    Nike Air Max Hyperposite: http://counterkicks.com/2011/12/09/the-200-nike-air-max-hyperposite-launching-in-2012/

    [​IMG]


    If you want to throw out an extreme price point at retail on a new silhouette and not create too much of a commotion over it, sneaker consumers have been conditioned to fork over at least two big Benjamin bills for Foamposite based shoes ever since the original Nike Air Foamposite One.


    In 2012, we can confirm a new Foam basketball product enters the fray: the Nike Air Max Hyperposite.


    The shoe is slated to release in a variety of colorways for Fall 2012 including:


    - Bright Crimson/Reflect Silver

    - Dynamic Blue/Reflect Silver

    - Charcoal/Black-Atomic Green

    - Black/Reflect Silver

    - Black/Black-Bright Crimson


    While there’s no live photos of the shoe to be displayed just yet, we can surmise from the name that this Foamposite model will feature Max Air technology, perhaps in visible window format, and Hyperfuse composite construction which will hopefully help balance out the gratuitous weight of a Foamposite upper shell along with providing some appropriate venting to keep your feet cool during extended runs.


    Price of entry on the Air Max Hyperposite, like other Foamposites before it and a growing portion of Nike Basketball’s loaded 2012 lineup (See: LeBron 9 P.S. Elite, Kobe VII Elite, Zoom Hyperdunk Elite) sits at $200. More info to come as it develops…

    Can't wait to see...

    But the word "hyper" in it, I am not expecting beauties.

    Possibly a fail like the foam lites..

    Thanks for the info Steez.

    I'm intrigued, but also weary at the "hyper" moniker being thrown on it.
    I can honestly say that with Nike's new price points, I'm pretty much done.

    I hope they have learned from the foam lites and skyposites, they both werent bad but not worth the pricepoint.

    Ive seen samples, well atleast the early prototype, they look very meshy, but durable. Its a weird blend between the foam and the hyper material.

    Ive seen samples as well. They have the shape of the the Lebron8 PS with 360 air max and they have 2 versions; One with full foam all around and one with mesh-like material at the top where the laces are and to the middle of the toe area. The colors i saw were
    Black/Black-Bright Crimson
    a teal blue/pink/black colorway
    greyish silver/black/orange colorway.
    The shoe was ok and looks nice but when they ask me about them i gave my honest opinion about them and felt the price for and non-sig shoe not associated with a great/well know player would not sell at that $200 pricepoint.

    Eh, maybe this is the model for the Waleposite? Just throwing it out there. And at least the colorways sound promising
