Following up on yesterday’s spotlight on the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Blackout’ in our resurrected Classics Revisited section, let’s take a look at the second new Foamposite colorway of 2007 – the October Quickstrike release of the Black/Varsity Red. Much like the ‘Blackout’, this all-new Foamposite thought featured a solid black Foamposite upper, but changed things up with a solid Varsity Red outsole as well on the accompanying detail on the tongue and heel. Three years later in 2010, Nike Sportswear returned with a similar Black/Red colorway (known as the ‘Cough Drop’), providing a bit of distinction with a slightly darker, translucent outsole. If you’re still on the hunt for the original Nike Air Foamposite One Black/Varsity Red of 2007, there are some available pairs right now on eBay.
