We know what the state of Foamposite is today; campouts, riots, $220 retail, people clamoring for more and more. So what was it like before the Foamposite even hit stores? We’ve got a rare look at a Nike wear-test sample of the Air Foamposite One, a shoe that was developed after Nike’s Advanced Product Engineering team developed ‘Foamposite’ (a term coined by Toren Orzeck). As you can see, this wear-test sample features no Air Penny ‘1-Cent’ logo around the shoe and the traction ridges on the outsole are also completely different than what was released. Perhaps the funkiest detail of this sample is the molded ‘NIKE’ on the upper, which was removed in production to give the shoe the flawless and ‘one-piece’ effect. These are definitely a major collector’s item so check out the images below and check out the listing from ekinomic on eBay.
