Nike Air Foamposite One “Concord”

April 7th, 2014 by | 248 comments

nike foamposite concord Nike Air Foamposite One Concord

The Nike Air Foamposite One “Concord” is coming. It’s important to note that this pair actually mixes game royal into the black and white base, instead of dark concord like the Air Jordan 11 referenced. Other than that though they do a pretty good job of mimicking the Concord theme – the Foamposite pieces even have a shiny look to them that pushes them closer to the patent leather of the Eleven. See the full set of images on the “Concord” Foams after the break and keep your fingers crossed that a release date shows up soon.

It looks like the worlds of Michael and Penny just might collide with a Nike Air Foamposite One “Concord” release. The pair pictured has a black and white look that’s pretty similar to the beloved Air Jordan 11 “Concord”, although they’re of course missing the patent leather on the materials side. For what it’s worth a Black/Varsity Royal-White Foamposite One release with a style code of 575420-005 is arriving in Summer, and these could be the one in question. See some more evidence after the break and check back in on Sneaker News to find out more on this curious pair of Foamposites.

best foamposites What Are Your Top 5 Foamposites of All Time?

Are these five Foamposites the greatest of all time? That could be debatable, but this line-up of Galaxy, Paranorman, Doernbecher, and Supreme in both black and red puts up quite the argument. We feel that the original Royal deserves a spot among the greatest, while other classics like the “Pearl”, “Copper”, and “Blackout” make a case to be considered among the best ever. There’s a clear line drawn between Foamposites in history; one side holds the classic, tonal-uppered compositions, while the opposing side is much louder with graphic prints and concepts. Let us know what your top 5 Foamposites of all-time are in the comments below.

crazy sneaker releases Is It Worth It? A Look Back at Crazy Sneaker Releases and Campouts

In preparation of today’s in-store release of the Supreme Foamposites, hordes of sneakerheads and brand loyalists gathered at the store locations in New York and Los Angeles with hopes of acquiring a pair in person. The mayhem at the NYC location forced the NYPD the cancel the in-store release in New York due to safety concerns, and the thousands that showed up were forced to go home and wait for the online release. The events that unfolded are a reminder that Nike’s efforts to keep these types of releases strictly digital have produced positive results, especially with the higher frequency of high profile items. However not everything can be done through an RSVP or Twitter Link Only system, and there was a time when chaos on release dates was to be expected.

Supreme New York has cancelled the in-store release of the Supreme Foamposites due to a massive campout that threatened the safety of pedestrians as well as those vying for the shoes. Lines were beginning to form once the official release date was made public on Monday, and by 7 PM tonight, the already busy intersection of Prince St. at Lafayette was infiltrated with thousands of sneakerheads and Supreme fanatics – all in hopes of copping the shoes that officially go on sale tomorrow.

The official notice of cancellation came when Supreme posted a message on their Instagram account as well as on their storefront window (see below), but this change of plans only affects the in-store release at the New York location. The shoes will still go on sale tomorrow on the Supreme online store, so hope is not lost. We thought we were done with chaotic campouts, right? Well, given the right shoe and the right amount of hype, anything can happen. Check out the photos below and give us your opinions on this turn of events.
