Some of the most recent contributions to Sneaker News on the Foamposite front have been custom designs in a variety of applications, but here’s one that just comes from the factory in a colorway we’ve never before seen on this Nike Basketball modern classic. The Nike Air Foamposite One has never been done in a yellow shade like this upcoming ‘Electrolime’ release for 2012, though you can’t help but wonder if this could have been close to the series’ default look had Penny Hardaway not been traded away from Golden State on Draft Day 1993. Historical connotations not withstanding, this is a vibrant look perfectly timed for the return of warm weather, though some have questioned the nickname given their decidedly yellow (and not green) appearance in each round of preview images so far. Would you have preferred something greener like last year’s Electric Green shade as seen on the Foamposite Pro, or are you already budgeting for one of the most eye-catching Foam One releases yet?
