How To Make Your Own Foamposites

Years ago, a Nike Air Foamposite One return was deemed near impossible due to the expensive production costs. Today, the heavy kicks are flying off the shelves and the colorways are near endless. Gary Warnett took the time to research the patent papers on the said shoe as well as the Footscape in a recent entry. Check out the process and parts needed to craft the popular sneakers here.

  2. Kevin Wayne says:

    Foams hast been cool since the late 90′s. I’ll never forget seeing Mike Bibby with them on at Arizona and was like “what the hell is on his feet?”. Then I saw He Got Game and was like “holy shit they got some silver ones!!!!”…..all smooth….until all the funky ass colors came out…..now it’s dead

  3. Kevin Wayne says:

    See the part where it says the returned was deemed near impossible due to expensive production costs. Now, are they flying off the shelves because Nike has more cash now than before? Or is the quality of the shoe lower?

  4. Lorenzo Jackson says:

    Quality is lower.

  5. Lorenzo Jackson says:

    They don’t make them in the same country as before either.

  6. Cooper Hayes says:

    The biggest franchise in retro basketball? How did they come up with that?

  7. Omar Berrios says:

    Blueprint for counterfeiters.

    You can Thank the DMV for introducing you guys to the Foamposite, flightposite era!! ohh and look out for them Flightposite 3s !!.?

    1. MuhammadLewis says:

      ?@Mik3y_Taught_Me? Wrong ! You can thank MIKE BIBBY for wearing foams in college. I’ve seen them around wayyy before Wale was popular & I heard of “DMV”. This is just history repeating itself & you’re area taking credit for it.

      1. MuhammadLewis says:

        ?your*

        1. Mik3y_Taught_Me says:

          ?@MuhammadLewis?if you think wale was the face of foams then clearly you don’t know, ask anyone where they started!! DMV, before bibby way before wale, no one else knew what foamposites were or have seen them before, only credit i’d give too is new york, because they got hipped, but other than that sir, Thank us later.

        2. magnousson says:

          @Mik3y_Taught_Me there was no before bibby’ he was the first one to wear them even before the NBA basketball season and penny had a chance to rock them.

          Don’t argue with fools

        4. magnousson says:

          @bleh90

          No argument. Just the facts.

        5. JulioPepSanchez says:

          ?@magnousson??@Mik3y_Taught_Me No one not sayin mike bibby didnt wear them.. we saying no regular person. meaning state,hood, city.etc.. When other people was rockin only jays and af1s? dc put foams on the map.. then everyone else started rockin them.

        6. icybottoms says:

          ?@JulioPepSanchez?dmv? im from ny always seen the old heads with the pro’s from the early 2000 releases. It’s silly for one area to claim an entire craze to them selves -_-. You either had the money or you didnt and 180 was a steep price for regular kids. Whats happened is that Nike capitalized on a new generation. Honestly never even knew D.C rocked kicks beofore wale put D.C on the map and Sneaker sites hyping up his kick selections.?

        7. JulioPepSanchez says:

          @icybottoms @JulioPepSanchez look I wouldnt have believe it either until I moved down here in 99. I hated a lot of shit bout the dmv when I got here. But real rap the foam craze started here. Yes up north u had to have the bread to get them. But down here everybody rocking reguardless of the price.. u came down here late 90s to now dc was rockin all foams flights and jays.

        8. MuhammadLewis says:

          ?@magnousson??@Mik3y_Taught_Me? Thank you.

        9. magnousson says:

          @JulioPepSanchez dude, no one hood or city, or district can claim they put the foams on the map. You act like they was slept on till now. The hype was always crazy with those kicks all over the country! Get real!

        10. melvinwilliams says:

          ?@magnousson??@JulioPepSanchez?in the 90′s I lived in virginia, florida, mississippi and the west coast never seen cats actually rocking the foams until i moved to D.C. in late 1998. I am 35 years old and have rocked every sneaker u can imagine! U have to give D.C the foams the shit is what it is.?

        11. magnousson says:

          @melvinwilliams @JulioPepSanchez LMAO @dudes still trying to claim DC put foams on the map! Listen, you’d get more respect and less flame if he said he’s seen more cats in DC wear foams than they were the ones who put foams on the map like NOBODY else ever wanted to rock them! FOHWTBS!

        12. JulioPepSanchez says:

          ?@magnousson EVERYBODY DID SLEEP ON THEM EXCEPT DC AREA

        13. magnousson says:

          @JulioPepSanchez look, its cool that you saw a lot of dudes stay up on the foams in DC…. I ain’t got no beef with that, but the same was happening EVERYWHERE! baltimore, va, new York, shit, all over the east coast! Its crazy to just say DC was the only spot! Get real!

    2. wilmore91 says:

      ?@Mik3y_Taught_Me?..lmao..i’m from south carolina, i repeat SOUTH CAROLINA and i remember my bro having an OG pair of the royal foam 1′s..that was way back in 97..may i add there were no shoe sites or anything similar to this one back then so there is no way the shoe was hyped, may i add that my bro was the only teen in my town that had foams period at the time..the dmv did not start a thing homie..it’s offensive that you even say that..it’s all about originality and taste..now-a-days it’s all about trends..if anything, the dmv started a trend.

      1. JulioPepSanchez says:

        ?@wilmore91? LIKE U JUST SAID UR BRO WAS THE ONLY 1. NO ONE ELSE IN YA HOOD. THATS IT.? WE TALKIN BOUT A BIG FAD WHERE EVERYONE 1 WAS ROCKIN THEM.?

    *Gives DC a pat on the back*

  14. Gerard Wiggins says:

    Dam they gave out the blueprint

  15. _DFrance says:

    The explosion of the sneaker game, coupled with cheaper materials and raising the price from $180 to $200 to now $220 is how they’re able to retro the shoe so frequently.?

  16. eddie fresh says:

    Lol Foams been around they a few colors back then and they stop.Nike brouught them back and cities gone wild when N.Y. Was on foams states was just getting hip 2 air force 1s.

      ?@eddie fresh?liar, baltimore was the first to wear dopes heavy

  17. jordan95 says:

    “Years ago, a?Nike Air?Foamposite?One?return was deemed near impossible due to the expensive production costs.”
    ?
    Biggest bullshit I have heard in a long time. Expensive production costs will never hold Nike back from producing a shoe. EVER

  18. eddie fresh says:

    Lol like i said N.Y. Was wearing foams and states was just getting air force 1′s ? Whats one of the main fashion states?N.Y. Didnt say we did but facts are facts we was rocking foams back then and states just got hip 2 air force 1s..

  19. eddie fresh says:

    D.C. Cant claim that with the foams they came out in early 90s states wasnt rocking foams like that

    1. JulioPepSanchez says:
