Anything having to do with Nike Sportswear's Foamposite series in 2012 can most likely be traced back to last fall's Sole Collector x Nike Zoom Rookie Launch Event, which featured guest appearances by Penny Hardaway and Sportswear Category Footwear Leader Gentry Humphrey. There, Gentry had a chest full of Foamposite and Rookie samples that he partially revealed to the guests in attendance one by one. Buried deep in that chest was a curious pink-based Foamposite One sample that certainly raised a lot of questions, but has been M.I.A. since the event...until now.
Recently surfacing online is product information for a Holiday 2012 Pink Air Foamposite One release. It's possible that the shoe will have a tie-in with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and feature some kind of ribbon embroidery. According to G-Roc's report over at The Shoe Game, we can expect to see these hit retail in November. Keep it locked to Sole Collector for updates as soon as they become available.
