    false, foams are very comfy and they are very very hard to scuff up and they look new for years....T/S is clearly upset that his size was sold out when he got to the store

    The foams aren't that great though - definitely not for the price.

    people where foams for fashion though, like with jeans and schitt... atleast those sneaks you posted people would wear to actually ball in (well the jordans anyway lol)

    The Kobe's are a better ball shoe than the 15's. both are ugly though as for foams they've only been hyped up since the original eggplants sold out in 09. I remember that being the first gr foam people lined up for and then came the coppers and 2010 eggplants with 🤬 glossy foam material. You can actually wear foams to play ball and there surprisingly a good shoe but really heavy. Mike bibby use to wear them in his Arizona days and some nba players today sporadically wear them also. And smh at folks complaining about the price, i have foams from the 90's early 2k that have been worn at least 100X times and still look good with zero creases and Jordan's/yezzy's that came out this year creases and scuffed after maybe 3-5X wears.

    im not saying you got can ball in foams, im saying that are ugly as fck and people dont just wear them to ball in, they wear them for fashion, with jeans and schitt... at least the 15s are used to purely ball in, i got 2 pairs, (the red 'prada' striped one, and the gold striped one) and purely balled in both, i never wear them out for fashion though, even though they look better then the foams lol but i do agree jordan and nike af1s and max's get the crease of death on the front/base

    ^Stop the lies, NY cats was wearing em when they 1st came out back in 97'.. everyone i my JHS had em, well all the fresh 🤬 who's parents had bread (me included).

    Them DC 🤬 startin rockin em when NY cats were done with em in the mid 2000's or so, when we went to exclusive SB dunks and AF1's and 🤬 . Now, we rock everything, Amax, J's, AF1 (all whites only), Foams etc.. DC 🤬 just primarily rock Foams so it look like they started the trend, but nah, thats us. They get credit for rockin NB's tho, thats bummy project 🤬 kicks where im from tho, so they can have that.
