When will the “Oregon” Foamposites make their way into the hands of the University of Oregon student athletes that they were made for? We’re used to seeing those player exclusives doled out during the football season, and with that almost over save for one bowl game there isn’t much time left for the seeding to go down in that window. The pair sports a winged pattern on its upper along with embroidered logos on the back end of two duck feet and their O logo. Continue reading for the latest set of images on this pair and let us know if you’re anticipating a wider swath of collegiate Foams in the future.
The rich hypebeasts who LOOOOOVE galaxy foams, paranormans and db's will love these, even though those same beasts hate the weathermans and tampoons (we figured you all out awhile ago, limited = amazing and GR = horrific).
@Brads Pitt you're right, because i don't like the weatherman's and the thermal foams, that means I'm broke and have no money. I actually like the galaxies and paranormans...but these days you can slap on any kind of stupid/whack graphic on a shoe, make it a limited release with only 200 pairs, and it will sell out instantly.
@Brads Pitt you couldn't be more wrong. After you actually see a pair of Galaxy's in person you'll know what I'm talking about - complete trash.
I feel ya man as for me the shoe being limited means nothing. If I like it I weigh out the price verses the want and usually go from there. But this hoarding all the good duck stuff is bullshit. I live in Memphis where the Nike distribution factory is and they never do a shoe for us and this is the hub for Nike movement in the USA. It doesn't move unless it comes from here.
@Brads Pitt I got ya man, I don't mean to sound like the people I can't stand. People can like whatever they want, that's the beauty of it all. I just wish it felt more genuine and real from the folks who can easily have it all.
As for me I passed on the Grapes , the paranormans , the Shanghai , the weathermans, the tampons and all the DBS except for the 4s for me and the lady dunk for my girl. The reason I passed is because they suck "All of them".. But when those galaxy's dropped I had to have them.. I love that shoe and I'm from Memphis "Hardaways Hometown". Memphis State University days fan here.
@Brads Pitt Ultimately - I just find it VERRRRRRRY hard to believe that someone LOVES the Galaxies and LOVES the Paranormans and LOVES these and LOVES dbs, but that very same person wouldn't be caught dead in the Weathermans or Tampons. That is a rich (or poor) hypebeast or loser or whatever, but it's quite common. Same shit happened with the Oreo 5's. Somehow those are trash, but the very limited Grape 5's and extremely limited Shanghai 5's are both amazing and a must. Best part of it all is in 5-10 years (that's if these people make it that long) when all the pairs are gone trashed, they'll be wearing Oreo 5's, Weatherman's and Tampon's as if they've been doing so since day 1.
You guys try to paint a picture the way you want to see it , but the truth is if you could afford a pair of galaxy foams you wouldn't call them the rich mans choice. I'm not rich but I did drop a grand on my Galaxy's and I'm more than happy with them.
@Brads Pitt Once again you are completely wrong. You're on a roll today.
