On December 30th, Nike will release the Blue Mirror Foams which retail at $275.

Now, this isn't the first time we've seen a high price attached to Foamposites. During All-Star Weekend, the Chromeposite colorway dropped for the same retail value.

The chrome metallic coating apparently warrants the price increase. Foams usually cost $230.

While the treatment looks great, sneakerheads quickly found out it doesn't take much to ruin the effect. The sneakers are so sensitive we even questioned if Mirror Foams were defective.

This coating on the uppers appears to get damaged when exposed to water and intense sun during hot Summer days. It's also a magnet for scratches.

Nearly $300 for a sneaker you have to be extremely delicate with seems a bit crazy if you ask me. But I want to hear from you.
