We’re currently in the middle of the official release of the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Camo”, but only today are we getting a first look at this awesome special edition packaging made just for this historic release. Housing the Camo Foams is this military-themed suitcase with a dark green exterior and foam padding on the inner lining – something like one of those highly-classified items carried by military VIPs. It’s not quite clear where these were released or how limited the units will be, but we’ll give you a heads up if these become available sometime in the future!

The box doesn't add a whole lot. But I agree. For the price hike they've been doing on the foams all foams should come with a special box like this. People are getting ROBBED in the game today.
It's amazing how Foam Pros went from $190 to $240 in just a few short years! What's so special about these to justify that price???
@MC_Count_Chill Facts but fucking why did this not release with the Foams? Nike be on some real backwards shit on purpose
@BiscoeTheBoss well, for one thing - inflation (it's a part of life, deal with it. everything goes up in price over time). for another thing, the foams are the pound-for-pound most comfortable shoe out there. Full length zoom air with double zoom pods in the heel, are you kidding me? No other shoe in the game offers up this much cushioning. Try a pair on, you'd be mesmerized. Even the LBJ Xs, which have that vis air zoom unit, dont stack up the foams level of cushioning.
@BiscoeTheBoss the keychain obviously is worth the price hike .......smh damn nike
@AKPifstars it's all about profits. I don't think they make a lot by including pricier packaging.
I've been wearing foams for many years now, so I know how comfortable they are! I also know that things GRADUALLY go up in price! A $50 price jump over a span of roughly 3 years for a pair of shoes that is cheaper to make now than it originally was when they first released is far from gradual! It's just Nike knowing that some of their consumers will buy their products at any ridiculous price and they're taking full advantage of it! So although I appreciate the lesson u tried to teach me about foamposites, it still doesn't justify Nike ripping off their customers!
