Nike Air Foamposite One

While no longer the main focus of the Swoosh’s Basketball category, the Nike Air Foamposite One continues delivering both nostalgia and experimentation. The latter is adding a kid-exclusive colorway inspired by “THANK YOU” bags to its roster on September 1st.
As with a previously-seen Air Force 1, the ’90s silhouette is predominantly clad in “White”. Lateral sides boast minimal “University Red” contrast, with the midfoot shank indulging in an on-theme “Just Do it” pattern. Tongues and lateral sides, however, up the ante not only with their heavier use of the scarlet hue, but also with their graphics. The ridge-laden profiles alternate between a rose duo (left shoe) and an enlarged version of the text on the midfoot shank (right shoe); Penny logos on the tongue sit underneath a single rose, and below a “Have a Nike Day” graphic on the heel. Although the kid’s Foamposite boasts a semi-translucent outsole, it forgoes the rich red of its Air Force 1 counterpart in favor of an icy blue arrangement.
