Unless you are standing on line outside of House of Hoops in Harlem right now, you will probably not be getting a pair of Kryptonate Foamposite Lite’s tomorrow. Take some consolation in the fact that after a look at these pics, you will know before many of tomorrow’s would be purchasers that the retail version has a slight variation from the pair that Nate made infamous in Phoenix. The “K” in the Superman-inspired crest on the side of the upper has been replaced by “NR”, presumably for copyright reasons.
Changes or not, Krypto-mania is already in full swing up in Harlem and the event will definitely be getting even crazier when the man behind the phenomenon, Nate Robinson, will be stopping by to check out the scene and mingle with devoted line-goers. There is also a very special St. Patty’s Day surprise in store for the dedicated mobs that are going all out to get these hot commodities as we speak. If you are in the neighborhood, you might want to check out the show, but don’t expect to get lucky and scoop up a pair. These will be gone as fast as House of Hoops can ring them up.
