Wale x Nike Copper Foamposite

Nike Copper Foamposite

Wale does it again! You can always count on Mr. Folarin to break out a fresh pair of Nike samples. Being from Foamposite land, it was only right for Wale to rock the Copper Foamposites a few months early. He did the same thing with the Eggplant Foamposites, remember The Artistic Integrity video? Anyhow, here we a first look thanks to Wale and EliteDC. Wale was spotted rocking the Foamposites at Jay-Z Blueprint 3 tour in Baltimore last night. You know he had to shine in his area, and these Copper Foams are definitely shining.

Last we heard, the Copper Foams are dropping February 2010.

  • BLACK/GREEN/RED-SPIZ’IKE

    DANG, THEM REAL CLEAN

  • JordanAmbassador4Life

    These to me look like they have the potential to be better than the eggplants. Don’t get me wrong, I have the eggplants and they’re fire but these might take the pole position in my foamz category. To anybody who has any doubts about foamz, drop them asap. They’re damn comfortable and worth ever “penny” for the quality that they’re made with.

  • Converse King (Retired)

    I think Wale sucks. I don’t like his music, and I definitely don’t like that he sided with Kanye West, when he interrupted Taylor Swift’s speech. Bad form. The dude should also think about buying some pants that are actually his size from the looks of these pictures. But the shoes are cool looking, and I can’t wait to see some detailed pictures of ’em.

  • juliano shoeprano

    God those thangs are looking beautiful

  • Deznutz

    Wale sucks and so does this colorway of a classic sneaker. Btw NYC is foamposite land !!!not DC

  • CenValCali

    Copper tone is superb, mayne. Consider em copped incudin Wale’s album….

  • BrooklynSole

    These are Def beatin the Eggplants in my opinion. That copper glow and that clear Sole is doing it for me! i’ll be on line Extra early. 2 pairs.

  • Blue Cheese

    i agree with CenValCali, but not on his album! You can recline on that idea!!!

    ^Blue Cheese….I usually don’t cop new shit as far as rap goes, but Wale spit witta slick tongue so therefore it keeps me in suspense.

  • aka11.5

    most wanted list…copper all day silver next king of the foams dc.. wale 3 steps all day lets kept moving…go go 4 life…

  • JRa

    those foams are hot..much better than those pics last time.

  • DC DunKing

    ^^^ NYC is Foamposite Land?

    This is why DC ni66as HATE NY cats. We shot Cam’ron for a reason! NY ni66as are not welcome unless they humble themselves and stop acting like they create everything!
    Dc’s swagg is on New Balance, Nike Boots and Foams. We rock J’s like everybody and we hate AF1s. We been rockin Northface same as Philly and used to be hard on Columbia. We make our own brands and dont rock Hip-Hop labels. Although i hate the skinny jeans, thats been a staple for youngins for a while now.
    NYC cats that hate DC, just stay up north. But understand its always a problem when you make the hatred known!

  • Deznutz

    Homie dude out here don’t wear nf lol like before. Foams and em ugly Nike boots is a big deal out here oh and as for af1 it’s aight there’s a reason why they called uptowns 😉

  • marcg*sparklecity*sc

    Them thangs tuff

  • DC DunKing

    Thats the point!
    I understand NY got staples in the way they dress – but stop acting like yall get to say what hot and whats not!
    DC just about hates everyother city except maybe Philly and Chi.
    No disrespect, the truth is what it is

  • haux

    lol bums wear north face, big boys wear marmot and moncler. DC is not foamposite land or goadome(nike boots, ACGs) land.

  • haux

    wale found out about goadomes in NY, research the info on the inspiration for wales “nike boots”

  • Deznutz

    Moclair and marmount are uptown shit that’s tacky IMO white people wear that as they bum day jacket lol
    anyway homie from dc I feel u it is what it is peronally
    to hell with whatever place wears em first as long as you share the same love
    for foams is all that matters. If I have the cash I’ll cop and trade
    for purple joints

  • haux

    If you think mocler and marmot are tacky then what do you wear as a coat?

  • yourpops

    haux gtfu please.nikeboot = metro area. wale just fell back on some chill shit in the cypher thats the way to go. krs was mean

  • j.ny

    F#CK A FOAMPOSITE LAND…NY dudes LOVE foams (their ok to me) and i guess DC dudes love foams too..and thats that..Oh and its just not DC dudes that hate ny cats..its a nationwide thing..but we love the hate 🙂
    by the way these are pretty nice..nike did right with the translu. sole

  • haux

    eff it i’m tired of this disagreement. Asolos^

  • “yall Ryan Leaf, Pervis Elli-seen…and it’s not a dang thing… black Yukon (UCONN) know what the El-Amin? and DC is like a draft lottery cuz ya skillz dont matter if u unda six feet” WOWWWWWW! “Keep a dub in the glove like GP”??? SHEESH
    “wait on my return like I’m Vai Sikahema” Punt returner? over yall head i know. shout to them Eagles

    I digress…copper foams are a must cop. DC is def the home of Foams,flight,and Nike boots…Ive stated my case on here once before so I wont elaborate

  • Jumpmanjalen

    these are so sexy. these have more swagg than the half cants

  • kobeisdabest

    Whoa whoa north faces are warm jackets. Even though they common as fuck. The Steep tech north faces are way better than marmot. And once again NYC Runs this foam acg thing fuck what ya heard. And niggas do not rock uptowns up here that much anymore

  • Hye Style Kid

    i wanted em before but kinda skeptic about em seein a actual pic makes me want em now Wale representin our area with the shoes idk bout the music sometimes but aye i cant hate keep doing ya thing wale and good post G Roc

  • am95connoisseur aka 4daloveofdasneekz

    Wale is good for a hot 16 every now and then…… his 15 mins is up. His kick game is better than his rhyming. If he got his rhymes way in advance like his kicks…. maybe we could talk… The did kill the CYPHER though…. Putting him next to a MOS DEF or BLACKTHOUGHT, EMINEM or KRS really showed that he got a lot to do when it comes to mastering the MC thing.
    What’s next fellas????? Cats from the EAST gonna claim CHUCKS and CORTEZ’s next??????? Y’all be killing me…… YEAH TRI-STATE cats rock the FOAMS & ACG BOOTS but DC takes it somewhere else….. They live and die for those FOAMS…. Lots of cats in the TRI-state rock CHUCKS but I don’t think the EAST is known for rockin’ ’em like that….. the AF1, SHELLTOE, WALLABEES & CONSTRUCTS is what the EAST is known for….. You guys can go back and forth with the QWERTY board THUGGIN’ but let’s not let PRIDE get in the way of the TRUTH….. PEACE

  • ZOEY FLOWERZ

  • Hye Style Kid

    Never been to new york so i cant sspeak on that but when i lived in chicago bammas wasnt on foams like that and to compare it was a while ago but i remember coming back to dc back and forth around that time and seein a lot of bammas rockin the foams as far as nyc i only knew a couple peolpe from there so dont really count i just kno out here in the DC metro we steady rockin foams and sense we keep talkin bout foams i want a pair of the red and black foams bad right now

  • aka11.5

    THEY ON THE 1 HAS SOMEONE EVER ORDER FROM SNEAKERHEAD.COM BE FROE

  • j.ny

    DCrunsit we should pay homage?..really? well thanks for supplying that nice article about the Nike Boots. But your ignorance is pretty funny. Ill give u Nike Boots but you guys run foams? Thats like me sitting here saying NY dudes run Jordans. Just leave it as each city wears one shoe more but no1 RUNS anything. It’s different shoes for different markets. And if anyone wants to be ignorant and rant like “YOOO WE ORIGINATED THAT SH*T..WE ROCKED IT B4 U GUYS SO THAT MAKES US COOLER N U GUYS WACK”..grow up.

  • Jerronimo

    Oooooooh! Those are sick. I will have to grab a pair of these when they drop. I was waiting on a pair of pennys that spoke to me and these joints are screaming my name. I saw Wale kill it in Seattle on the 17th of Oct at the Jay-Z concert. I am officially a fan. Keep doing ya thang playa!….wurd

  • D333mV33

    Wack people from NY state your claim Ive being rocking nike boots since 2001 and yall just now talking about em and for one if you know anything about the sneaker culture you would know foams are dc all day thats why my freind who has a sneaker spot in NY use to ship them to his sneaker spot on rhode island ave back in the day cus yall didn’t buy em yall about you AF1 we are about foams quite hating and to state facts yall just recently got on nike boots in dc there played out already last time I bought a pair was 4 yrs ago facts we know what it is NY keep thinking your the Ish cause at one point you where times are changing get real and keep up quite trying to claim ish that you know aint true be real

  • am95connoisseur aka 4daloveofdasneekz

    I’m from NJ/NY/CT and there’s no disrespect but D333mV33 has a point…… It’s hard to get foams up this way… especially the bigger sizes….. DMV load up on those foams…. NIKE knows it, that’s why they get the larger shipments…. I got two pair of foams and I had to get them from the DMV….. Those eggplants were gone in hrs out this way…. I probably will be getting those copper joints from down there too. LOL…. 2010 is gonna be crazy…. gotta stash some more money away…

  • edizzle

    it is in fact that NYC runs everything. u think nike markets to small towns and unknown cities? i dont think so…y do u think most of the collabo’s nike has done with has been with people from larger and more popular cities?? For example, the pigeon dunk. so keep talkin ya sh!t..as cocky as i or other new yorkers may sound. it is what it is so deal with it.

  • I dont know why all these DC,B more cats cryin about who started rockin them first, cause cats Up North especially Boston,NY,NJ,Philly areas been rockin Nike Boots since like the early 90s when ACG fisrt came out, back then you didnt have Tims, you damm sure had some Nike Boots for real for real, and we been on the Foamposite Tip since day one, soo please stop it please.

  • DCrunsit

    Like i already said, i speak what is real, not that fantasy bullshit. My brother lives in soundview so i be in both cities like that. Niggas is fakin point blank, 05′ ny niggas was calling my foams moon shoes whole time i’m laughing at them bammas.

  • Yooo DCrunsit, thats bullshit cause niggas was rockin Foams in NY before 05, now maybe the way you had them on, made them look like moon shoes.

  • YOOOOO! The Foamposite Land debate can continue here. http://theshoegame.com/articles/foamposite-land-debate-dc-vs-nyc.html

  • 4DCGoGo

    It would be hard to argue NYC has been and still is, albeit not like years prior, a fashion trendsetter. Truth be told I would go visit family in CT and NY and they just couldn’t understand why I was rockin Goadomes and New Balance 992’s. Those along with the Foams are unequivocally DC or DMV(DC-PG County-Northern VA) I gotz luv for my cousins and uncles up north but in my eyes they dressin like str8 bammaz(not quite like down south tho) We got luv tho for NY, Philly etc but u gotta understand DC is like an island…we tend to do us and not what other folks are doing across da country. Got our own music, own, slang, own style. Only now thanks to Wale and a few other DC representaz are people across the country starting to see it…but please don’t try to copy cus unless you from da DC Metro area you aint gonna get it right.

  • julian

  • Retailing next week at One Up Sneakers!!!

  • qzoxx

    Lol, NYC cats always trying to take credit for shit…just like in the 90’s when they said they started the Timberland trend…sorry fool’s that was DC, look that shit up. Cats in DC rock the Nike boots, ACG’s and foams hard for a long time.

  • Golden Child

    DC has such an inferiority complex to NYC that they have to try to claim they started certain trends (i.e. foams and Nike Boots). I’m not hating in any way. DC is a fly city, in its own way. Philly is fly, in its own way. But no city in the entire world can compare to New York. Yes, Foams are the uniform in DC and Baltimore. But in New York, cats will wear whatever the fuck they want. Thats what makes New York better than DC and all the other cities. There is much greater diversity in swag and the types of clothes people wear. In any given day, you won’t see too many niggas dressed EXACTLY the same in NYC. Everybody has their own individual style up north and I have heard many DC dudes admit this shit before. A day in NY, you might see one dude rocking the foams. In DC or Baltimore, you’ll see 10 pairs on the street before the day is over.

    I live in Maryland and the copper foams didn’t even hit the shelves out here because they sold out so fast. But I took a trip up to Philly a week after they came out and copped a pair on South Street. Those coppers were collecting dust on the shelf up in Philly. It seemed like nobody really cared about the Foams in Philly. My man that lives up there said only sneaker collectors, hypebeasts and niggas that play ball are the only ones who buy foams in Philly. In DC and Maryland, everyone will be on your dick if you’re wearing a fresh pair of foams in a hot colorway like the coppers, eggplants or royal blues.
