The pattern-ification of the Nike Air Foamposite One continues with the appearance of this new teaser image screen-capped from a video depicting a heavily dotted forthcoming style. The mix of various sizes of polka dots on this pair will naturally be compared to Nike’s iconic Safari Print, but the dots are more perfectly circular than that ostrich leather-inspired pattern. You might also see a vague stingray connection, so how the rest of the shoe is blocked (eyestay, lining, etc), will be particularly important to determining how these end up looking. Stick with Sneaker News for more details including a release date and let us know how these compare to the more traditional unibody Foams.
Why cant they think of cool designs like a volcano pint? or a two tone gradient? theres a lot to work with.
I don't know what's worse; the idea for this shoe or the fact they didn't come close to doing it correctly
dam why they gotta be poka dots they should be all cement with black suade and a icy bottom or maybe make some moon light foamposites with a ruff material that looks like the surface of the moon i seen these spraypaints in home depot that do it they leave like a rock like surface its so cool
sneakernews you guys are crap...the pics have already been out stop posting leaked photo's jus show the whole thing
smh i stopped caring after them weather shits until they drop the dr dooms, carolinas, or red pros foams are just blah to me
I knew the Galaxys were the beginning of the end. Once I saw that Allstar weekend WHACK sh%T, I knew Foams were headed in the wrong direction (with no return in sight). Gentry does this everrywhere he goes. Fusions at JB and now graphic foams and no Zippers on the Flightposites. Ish is getting old now!
The only foams I own are the dark neon royal ogs and the 2007 retros of the same colorway.These "themed" colorways are so stupid.
Nike should just stop with the foams. They have already killed the line. Unfortunately hypebeasts and idiots will still pay the ridiculous prices and shoot people to get them.
Yeah I agree the photoshop graphic wallpaper themes they've been putting on foams have killed the line. Its clear Nike is no longer marketing the foams to people who waited in line for them when they first dropped at Footlockers back in 97 (who like me, clearly just want OG colorways) . Foams have purley become a canvas for eccentric hypebeasts IMO.
