If you were to choose exactly one day to spend nearly a thousand dollars on kicks, today would be it. Earlier today Sneaker News gave you the heads up on an available pre-order for the Air Jordan XIII ‘Altitude’ – a December release – as well as the ‘Bred‘ colorway. Here’s another upcoming shoe that’s worth the extra dollars for a pre-order – the Nike Air Foamposite One in Dark Neon Royal. Before Copper, Eggplant, and Cough Drop was Royal Blue – Penny Hardaway’s unofficial signature shoe and one of the greatest Nike creations of all time.
Sneaker News provided some information regarding a 2010 release of this shoe but they were put in the backburner in favor of the other Foamposite releases of this year, but with this pre-order available (with a late October ship-date), it looks like the Royal Foams will return soon – and you can expect them in early 2011. The Holiday 2010/Spring 2011 season might cause you to take a hammer to your piggy bank but for a release like the Royal Foam Ones, it might be worth it.VMVinc has a pre-order of the upcoming retro available at a reasonable price so head there to call dibs on your own, and let us know if news of this upcoming release changes your plans for the coming months.
Color: Dark Neon Royal/White-Black
