NIKE BASKETBALL 2000’s WEEK

Has Foamposite ever been properly used? During the original run of Foamposite and its immediate successors, only the extreme ballers gave the Posite line a chance. It simply was not a shoe for everyone, but that usually is the case for a product designed for the extremes. Consider every Posite Basketball shoe release like the debut of a high-end supercar; not for everyone, but admired by all. Today, Foamposites have reached that level of intended popularity as a Lifestyle footwear selection rather than a performance model, but the recent debut of the Hyperposite aims to change the attitude of Foam from a street-ready stomper to a sleek, lightweight, and game-changing design.

But perhaps the best-performing Foamposite shoe ever is Aaron Cooper and Jeff Johnson’s Nike Ultraposite of 2003; it was designed as somewhat of a descendant of the Flightposite Series, but the Ultraposite certainly stands on its own for a number of reasons – it was the first full-Foamposite shoe that used a full-length carbon fiber plate, but more importantly, it utilized a lighter Foam material. With almost every shoe in the ‘Posite line (with the exception of the Flightposite III) already re-issued, will we see Ultraposite make a return? More of tonight’s Classics Revisited below, so take a look at the gallery of this masterpiece and stay tuned for tomorrow’s final feature of the week.
