History of Foamposites
Labeled “the shoe of the future,” the Nike Air Foamposite One and Nike Foamposite Pro both made their groundbreaking debut in 1997. With its futuristic silhouette, high price tag, and never seen before construction process, they soon went on to become some of the most recognizable models in sneaker history.
Unlike most other sneaker models made up of different fabric parts, Foamposite technology differs in that the shoe starts off as a ‘liquid foam’ poured into a $750,000 mold. This means the shoe is made up of one piece that wraps around the foot, ensuring a better fit and support as well as a more durable shoe.
Although the Foamposite designs are quite divisive for some sneakerheads, it would be wrong to say they’re not iconic. These are some of the most sought-after sneakers and for any serious sneaker collector, they’re a must-have for any hypebeast’s collection! If that sounds like you, keep reading below for our easy guide.
