The Nike Air Foamposite One has steered pretty clear of too many NBA team tie-in colorways, aside from the initial ‘Royal’ colorway to go with Penny’s Magic uniform and that rare ‘Knicks’ version that Spike Lee was blessed with earlier in the year. Pushing the envelope a bit is the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Phoenix Suns’ shown here, which takes cues from the aforementioned ‘Royal’ with its blue base and then injects in some orange beyond the Foamposite sections. Will this pair hit retail and spin a career story out of the Nike Air Foamposite One like the recent string of Nike Air Penny Vs? Stay tuned for the answer and hit the jump for a full look at the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Phoenix Suns’.

awww man, that color is sooo electric!! i bet in person the color is gonna pop way more. Cant wait to see em in person
Can we as sneaker heads come together just once and show Nike that they can't continue to put out below average sneakers and give to us.. Can we protest against the corporate beast by not buying everything because it has the word "posite" on it.. These are "terrible" (Charles Barkley voice), but Nike doesn't care because its a $220 profit for a $15 produced sneaker.. These should be sold at "suggested manufactured price" rather than "suggested retail price"!!!!!! ... Pardon me but these are like a disruptive student in school.... UNACCEPTABLE NIKE!
Black or translucent Orange soles would've made this shoe "COMPLETE"! I guess in the end, I can always dye the soles black myself.
Been waiting to see these! I know this & the all white CW is a spring release! Orange sole would have been nice buuut that doesn't change weather I cop or not! These will be copped and rocked!
What is the f#@king infatuation with the clear outsole, they turn yellow after two wears i dont understand
the same damn thing poor children in china!!!!!! poor mothers trying to pay the bills and they mens be like these are HARD!!!
