Even though they make my feet look huge, I’m a big fan of foamposites. The Air Foamposite One Metallic Red have just dropped for the second time, retroing after just 5 years! I actually had these the first time they came out! If you’re trying to cop, use the links below. My thoughts on these are further down the page.

Check out my thoughts on this release
I’ve routinely gone on large sneaker purges where I sell off a bunch of kicks I’m not wearing. In the case of this colorway, unlike the Cough Drops (probably my most worn foams), I had actually never UN-DS’d these. I wound up selling them before I could even get a chance to rock. I just didn’t see them as being necessary in my collection.
That said, these are a hot colorway! Basically they remind me of the red version of the classic Royal foamposite colorway. I really like how they look and I’m honestly considering copping again! It’s funny because I liked them when they were about to drop the first time. Then I copped them and never wore them. Then I was totally “meh” on these and sold them. Now I’m seeing pics online and I’m like “Damn, why’d I sell?!?!?”.
So… will I cop? I’m not sure but I am so tempted to pull the trigger on these. I might just bookmark one of the links above and hopefully they go down in price and people sleep. Luckily the hype for foams isn’t really there right now so I might be able to cop at a slight discount. I think this is the optimal scenario. So I’m thinking I will cop but at a later date. Stay tuned as I will be sure to review these if I do.
