This isn’t your average, everyday pair of “Royal” Nike Air Foamposite Ones. Yes they’re an original, but on top of that they’re a salesman sample that features the rare inclusion of a royal blue checkered carbon fiber section on the bottom. That detail is definitely a pretty miniscule one, but we’re sure some serious Foamposite fanatics are still feeling tempted by this unicorn of a pair (The pair of course also has the hidden detail of that sample tag). Flip through the images below to further take in this Foamposite sample and then bid on them yourself from lilshk54321 on eBay.

In 2010, the Sneaker News staff brought the sneaker category to March Madness, starting with an all-out slugfest between Air Jordans, Nike Basketball, Air Force 1s, and SB Dunks – with the Air Jordan XI coming out on top as the best sneaker of all-time. Since then, we’ve continued the Madness with two straight Air Jordan categories, so a felt a change was due. Choosing Foamposites for this year’s tournament seemed like the perfect call, andwith Foams evolving from a regional hit to a nationwide phenomenon, it was time for our loyal readers and Foamposite fanatics to crown the best ever. Thirty-two Foam candidates have been narrowed down to two, and we can say with confidence that no other releases since the original year in 1997 deserve to be in the Championship Round than the two featured here. The voting starts now, so take a look below to see why the Royals and Galaxy each deserve to win this coveted title and be sure to place your vote as we near the conclusion of this successful Sneaker News March Madness Foamposite Tournament.
