Supreme Nike Air Foamposite One review by Chris P. (@crpurz)
Style Code: 652792-001
Release Date: 4/3/13
Price: $250 each
Only releasing at Supreme NYC, LA, London, Japan, and Online.
Quality: Foamposites are indestructable. The print on the upper is definitely Versace inspired. It puts the galaxy print to shame. The color on the print pops and the details on the print are very nice. The clear sole with the white “carbon fiber” is especially smooth.
Fit: The shoe fits nice and snug if you stay true to your normal size. As you wear the shoe, over time the foamposite will warm up and form to your foot. I personally go up a half size in most my foamposites. I think if you plan on balling in them stay true and they will fit better. If you planning on rocking casually go up a half.
Favorite feature: I have many here, but what takes the cake is the white carbon fiber plate. A close second is the graphic print. It is flashy, classy and covers the sneaker well. The other details like the Supreme logo on the tongue, the clear sole, the “Supreme x Nike” on the insole, and the Supreme written on the golden swirl print are pretty fresh too. The whole sneaker is fly!
Final Thoughts: The shoe is amazing… period. Take the hype away, the fact it’s a crazy collab on a crazy shoe, and what are you left with? A dope, well built, well designed classic Nike foamposite. On a side note, I really am happy where the foams are going. I thought we might have lost this shoe to horrible designs, but this along with Yeezy and Shooting Star colorways have re-sparked my love for the shoe!
