AIR FOAMPOSITE ONE WEEK

Remember our Classics Revisited features, when we detailed some of the most memorable and criminally overlooked sneaker releases in history? We’ve covered a wide range of legendary sneakers that have been lost in obscurity or long overdue for a release, and a few have even since come back to market. We’re revisiting our Classics segment once again, but rather than pointing out one particular pair, we’ll be doing a series of week-long tributes to some of the more memorable colorways of a specific model, and what better way to kick it off than with an iconic silhouette that has in recent years risen from cult classic to contemporary marketplace juggernaut – the Nike Air Foamposite One.

For a decade, the Foamposite-crazed community only had the ‘Pro’ to live off of, as the Foamposite One was never released in another colorway since the sneaker first released in 1997. In 2007, ten calendar years after the debut, Nike released a slew of Nike Air Foamposite One colorways, kicking things off with the OG ‘Royal’ in January of that year.  Later on, Nike came through with three other colorways, starting with the Black/Anthracite ‘Blackout’ in August of 2007. Truly the antithesis of the high-energy ‘Galaxy’ of 2012, the ‘Blackout’ featured a tonal black upper with a solid rubber outsole, similar to the all-black Foamposite Pro of 2000. As the first true ‘Retro’ colorway, the Air Foamposite One ‘Blackout’ demands a high price in the resale market, but a similar release confirmed for December 2012 should meet the rising demand. Stay tuned for a look at some more memorable Foam Ones throughout the week, and if you’re in need of a pair, check out what’s on eBay.

These are 100x better than those piece of $#it electro-limes. They should Re-retro these.

100% with you, those are personally my favorite two pairs of foams, and honestly both are in my all time top 10. Nike is all over the icy sole since it looks like crap so fast people will inevitably need to purchase more sooner.

that can be said to about over half of the colorways they dropped for the foams

I completely agree with you, the clear outsole is not bad, but if I had to choose between icy and black for this pair, I would choose black every single time, looks better so much longer.
