NIKE AIR FOAMPOSITE PRO WEEK

It’s like we hit Air Foamposite Pro Week at just the right time. Aside from our featurettes of Foam Pros of the past, we got a nice look at some unreleased samples from the mid-decade as well as some fashionable custom versions in the ‘Miami Hurricanes’ and ‘Miami Nights’. But nothing comes close to an original version, and there certainly is no Foamposite Pro or One like 2003’s release of the University Blue colorway. It was the first Foamposite Pro to feature a solid white outsole as well as leather uppers (on the lace collar), and brought in an unmatched contrast with the white interior lining. Is this the best Air Foamposite Pro ever? There are arguments for and against that statement, but before we come to a definitive answer, let’s take a closer look.

The Nike Air Foamposite Pro ‘University Blue’ arrived in 2003 as the lone Foamposite release of the year. Of course it’s much easier to appreciate the shoe now, but like many of the Foamposite releases back in the day, these were nothing more than a visual spectacle, sitting untouched on store shelves and waiting for markdowns before being picked clean. As mentioned before, this University Blue Foamposite Pro was a bit different from previous releases as it used the crisp white as its base while using leather materials – something never done on a Foamposite. So, are these the best Foamposite Pros ever, or just a middle-of-the-pack gem? Check out the gallery of this ’03 classic below and stay tuned because we’ve got more coming in the following days for Classics Revisited.

Nike should really consider retroing these in February or March of 2013. That would really start the new year off with a bang. There are a lot of foamheads (including me) that have been waiting on these for far too long!

THESE need to be released again. Much better looking than the recent Foam of the month colors Nike is doing lately.
