Will suede Foamposites ever become a reality? It sure seems that way, as another sample pair has hit that again sports that material switch up. Shown here are the sneakers, which feature a fuzzy red suede upper and a little bit of reflective flash around the lace placket. Again a release is nowhere near confirmed, but it’s certainly not beyond the realm of possibility given the liberties NSW have recently taken with Foamposites. See the red suede Foams again after the break and give us your two cents in the comments.

didnt samples used to come with individual boxes these look eerily similar to those boxes and boxes of fake foams in plastic bags
Why aren't we calling this suedeposite?
This seems like a bad idea. The best thing about foams is they are easy to clean and don't crease. They last forever. Suede on the other hand is hard to keep clean. This might be good in a black out colorway.
I have a sample pair from nike because of a family member in nike.. the suede does not get water marks or anything of the such..
@Cpack I don't know about AF1's those will forever be classics. But the Foams is getting out of hand these recent releases smh.
The top layer on foamposite isn't foam. It's a shell with what looks like a variation of foam undernath it. If you or a friend has lebron 11s, look up underneath one of the posite vents, and you can see the foam. We don't call normal foamposites something like plasticposite, or anything like that (not sure exactly what the material of the shell is made of, but they're still call foamposites for the foam underneath). So why call these suedeposite? There's almost certainly going to still be foam underneath.
I wear them every day when I go somewhere clean.. lmao wouldn't want to ruin em.. they are really nice and when they come out I will be buying like 2 more pairs.. they're going to be a hit... guaranteed!
No the af1 is definitely dead the all white pair is making a semi comeback but its nothing like it used to b they're still on shelves no sellouts like back in their hayday
@Socks for Youagreed. have you seen the nubuck black J IIIs sample? same deal.
People still buy some af1. They aren't selling like they used to because when they came out the af1 were some of the best shoes they put out, now compared to more modern shoes they obviously can't compete. That's what's slowly happening to the foamposites, sense posite material is being better used on other shoe models, and flyknit is making it's way into more nike shoes.
True people have always bought them n I don't see many modern shoes competing with the af1 still they're not even in the same price range as Jordan retros lebrons n kds i think it just shows how shoes will trend the af1 had its time so did dunks i remember wen u couldn't go anywhere w/o seeing a pair of fakes but that changed too now Jordan's are selling faster then ever I'm sure it won't stay like this tho
