The Air Force 1 and Foamposite are two distinct breeds of sneaker that you’d never think would cross paths. Of course, in 2010, Nike Sportswear got a bit mad in the laboratory by introducing the Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite during the World Basketball Festival, combining the classic styling of the Air Force 1 High with the technological advancement known as Foamposite, forming a fortuitous combination of flair and class that had the the sneaker community buzzing with discussion and excitement. We haven’t seen much from the Air Force 1 Foamposite in quite a while, with the tonal-white of April 2011 being the last known release, but this latest development in the AF1 category should definitely raise a few eyebrows.
This Holiday 2012 season, Nike Sportswear will release the Nike Air Force 1 Low Foamposite, seen here in two sample colorways of a Retro Blue and a Bronzed Pewter colorway. In addition to the low-cut transformation, the swoosh design will be borrowed from the Air Foamposite One’s younger brother the Air Foamposite Pro, giving the shoe an Air Force 1 ‘Jewel’-like stature. We’re hopeful that more colorways will be on the way, so let us know what you think of the Nike Air Force 1 Low Foamposite and be sure to stick with Sneaker News on the latest developments! via asylumsneaker
these air force ones are garbage !!!!! i cant believe all the positive comments about them.... nike has only made like 5 nice pairs in the last 5 years !!!!! nothing compares to the air force ones from 2003 til 2007 !! all the garbage materials on em and bad colorways have people buying kid foams ! they need to go back to the drawing board !!!!!!
I guess I got my wish!!! Happy XXX b-day 4 the AIR FORCE 1 shoes!!! The greatest basketball and lifestyle shoe every!!!
they okay....not blown away by either but that jeweled check is hard...reminds me of AF1s from back in the 90s before they got all superhyped and overdone....maybe in an all black? Or something crazy like yellow or orange...blue is avg pewter is ugly...and the HB's gonna hype these to the fullest!
Most comments I've seen for a post about Forces in a while.. Just proves my point. Stick "Foamposite" on I and the beasts come flocking lol. Shit since its the 30th anni Nike should re release the Ueno AF1s like they said they would.
Look at all the HypeBeast that have no clue what style is these shoes go underneath the garbage and I only rock AF1 lows and have been strictly since 94. These are a no go, foams are kiddie kick trash.
If it was 2005 and I only wore AF1s, these would be a cop. But since I've moved on to other sneakers and I have 7 pairs of actual foamposites, I will wear those and leave these alone.
YOTD FORCES CHECK.......MEDICOM FORCES CHECK........BHM FORCES CHECK......FULL AIR MAX SOLE HIGH FORCES CHECK........FULL DENIM LOW FORCES CHECK........ALL WHITE 3m FORCES WITH THE MILKY MID SOLE CHECK.....NOW THESE?????? HATERS WILL CALL IT A AF-1 COMEBACK.....REAL SNEAKER HEADS KNOW THEY NEVER LEFT.......THESE R PURE FIRE!
stick "foamposite" on it and the beasts will finally be like "forces back" smh... but honestly i like. And the jewel swoosh makes it even better..
How are these NOT coming out this summer?!?!? Nike plz release them by May, at least the blue ones. I'm actually excited.
maybe I'm missing something but.....these look awful to me. Esp that goldish/silver one, upper looks claymation
HaHa you have moved on to foamposites? lol its the other way around clown Foams are for kids AF1 lows are for men. You only rocked AF1's in 2005 because nelly was rapping about it you know nothing of the culture silly Hypebeast. You say you have 7 pairs of actual foams like that gives you weight sad sad day for the lames.
nahh i agree with you these are weak, matter of fact air forces should remain something of the past.
Worth copping hypebeast?!? trust me fam you will pull more chicks in a pair of the Denim AF1 lows than these. These are loud and need to be muted. Foams are for kids.
Actually was on AF1s way before Nelly. I got off of them because they got overhyped by others. I'm not just on foams now, but I do have them. I have a wide variety of AF1s, Js, Air Maxes, Foams, Dunks, and random other trainers and basketball shoes. Just not feeling the fusion hype thats all.
It's unfortunate because you know lames are still going to do it. These really are beautiful though! I need that blue pair!
