Remember when Penny Hardaway himself showed us this Nike Air Foamposite One colorway back in February of this year? Another angle of the sneakers has finally shown up, pretty much promising that they’ll make it to retail sooner or later. The upper has a blue base that looks not too far off from the OG royal, save for the fact that there appears to be a metallic sheen sort of in the same vein as the “Metallic Red” and “Suns” pairs. Tell us if this Nike Foamposite sneaker is one you’re looking forward to and check back in for updates regarding the rumored September 2013 release.

This is what I've concluded based on Nike releases the past few years: Nike's design team is spotty, but their marketing team is on point.  Ask yourself, when's the last time you waited in line for a week for a pair of adidias, reebok, or other brand of shoes (i.e. you, not are there lines for them)?  Most likely never, but if you have, it's most definitely not a regular occurrence.  That's not to say the brands don't have hot ticket items, but Nike is basically just a marketing company nowadays.   Though their distribution just seems whack.  People are lining up at footlocker?  Forreal?  That's like lining up at McDonalds for the McRib.   And yet somehow the marketing peeps get you to do it.   I'll be honest, in terms of clothing, there is a certain level of "fast-food-ness" to the stuff Nike makes.  Most of it is made in China on an assembly line of poorly paid workers, just like your big mac is (literally, they call it the assembly line process).  They don't use high quality materials, just like McDonalds doesn't use high quality ingredients (I'm not claiming they use dog meat like some people, but it's definitely not some organic free range, freshly slaughtered meat).  And both companies seem to collect in poorer areas of the country as well.


And the resellers, why is Nike not taking advantage of that?  I'll be honest, if someone has a valid argument for Nike not selling some of their shoes for much higher than they do, let me know.  If yeezys are a status item to many, then why not just increase the price to something like $500?  Maybe by keeping the prices low, they trick you into thinking you can get these status items, but hype the shit and limit it to just the right amount that they're still hard to attain.

Like I said, Marketing is on point.  Makes me wonder if Phil Knight sold his soul to the devil or something lol.

Trash!! & the price is Trash!! I gave up on foams after the Stealths released.

LMAO. You guys sayin you won't cop but you will.

Nike's got you all conditioned and trained to buy $200+ kicks at the drop of a hat now. Shitty quality Jordan retros up $10 from a couple years ago. Lebrons up to $200. LeBron Elites up $10 from only last year to $260. Now Foams from under 2 bills to last year of $220 to this year of $230. Yet, you still buy. You still get yellowed soles. You still get subpar quality. Look, my man KD couldn't even hold the sneaker retail below his preferred $100 price point. Nike straight playing people like puppets. Cut the strings, folks!

230 now?? Shiiit. I like these better than any other foams this year though. 

We can knock it off with the blue icey soles now though

Hype Game drove these Royals to spike retail price. 

All I can say is, "I LIKE IT....BUT TO HELL I SPEND A FORTUNE just for the bragging rights that I own one".

@DopeKG And your family owns hotels... you should know a little something about why the prices are up smh the way you were boasting. and older sneakerheads dont mean shit to the upperclassmen making decisions. its all about sales. #logic

@DopeKG Do you not realize that when the foamposites originally came out they were a lot of money.

iamromierome

Feel me.. shit is just trash mane $230, $220 or $200 still not worth it.. they better off releasing those "shooting stars" CW if they tryna ask for $230 ...shit is crazy!

@NuttyKicks The people Nike's got hooked are the people claiming to "collect" sneakers.  Shit's just straight up hoarding lol

Sneeky

Nah nah naaah!!! Read my lips, "I AM NOT BUYING THIS".

I will never be addicted to buying sneakers. At the most, I only appreciate them.

I have sneakers for my everyday use. These are wants not needs. My common sense tells me to spend my money wisely, especially in these difficult times.

DopeKG

@Born2fly @DopeKG yes i do know how prices go up on everything but not a pair of foams each year they raise them 10$, and by older sneakerheads i mean people who have the ability to choose better colorways. and get off my shit if your still holding a little grudge then you need to grow up. and i  personally don't own hotels and business is not what im going for in college. and what parents would explain their financial responsibility to a 17 year old? i dont sit down and have conversations about how their business works, and im pretty sure you don't do that with your parents.

Da_Real_Big_Infinite

I sense alot of jealousy from you lol if you dont know the history between me and his dispute, mind your fucking business. Thats dead now. Anyone can know about marketing, you're never too young. But um, why you mad again?

@Born2fly   Your a sucker a 16 yr old that is a straight up geek,  What do you know about $$$$?  Talking about peoples careers GTFOH Duck.  Whats your allowance duck?  Your parents stand in line with you too lame?   Your a failure before you even jumped off the porch sucker.  Talk that sh!t to me then I can back up everything I am about. Talking about marketing and inflation at 16 when you have never paid a bill? GTFOH        I bet your parents are check to check

Born2fly

I think i touched a nerve. Mission completed. Its no argument. You dont have time to "argue" but you're not doing shit to pursue your career. What are ya doing? You setting up for failure just waiting for shit to come to you.Lol im done tho.

DopeKG

@Born2fly i never talked shit go back and read who started it, as i remember you told me to shut the fuck up for no reason am i correct? and im not about what arguing and being a internet thug? and ok you talk to you parents and own books on business/money ok nice cool awesome for you. and i do learn as i get older what exactly do you want for me to spell out my understanding for money on a sneaker blog? and i talk to my parents about what im going to college about. im done with this conversation if you see me on this blog keep it moving i really don't have time to argue with you about simple shit. goodbye.

Born2fly

People buy it no matter what so they will inflate the prices. Older sneakerhead have no place in business, no executive is going to come on and ask a random to create a colorway. Their shit sells out regardless. Im not holding a grudge. Im 16 and you should know about how money works as you grow up and move on to college. You talk shit on here and you weren't even about it as i just found out. I have books on business/money and parents who i talk to about things.
