Question: Which of the new Foamposite One/Pro releases since 2009’s Eggplant should have been an ‘OG’? When Nike Sportswear retros a shoe, some sneakerheads approach new colorways with the mindset of “Would I have worn this if it released back then?”. One of the most popular non-OG Foams is undoubtedly the Copper, but it’s safe to say that it would’ve been a bit too ‘loud’ for the mid-90’s. Other colorways, like the upcoming Varsity Red might’ve been, considering a Pro version did in fact release. Additionally, these would’ve made fantastic Player Exclusives for Scottie Pippen, who was poised to be a Foamposite representative. We’ve got a new set of images for you below (don’t forget the nice ‘on-feet’ images from earlier) so stay tuned for a release at select NSW accounts like MrRSports, or grab one right now on eBay.
