The Nike Air Foamposite One broke barriers in the sneaker world during its 1997 release. First off, the price was astronomical in comparison to other basketball sneakers, coming in at a cool $180 retail. In comparison, The Jordan Retro 11 Concord that launched a little over a year prior retailed at $125 which means that the Foamposite was nearly 50% more expensive than Jordan’s most luxurious sneaker to date. The design borrowed from the concord with the insertion of a carbon plate on the shoes sole, but that’s about where comparisons to any shoe can be made. This unique silhouette is one in its own, with textured Foamposite on the shoes upper, a textured ice rubber sole and a bubble textured swoosh on the side of the shoe. What started with Penny Hardaway’s Orlando Magic themed colorways has now expanded to a whole world of colors and graphics. Designed of Doppler and thermal radar systems, water bubbles and mirrors have been among the many templates thrown onto the shoes foamposite sides. The shoe has a strong following in the sneaker and streetwear world and Nike has show no signs of slowing down with production anytime soon.
