“Shooting Stars” Nike Air Foamposite One

shooting star foamposites Shooting Stars Nike Air Foamposite One

Tomorrow, the most well-received Foamposites in recent memory will hit stores. We’re obviously referring to the Black/Laser Crimson Pro model that have been dubbed the “Yeezy”, and like it or not, Nike delivered with that release. But that may be undone by another future Foam release – the “Shooting Stars” that was originally a PE for Penny Hardaway. This one’s got an all-white upper with Magical mixes surrounding the shoe, but we wouldn’t be surprised one big if some took the extra steps to create a “Pearl” Foamposite One (notes: the Pearls were originally white, not champagne gold like in the last Retro). In any case, we’re sure you’re dying for a release date, so we’ll have that to you once we get the confirmed info.

yeezy 2 foamposite A Quick Comparison of Solar Red: Air Yeezy 2 vs. Foamposite

It’s no mystery that tomorrow’s release of the Air Foamposite Pro in Black/Laser Crimson is inspired in large part by the Air Yeezy 2 “Solar Red”, While the hues of bright red and light green may differ and the choice of materials clearly not related, these two shoes could not be any more similar. It’s off the strength of this iconic 21st Century colorway that tomorrow’s Foamposite drop is perhaps the weekend (or even the month), and seeing these side-by-side with the Yeezy 2s should only make you question your indecision. Are the Yeezy Foams the highlight sneaker release tomorrow? Give us your thoughts.

Have you ever seen a pair of suede Foamposites? This colorway, which comes closest to the likes of the Stealth Foams and similar blackout treatments, places a fuzzy treatment on top of the typical upper with what appears to be a sort of synthetic suede material. The term suede here is an approximation – we’re not talking about a nappy, fuzzy pair of Foams by any means. Continue reading for the evidence and stay tuned to Sneaker News for the word on whether or not these sort of Foams will be headed to retail in the future.

If the Air Flightposite can follow the new Exposed edition with some shrouded originals from the turn of the century, there’s no reason not to invite the sandal form of the shoe along as well.  The Nike Clogposite is about to drop its first pair of 2014 and they’re perfectly timed for the start of warm weather.  This black and Metallic Silver style hitting Japan on Saturday is an OG for both the Clogposite and Flightposite, as is the reversed distribution coming up later (Keep in mind that they’re being officially billed as the Solo Slide for retro purposes).  Let us know which you prefer once you’ve seen this pair in more detail below and stick with Sneaker News for US release info.

Despite what one might infer from a superficial reading of sneaker sales numbers, Kanye West is indeed an influencer of the highest order. It’s pretty obvious that his extremely limited Air Yeezy line has been inspiring inline drops since it began back in 2009, and in this latest Nike Air Foamposite Pro, we have another clear example. These Yeezy Foams co-opts the ‘Blink’ look with black and Laser Crimson atop a glow in the dark outsole, and there’s a bit of the Yeezy 2′s snake along the eyestay in addition to the added texture of carbon fiber across the upper. Have a look at some crisp new shots below and be ready when these arrive on Saturday.
