Foamposite fans have something to smile about today. During a recent Twitter dialogue, Gentry Humphrey confirmed that the Nike Air Foamposite One “Shooting Stars” will release. Debuted by Penny Hardaway during the 2012 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game and worn recently by Memphis Tigers guard Chris Crawford, this pair packs a white Foamposite base, royal blue lining and star studded trim. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for an official release date for the “Shooting Stars” Nike Air Foamposite One.
Nike Air Foamposite One
Nike Foamposite technology consists of using a synthetic molded upper. The Nike Air Foamposite One, Nike Total Air Foamposite Max, Nike Air Foamposite Pro, and Nike Air 1/2 Cent use Nike Foamposite technology along with many other shoes. The Nike Air Foamposite One was the first shoe to use Nike Foamposite technology that later spawned a lighter weight evolution call Nike Flightposite.
Tomorrow, the Nike Air Foamposite One Metallic Silver/Volt sees its formal launch. Well regarded, this pair is the latest in a long run of Foamposite One drops. While the shoe has certainly shifted colorway and price point since its 1997 inception, the silo has cemented itself as one of the most popular models in sneaker history. Take a look back as we recap the complete history of Nike Air Foamposite One releases.
After an official release date was announced for the newest Nike Air Foamposite One earlier today, we have an up-close and personal look at the shimmering silhouette. This Metallic Silver/Volt color combination is the latest makeup of the wavy classic. Although this new premium style code still shines, it is a bit more subdued than recent renditions that have featured multicolored patterns and prints. A metallic silver upper is almost solid with a faint camo print, contrasted by a black ankle collar and inner lining and popped with volt accents throughout, most noticeably on the sole. Get a detailed look at the latest Foams in the gallery above, and get a pair March 1st from select Swoosh stockrooms, including shopnicekicks.
First seen on Wale’s feet, the Metallic Silver/Volt Nike Air Foamposite One has been given an official release date for fans of the footwear to finally cop. Metallic silver takes over the kick’s upper, albeit bearing a slight matte finish. As a secondary hue, volt appears here and there on the accents, culminating on the translucent outsole. Black serves its purpose on the inner lining, balancing out against the kick’s highlights. Check out the newest Foamposite in the photos below and let us know what you think about this upcoming drop in the comments below. The Metallic Silver/Volt Foamposite One will be available at Nike retailers on Saturday, March 1 for $250.
First again, Wale recently debuted the Supreme x Nike Air Foamposite One on his Instagram account. The 2012 and 2013 All-CSS MVP has a storied history of debuting Foamposite releases well before their drop date. He also has a deep catalog of Supreme kicks and gear, unofficially endorsing the brand long before the release of his fame. While a release date is unknown at this moment for the Supreme x Nike Air Foamposite One, peep the pic of Wale sporting them and let us know in the comment section if you plan on doing the same.
Never one to run out of sources of inspiration, GourmetKickz takes to his beloved Foamposite One canvas paying homage to “Hattori Hanzo” on the aptly titled custom. Drawing directly from the Kill Bill theme and color scheme, yellow provides a base layer, which is then splattered with red and accented by black. Featuring Chinese characters and appropriate silhouetted figures, the motif comes full circle with the inclusion of special edition packaging. Looking to grab a pair for yourself?
