Nike Air Foamposite One - Dark Neon Royal
Nike Foamposites first released in 1997 as a signature shoe for Penny Hardaway during his days with the Orlando Magic. The technical name was Nike Air Foamposite One, but back then, and today, most refer to the shoes as the Nike Foamposites for short. The shoe gets its name from the Foamposite material upper that is a synthetic foam armor that over time molds to the wearer's foot. Foamposite has been used on a number of other Nike shoes including the Nike Flightposite, Total Foamposite Max, 1/2 Cent, Zoom Rookie, Barkleyposite, and many more.
The Foamposite released in 1997, but went dormant for an entire decade only to return in 2007. The shoes were not too well received hitting clearance shelves at outlets, but everything changed and the Foamposite craze was born the minute photos surfaced online of Wale wearing the Eggplant Foamposites.

Nike Foamposite Release Dates
Currently there are no release dates for Nike Foamposites. Check back for updates.
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.
For the kick that’s nowhere near the twilight of its lifespan, PK Customs presents the Nike Air Foamposite One “Sunset” Custom. Taking to the near seamless upper of the Foamposite, warm hues are muted throughout, creating a picturesque image encircling the sneaker. The translucent outsole is preserved, bearing a slight yellow tint, matching the shoe’s accents and branding. With 2014 shaping up to be a strong year custom-wise, what are your thoughts on this custom Foamposite? Feel free to drop them below in the comments.
While Hyperposites, hybrids and retro releases drop every season, the ever-growing Foamposite family tree continues to spread its branches in colorful fashion. The Nike Air Foamposite One and Nike Air Foamposite Pro serve as the roots and foundation for the franchise, originally sprouting in select colorways back in 1997.
What makes the two models different though? For the most part, it’s the big Swoosh sported on the Pro and the Penny Hardaway tagging on the Ones. While each release carries somewhat different styling and composition, this Sneaker Anatomy offering features comparison shots of both blue-based retros. Check the photos out below and let us know which model is your favorite in the comment section.
You’ve seen them in On-Foot Look, now check out the Nike Air Foamposite One “Safari” in official images. Straight from the Swoosh, these funky Foams place the popular print from the 1987 runner on the basketball boots ten years its junior. Embossed 3M accents add depth, texture and flash to the upper, while orange accents pop on the lining and branding. Look for the Nike Air Foamposite One “Safari” to release at select Nike accounts, including the Nice Kicks Shop, on November 27th.
On-Foot Look takes a trip to the wild and profiles the next Nike Foamposite. The Nike Air Foamposite One “Safari” is the latest edition of the wavy model, and features a completely printed upper. Even though when you hold it up close the famous Nike “Safari” print is evident, when you put them on your feet and view them from afar it is not as recognizable as previous renditions of the graphic. Subtle orange accents and an ice blue outsole provide bright contrast to the patterned Foam, which can be styled in a wide array of ways.
