took it a step further and relayed a message back to the company, forcing it to change the way we, as consumers, buy sneakers. The massive hoopla around this magnificent sneakers was justified, as it featured the glorious Galaxy graphic on the upper (the first time a Foamposite went non-tonal) and the glow-in-the-dark outsole for true neck-breaking quality. Is it the best of all-time? We’ll wait and see.

Okay... People saying all this hype stuff, well ill say this, IMO Paranormans are the sickest foam colorway out now. I think the galaxies are ugly, but if someone offered me Royals & Paranormans and said choose one, AND YOU CAN NOT RESELL, i think i'd choose the paranormans. I freaking love royals, but those paranorms are too nice

i remember seeing the coppers and eggplants in store for months/years and nobody bought them and they had to lower the price on the copper($175 and then $160).

i always thought foams were ugly and most people think so too. if they weren't ugly then why no body bought them a few years ago?(except for some ppl ), why they used to sit in shelves for months/years? 

but today thanks to the hype created by websites, twitter RSVP, and rappers who get pay to wear shoes etc, theres not a color way that doesn't sell out in minutes. 

we are all victims of these companies/organization with crazy business and brainwashing strategy.

OG Royals and Galaxies for me, the galaxies creted one of the biggest shoe stirs ever, wish i could have got a pair in the UK, but i would have liked to see the Red and Black pros in the final 4 thats my favourite foam of all time

people say the paranormans and the galaxies are hyped, but they are hyped for a reason c'mon now use your damn brains! they are hands down the best designs for the foamposites of all time.

This is the Final Four I thought it was going to be. I was pulling for the Eggplants though. Hopefully the final will be Royals and Coppers. But there is no telling how much a factor hype will play in this. The Galaxies are beautiful and could win it all easily. I'll pulling for the Royals because that's the shoe got made me into a sneakerhead. Love the Coppers and the way they pop. The only 1 in the Final Four I don't car too much about is the ParaNorman

@kburr009 people that think if you don't pick the OG = hype beast are just booty hurt they couldn't get their hands on some pairs of foams.

@newsouth912 See guys you need to be more like this nigga. He pick royals and copper because he had good reason, not cause he does not want to be seen as a hype beast or boot hurt cause he couldn't get pair of gaxies or PN.

@johnhopkins88 thank you bruh for finally saying the realist shit...all these so called "sneakerheads" keep whining because the OG color ways got bounced out by the new color ways lol...shit is comedy, new or OG the paranormans has to be one of the craziest and creative designs ever put on a shoe...it's just a good lookin shoe overall...think the real reason these "classic beasts" r just mad cuz they couldn't get their hands on something exclusive such as the normans lol

mnl809

@Jetlifitsuks2bu  @mnl809 that doesn't mean that those green shits are better than the eggplants, its a personal choice, that only means that more ppl (Sneakernews visitors) like the green shits better than eggplants. to me eggplants are way better.

mnl809
mnl809

@johnhopkins88 @mnl809 really? go to the store now and good luck finding them. they used to sit on shelves for months if not years, now they disappear in matter of minutes regardless of the color way.

i got my coppers for $175 at expressions store in boston MA, they released on feb 2010 and i copped them in sep 2010 (7 month after they released) and same thing with the eggplants but paid $200

@filaking @wcwktb I sure hope it didn't because it sounds like you're a fan of the coppers and royals over the galaxies and paranormans. (Though I don't hope for anyone getting cancer haha)

@iHypeBeast @kburr009 You're just booty hurt you didn't like foamposites early enough to get the og colorways.  Prolly didn't even know of the OG colorways until this tourney *FLAME ON!*

@EdT213 @johnhopkins88 YES finally The Lord as answer my prayers and people that are real have finally commented. At this time I would like to say @JakeeAD is the number one fake nigga on this site and fits the description of "classic beast" that is descriped by EdT213.
