So the Nike Foamposite took a strange turn when we first laid eyes on the funky “Weatherman” sample, with many of our readers being rather vocal regarding the overtly ornate colorways mocked up by the Nike team. This first look at yet another graphic print on a Foamposite should coerce a similar response for sure, as the Foamposite appears to explore outer space once again with an incredible gradient on the upper and outsole and what appears to be imagery of an asteroid belt. A few more shots are just below, so take a look and let us know what you think of either the gradient treatment or this revisiting of outer space on the Foamposite, and stay tuned to Sneaker News for all Nike Foamposite updates.

Then to come back to the civilan world and be expected to “adjust” to “regular life” after seeing extreme violence is really easier said than done. As they say, you’re never the same person you were before you went in.
If you can’t afford the 1985 OG that Shoezeum is offering (already over $2500 with five days left!), then be sure you’re ready for the ‘new original’.
