Does anyone here know who John Tawney and Toren Orzeck are? We’ll give you a minute to think about it. Chances are you won’t recognize those names so readily, but if you’re a Foamposite fanatic (and how could you not be, with all the crazy colorways that have released and will release in ’12) the names of Tawney and Orzeck should be inserted in your sneaker knowledge glossary. Permanently. Former members of the Nike Advanced Product Engineering team (and engineers at Ford and GE prior to that), Tawney and Orzeck created ‘Foamposite’ material as a result of their efforts of  creating a material that was both lightweight and less laborious to manufacture, paving the way for some of the most revolutionary designs in Nike Basketball history.

The futuristic nature of the material was only accentuated by Eric Avar’s slick design, but in 2012, it’ll be re-introduced in fitting space-age form – the ‘Galaxy’ colorway that Sneaker News first showed you a week ago. The upper features transplanted imagery of colorful galaxies of outer space that, when combined with the Air Foamposite One design, creates a visual masterpiece that, like most piece of revolutionary art, might not be appreciated in its time. Some might think the use of the graphic print might be overkill, but Nike has a history, with shoes like the Presto, Kukini, and other sneakers on the funkier end of the spectrum of design adopting insanely detailed uppers. The Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ will not release, so check out these new images via TSG and let us know what you think, because you might not see these pop up much elsewhere.
