It’s true – the Air Foamposite One has taken a sharp turn somewhere and now finds itself in a uncharted territory with these crazy graphics on the upper. Last year’s Galaxy and ParaNorman fix wasn’t enough because Nike Sportswear has four confirmed non-tonal Foamposites ready for this year – the Weatherman, Thermal Map, Safari, and Asteroid. Seen side by side is the latter half, with the Asteroid Foamposites sporting a multi-colored outsole and the Safari joints going all ’87 on us. Which of the two do you like better? Let’s get the discussion rolling in the comments below.
Foams have been dead for years. They have gone the way of Jordan I's with all these random and crazy colorways. As long as Nike slaps a "limited" label on some of these horrific colorways and/or people see celebs wearing these, you young cats (25 and under crowd) will continue buying this garbage.
@LxrdLeon yup... the we'll be in line to run ur girl after we're done coppin
i honestly didnt think the asteroids were gonna come out this good wen i 1st heard about them.... but they are amazing now that i see good pics
I know what would match perfect with these,....a shirt that says "I'm a SUCKA! Thanks Nike"
----but of course that's MY opinion----
The safari joints are beautiful. Might not rock the asteroids as the little white spots might annoy me lol. And the galaxies and paranormans were not enough this year? Seriously my galaxy foams i just bought from coolshoeshines.com are killing the game man. Getting all sorts of crazy compliments
They look like old Kmart shoes. The ones that used to be in the kids section. Just add velcro. Just bring back the OG Orlando Magic joints.
Straight heat! Asteroids top my list as well as weathermans...Safari joints are alright too and would love to grab a pair for my collection. Foams are super comfortable, put up with shitty weather, and don't crease so they are worth the money to me because they last.
i think Nike wants the consumer to feel like they have a pair of customized shoes, custom sneakers are very hot right now, but Nike decisions on what they put out are not very good ones, the Volcanoes look interesting cause of the multi colored sole , bit i feel the others are trash, retro the old foams, blue, Dooms etc.., that would be dope
I been told yah Nike was gonna pull some b.s like this monthssss.. ago ive seen in coming from those strange ass CW releases ive retire from collecting foams right after the stealth's & the price increase, these shit is just trash its no style or classic feel to it no more.. like how could you rock these an be comfortable as a straight male ? Poke a dots ? & some herps looking shit? Smfh this has to be for the new cats or the beginning of a new age, its time the real og sneakerheads the love for sneakers to invest our money in something else.
I can deal without the safari's, i have the crimsons. The asteroids are something you pull out very rarely, nothing to match.The yellow ruins the raptor theme. Foams increasing so im not fucking with either of these, I dont even like spending over $200 on kicks. Im glad I stuck to what i said a whole year ago "the crimsons will be my last foamposite" As long as some/most of you keep camping for shit, the more they gonna fuck yall over. Im over it.
