The Air Force 1 and Foamposite are two distinct breeds of sneaker that you’d never think would cross paths. Of course, in 2010, Nike Sportswear got a bit mad in the laboratory by introducing the Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite during the World Basketball Festival, combining the classic styling of the Air Force 1 High with the technological advancement known as Foamposite, forming a fortuitous combination of flair and class that had the the sneaker community buzzing with discussion and excitement. We haven’t seen much from the Air Force 1 Foamposite in quite a while, with the tonal-white of April 2011 being the last known release, but this latest development in the AF1 category should definitely raise a few eyebrows.
This Holiday 2012 season, Nike Sportswear will release the Nike Air Force 1 Low Foamposite, seen here in two sample colorways of a Retro Blue and a Bronzed Pewter colorway. In addition to the low-cut transformation, the swoosh design will be borrowed from the Air Foamposite One’s younger brother the Air Foamposite Pro, giving the shoe an Air Force 1 ‘Jewel’-like stature. We’re hopeful that more colorways will be on the way, so let us know what you think of the Nike Air Force 1 Low Foamposite and be sure to stick with Sneaker News on the latest developments! via asylumsneaker
