In the sneakerhead calendar, 2010 will go down as one of the biggest years – in terms of releases. Jordans galore, uber-limited collaborations, two great signature shoes, and a smorgasbord of Foamposite releases should leave your belt a few notches wider and your wallet inversely thinner. Unfortunately, there isn’t much time to let up, because in addition to the Jordan Brand Spring 2011 releases, Foamposites will also experience a colossal release during the same season, causing some to spend a mortgage payment’s worth on shoes.
Earlier this month Sneaker News confirmed the release of the Metallic Pewter Nike Air Foamposite One; releasing alongside is the Dark Neon Royal colorway (pushed back from the original September 2010 scheduled drop) of the Nike Air Foamposite One – the colorway that had Penny Hardaway go gaga and revolutionized the way basketball shoes were designed. The One’s fraternal twin – the Pro – will also see a release in Electric Green/Black-White; could that mean a Kryptonate-like upper? Could Premium Pete’s Foamposite vision be realized, or is expecting a throwback to the Voltage Foamposite Pro be a better guess? Spring 2011’s going to be nothing short of a massive release so let us know which of these Foams you’ve got your eye on. Stocking up on another pair of Royals? Chime in.
