The ‘Cough Drop’ Foamposite One was given that nickname due to its translucent red outsole, giving the appearance of an oversized Luden’s throat soother. Although eating the shoe as a cough remedy isn’t recommended, the Foamposite does in fact manage to do two things; give you a Prozac-like happiness and lighten the load of your wallet. Niketown in NYC already gave out wristbands, anticipating the hoopla behind the shoe, and the House of Hoops was also confirmed as a source for the Foams. Now 21 Mercer – the Nike Sportswear store in SoHo – will also drop these Foams, so New Yorkers can now add a third option to the list. The Nike Air Foamposite One Cough Drop will release tomorrow at the three aforementioned locations, but you can always grab a pair now on eBay.
