Ever since little Nate Robinson broke out the Kryptonate version of the Foamposite Lite at All-Star Weekend, the shoe has seen a huge spike in popularity even when it’s not dipped in glowing green hues. Wisely riding the incredible Kryptonate momentum, Nike will make the Foamposite Lite a part of this year’s Playoff Pack, creating this pair for the Phoenix Suns’ Amare Stoudemire. This version will feature a nice clean silver upper with several sections of black and some nice purple highlights on the Swoosh, lining and laces. The purple fits in well with the Phoenix color scheme and a special personalized tongue label features Amare’s nickname “STAT” (Standing Tall and Talented) and some cool tribal-looking graphics. With the Suns still scratching and clawing at the 8th and final playoff spot in the West, lets hope Amare actually gets to lace these up under the NBA’s playoff lights. Look for these to hit the shelves along with the rest of Nike’s Playoff Pack some time in May. via dunk.com.
