While Hyperposites, hybrids and retro releases drop every season, the ever-growing Foamposite family tree continues to spread its branches
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.
