Behold – the Nike Air Max Hyperposite. Can you remember the last time Nike Basketball created a Foam-based performance sneaker intended for the basketball courts? With ‘lightweight’ being the keynote detail with performance sneakers across all sports, Foamposite has taken a backseat in the realm of optimal weight category while experiencing an incredible push to the top in the Lifestyle sector, but the upcoming Air Max Hyperposite aims to combine the two with this amazing new design. Anchored by full-length basketball-specific Max Air with an upper shell composed of a Hyperfuse x Foamposite shell, the Air Max Hyperposite has all the tools to properly contain a foot, provide ample cushioning, and offer supreme breathability. This new Blue/Volt colorway (remember, we first showed you a ‘South Beach’-like colorway a month ago) serves up a sick on-foot appeal with a aggressive off-centered Swoosh on the heel, while the Foam molded upper re-images the liquid nature of the quirky material. A detailed gallery of the Air Max Hyperposite below, so take a look and let us know what you think. Photos: marqueesole

Haven t hadda sneaker blow my mind since 1997 wit da foamposite ones these hava THROWBACK VIBE! DEEZ SORTA KINDA ORIGINAL LOVE DA LEBRON 8 SOLES!
sick and tired of this blasted sprite, volt, electric green, colors every they have it, maybe these are cheapest material they can get....
These look pretty cool and innovative. I need to see them in other colorways and in person. But it's nice to see an original nike foamposite.
people are gonna hate at first then slurp em up later when they come out...let me be clear...these are dope!!!
is there a release date or price for the Hyperposite yet? wtf is Nike waiting on, the season is almost over with. This shoe definitely looks like it should be someone's signature shoe
This is the kinda shoe where the right colourway will win everybody over and the wrong colourway will disgust everyone. I'm still waiting for the right colourway.
That's a good lookin shoe!!! I would llike to try that out on the court!!! Maybe a blake griffin shoe for next year?
Thank you... Nike killed it. Lebron 8 + Foams = the elevation of Nike Basketball. Can't wait to see more colorways.
Kind of look like a LeBron 8 silhouette. I like it. Waiting for different colorways. I'm sure an all black one will be clean.
LOL actually YOU spell "colour" wrong. Color makes no sense....that would actually be pronounced co-lore....damn americans.
We spell it "colour" up here in Canada man! As for the new foams, that's a great new design. And I think it makes sense to come out with a wild, flashy design to introduce the shoe, just to catch our eyes, and set it apart from other models.
