The Foamposite copper is officially coming back on April 17, and you can bet that they will be mass produced. I remember picking up a pair in 2009 and the whole event was a fiasco- by the time 8 am hit on the cold morning, there was a parade outside the mall and as soon as the mall doors were accessible, people ran in the store like a herd of sheep without a shepherd, you can imagine the scene.
But the shoes were worth it, it was the first time the colorway was dropping and they had a light purple icey bottom without the purple tint. I saw official pictures of the 2017 foamposite copper, and I was very disappointed with the dark purple bottom they sit on( it doesn’t match well with the uppers). Call me weird but I actually like it better when the sole turns light yellow ( the oxidation causes it to change colors and it seems to match up well with the foam shells).Sometimes a product is better left alone in its original state. What do you guys think? check the pictures below and leave your comments
