The influence of the Nike Air Foamposite One is undeniable. In the 21 years since the obscure silhouette graced Penny Hardaway’s feet, Nike has revived the material and used it throughout Nike Basketball’s lineage. And now its leading color scheme graces another Foamposite icon; the Nike Air Flightposite. Returning for the first time in four years, the model returns in near OG form, but continues to miss a key aspect to its original mold.
However, differences aside…various aspects such as the blue outlined Swoosh on the velcro tab, the silhouette reflects the House of Hoops 2008 adaptation. But the sportswear release adds a new touch; a smoky blue translucent outsole. Nearly opaque but blue rather than clear or smoky grey. Release is scheduled for July 28th at SNKRS and select Nike Sportswear locations.
