Nike Air Foamposite One “Doernbecher”
The annual Doernbecher collection raised the bar for its 10th Anniversary by adding one of the most popular retro silhouettes in the recent memory. Designed by Elijah Diggans, this Air Foamposite One release was inspired by the youngster’s favorite sport (baseball) and pro athlete (LeBron James).
Nike Air Foamposite One “Safari”
What was left for Nike to do to honor Tinker Hatfield’s iconic Safari print? How about putting it on the Air Foamposite One, and making it reflective. Just like the Weatherman release, the Safari Foams were paired with a matching Air Force 1 Low counterpart.
Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Asteroid”
Finishing off the year of wild Foamposite drops was the “Asteroid”, which clearly plays off the seemingly never-ending “Galaxy” theme. This Pro model travels through an asteroid cloud, pulling in some vibrant colors and patterns and even introduced the Foam’s first gradient outsole.
Nike Air Foamposite One “Oregon”
Another limited release closes out the year for the Foams-this one crafted for the Oregon Ducks and their as they head to the Alamo Bowl. Reflective, winged graphics covered the upper while UO mascot Puddles got some shoutouts via the Ducky embroidery and insignias.
