NIKE AIR FOAMPOSITE PRO WEEK

We already spent a full week reminiscing over that groovy model that got the whole Foamposite ball rolling-the Nike Air Foamposite One. This week we’re dedicating the Classics Revisited column to its younger brother, soonest successor, and no doubt most direct descendant of the Foam throne after the One’s themselves. That model is the Nike Air Foamposite Pro, one that debuted in the same year as the Foamposite One (1997) and for a long time was the go-to Retro model in the series, seeing the light of day as early as 2000 in the ‘Blackout’ colorway, whereas the Nike Air Foamposite One had a ten year wait before the first re-release. From the get-go, the Nike Air Foamposite Pro was considered to be a bit of a ‘takedown’ model, stripped of the Penny logos and shunning the One’s minimalist branding by featuring a bulbous Swoosh on the upper.

Kicking off the Nike Air Foamposite Pro’s residence in Classics Revisited for the week is this black and red banger, the spiritual predecessor of sorts to the ‘Metallic Red’ Foam One from this very year. Back then, there was no metallic sheen necessary in this 2002 release, with the pair sporting the straight up Varsity Red look along with black showing for the lining and that side Swoosh breaking apart the Foam upper. Like most of the Foamposites of the earlier generation, the Varsity Reds were a merely a regional hit and weren’t best-sellers, but the market value for these has risen to impressive numbers – that is, if a deadstock pair can even be found. Hit the jump with us to see some extra angles of the Nike Air Foamposite Pro in varsity red/black from a decade ago and let us know in the comments below if you’ve got a pair of these stashed away. Also, keep it locked on Sneaker News as we roll out the rest of Nike Air Foamposite Pro week.
