After seeing very successful releases in Varsity Royal, Triple Black, Metallic Silver and Green Spark the Nike 1/2 Cent took an extended leave of absence to clear the floor and give the spotlight to a few other releases, mainly the round of Air Foamposite One’s, the sneakers which started it all and inspired an entire line up Foamposite sneakers.
There’s still two more Foamposite One’s to come, a reissue of the Eggplant’s and the infamous Royal Blue’s, but shortly after that Nike will bring the 1/2 Cent out of hiding in two new colorways. We’ve been hearing the rumors about these new 1/2 Cent’s for a few months but unfortunately were never able to get our hands on any photos to confirm the rumors. Thanks to G-Roc from TSG we know longer have to wonder if the rumors are true as he’s supplied the web with some catalog scans of the Nike 1/2 Cent in both of the new colorups.
With the Eggplant Foamposite One being as popular as it is, and the Nike 1/2 Cent having quite the fan base Nike figured it would make sense to carry over the color scheme from the Foams and fuse it onto a pair of 1/2 Cent’s. And make sense it does as the colorway looks to be a perfect fit for the 1/2 Cent in our opinion. Alongside those Nike will also drop a Cranberry 1/2 Cent which uses a Deep Red on the foamposite material. When we heard the original rumors about these they were referred to as Metallic Red but now that we’ve actually got a picture of the shoes they don’t really appear to have much of a metallic finish to em in these catalog scans.
No official release dates are available at this time for either of the two Nike 1/2 Cents but according to reports they’re expected to be part of Nike’s Holiday 2010 Collection. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any further details.
