During last night's Sole Collector x Nike Las Vegas Zoom Rookie LWP launch event, newly appointed NSW Category Footwear Leader Gentry Humphrey was on hand to give us a look at several huge releases scheduled for 2012. Continuing to capatilize on the growing community of Air Foamposite fans, Nike Sportswear is set to release the Foamposite One and Foamposite Pro in a variety of unique colorways.
Immediately catching the attention of sneaker collectors at the RSVP-only event, Gentry showed up in a rainbow-colored Air Foamposite One known as the 'Galaxy All-Star" edition. With a constellation graphic on the lateral midfoot and a fading multi-color upper, While everyone was busy gathering their thoughts on those, Gentry immediately dropped another bomb with not only our first look at the "Metallic Red" Foamposite One, but also confirmation of a Valentine's Day 2012 release date.
Other samples revealed by Gentry included a yellow-based colorway of the Foamposite One inspired by Hardaway's original NBA team for a minute or two, the Golden State Warriors. We also got a glimpse of an all white Zoom Rookie LWP, as well as a Dynamic Blue / Wolf Grey version of the newest Penny Hardaway model.

A slight shade away from the "Electric Green" Foamposite Pro that released earlier in the year, here's another potential green based Foamposite sample.
