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!!!
@Bigga these young cats would never understand where you coming from they dont think outside of the box they tho think everyday is Christmas
@Bigga @ Bigga I've been told some horrible truth 'bout Nikes (last time I was told it costs $14 to make a pair of Nikes) Recently, a few months back a friend told me sometimes Nikes are even made for FREE!
@Bigga these are nice, so no we won't do your fucking boycott bullshit. If you don't like a shoe then don't buy it. Stop crying
@fly li Have you seen the actual finished product, or are you making that statement based off of that b/s Photoshop image Modern Notoriety posted?
@CreatedByLeon the shoes last damn never forever never crease and scratches can be fixed on them and its way different. Metallic reds are the best imo
@"C.E.O." @Bigga on some real stuff the shoes are very cheap to make its the designers who gets the millions the labors is less than 10 dollars a day per persons I watch a documentary bout that my senior year in high school real sad yo
@AlexGottKicks ...I guess an intellectual conversation with you would be an insult so I'm going to gracefully pass on further conversation.. "Sound cute" was a figure of speech referring to you getting mad at my comment and cursing... You Silly Rabbit..
@Bigga you can't hear me, so I don't sound cute. They're jus sneakers don't get mad cus u can't afford the price tag that's put on them
