Years ago, a Nike Air Foamposite One return was deemed near impossible due to the expensive production costs. Today, the heavy kicks are flying off the shelves and the colorways are near endless. Gary Warnett took the time to research the patent papers on the said shoe as well as the Footscape in a recent entry. Check out the process and parts needed to craft the popular sneakers here.

The only trend NYC started that i give credit too is dressing in the 90s lol..and people down south don't start trends, they bamas like shit.   DMV started foamposites give it up, every celeb shouts out dmv when they have on foams.flights. etc they don't shout out ny, cali, miami,  or any other place!!  we been on foams since 97, i didnt see ny people wearing flightposites or flightposite 3s, you only wore pony, jordans and uptowns.. kill the hype.

People keep saying DC... DC... DC... I got made love for DC but what about Baltimore?... We're not gonna talk about how my city kept AF1's alive when nobody thought about em in the 90's... and in this foamposite conversation, all the real sneaker heads from the area know where the foamposite craze started... nobody even knew the the real name of foamposites between 96 and 2003... people just called em "dopes".... Baltimore is where i all started.

"Years ago, a Nike Air Foamposite One return was deemed near impossible due to the expensive production costs."

 

Biggest bullshit I have heard in a long time. Expensive production costs will never hold Nike back from producing a shoe. EVER

Lol Foams been around they a few colors back then and they stop.Nike brouught them back and cities gone wild when N.Y. Was on foams states was just getting hip 2 air force 1s.

The explosion of the sneaker game, coupled with cheaper materials and raising the price from $180 to $200 to now $220 is how they're able to retro the shoe so frequently.

 @Mik3y_Taught_Me ..lmao..i'm from south carolina, i repeat SOUTH CAROLINA and i remember my bro having an OG pair of the royal foam 1's..that was way back in 97..may i add there were no shoe sites or anything similar to this one back then so there is no way the shoe was hyped, may i add that my bro was the only teen in my town that had foams period at the time..the dmv did not start a thing homie..it's offensive that you even say that..it's all about originality and taste..now-a-days it's all about trends..if anything, the dmv started a trend.

 @Mik3y_Taught_Me  Wrong ! You can thank MIKE BIBBY for wearing foams in college. I've seen them around wayyy before Wale was popular & I heard of "DMV". This is just history repeating itself & you're area taking credit for it.

@JulioPepSanchez look, its cool that you saw a lot of dudes stay up on the foams in DC.... I ain't got no beef with that, but the same was happening EVERYWHERE! baltimore, va, new York, shit, all over the east coast! Its crazy to just say DC was the only spot! Get real!

magnousson

@melvinwilliams @JulioPepSanchez LMAO @dudes still trying to claim DC put foams on the map! Listen, you'd get more respect and less flame if he said he's seen more cats in DC wear foams than they were the ones who put foams on the map like NOBODY else ever wanted to rock them! FOHWTBS!

melvinwilliams

 @magnousson  @JulioPepSanchez in the 90's I lived in virginia, florida, mississippi and the west coast never seen cats actually rocking the foams until i moved to D.C. in late 1998. I am 35 years old and have rocked every sneaker u can imagine! U have to give D.C the foams the shit is what it is. 

magnousson
magnousson

@JulioPepSanchez dude, no one hood or city, or district can claim they put the foams on the map. You act like they was slept on till now. The hype was always crazy with those kicks all over the country! Get real!

@icybottoms @JulioPepSanchez look I wouldnt have believe it either until I moved down here in 99. I hated a lot of shit bout the dmv when I got here. But real rap the foam craze started here. Yes up north u had to have the bread to get them. But down here everybody rocking reguardless of the price.. u came down here late 90s to now dc was rockin all foams flights and jays.

icybottoms

 @JulioPepSanchez dmv? im from ny always seen the old heads with the pro's from the early 2000 releases. It's silly for one area to claim an entire craze to them selves -_-. You either had the money or you didnt and 180 was a steep price for regular kids. Whats happened is that Nike capitalized on a new generation. Honestly never even knew D.C rocked kicks beofore wale put D.C on the map and Sneaker sites hyping up his kick selections.

 @magnousson  @Mik3y_Taught_Me No one not sayin mike bibby didnt wear them.. we saying no regular person. meaning state,hood, city.etc.. When other people was rockin only jays and af1s  dc put foams on the map.. then everyone else started rockin them.

@Mik3y_Taught_Me there was no before bibby' he was the first one to wear them even before the NBA basketball season and penny had a chance to rock them.

 @MuhammadLewis if you think wale was the face of foams then clearly you don't know, ask anyone where they started!! DMV, before bibby way before wale, no one else knew what foamposites were or have seen them before, only credit i'd give too is new york, because they got hipped, but other than that sir, Thank us later.
