Is it just me or are people getting way more excited about new Foamposite releases than they are for Jordan retros?  I'm seeing Jordan retros sitting on shelves forever, but Foams flying like crazy, and threads on Foams are lasting much longer than those about Jordans.

Talk amongst yourselves!

its hype, then in a 1 - 2 years time youll be able to get them for cheap....

its like when dudes jumped on jordans, vans, SBs, Infared 90s,..... now foams.... and soon jordan should start up again.....

and please dont compare foams to jordans

The spike goes to the O.G. shoe (No Swoosh) That got everyone hype. Not to mention the colorways. Royal, Olive green, Copper. Nike, we need a ALL BLACK with a icy sole.

IMO, the Icy sole does it for me.. Even after wear and it yellows, just knowing they were Icy makes me smile when I look at my beat up OG Royals..

The Black/Red, Black/Neon Green were a pass for me. wasn't exciting enough. Now the Coppers shows creativity.

Jays are Jays.. They're not going anywhere, but I hate to say it, if you was on Foams from jump, consider yourself Elite.

I can recall being in Queens in the park dudes "trying" to clown calling them space boots. I used to be like: "Y'all wish Jordan had a pair of these.. If it had his logo on them, there would be lines outside of footlockers!"

There were 2 OFFICIAL neck breakers in my book... OG Foamposites and the first Griffeys.

I wear both, but poor quality, bad colorways, copying fakes and not sticking to the OG blueprints are hurting JB a little.

I remember seeing these for the first time back in 97 a week before release day in a Foot Locker in Jersey City.  They were displayed on a mirrored platform under glass.  From that moment on I was in love with Foams.  I didn't have the $180 to shell out for them back in the day, but I picked up my first Pros when the white ones dropped in '02 (three pairs @ $70 a pop no less!).  Picked up the black/black and varsity red Pros when they hit.  Finally got royal Penny Foams when they restroed in '07...I felt like a kid all over again, and now I'm loving my coppers.

i been on foams since 97 so its nice to know all the haters back then were wrong. i think the Foam One was way ahead of its time. Kinda like a movie that becomes a colt classic after being made 10 years prior.

With ridiculous threads like this perpetuating the hype, who knows... if it means more colorways, then I guess I can't really complain.
