The Foamposite might be one of the quirkiest sneakers ever created by Nike, and that’s a heady statement in itself considering all the wacky designs and concepts that have been attempted and/or completed in the past. What makes the Foamposite stand out is that the shoe actually starts off as a liquid, and the development process is one of the most painstaking endeavors ever attempted in sneaker design, spearheaded by John Tawney  and Toren Orzeck of Nike APE (now under the Innovation Kitchen umbrella). The shoe also cost a ton to manufacture, which forced Nike to price the shoe at $170, which was quite a chunk of moolah above some of Nike’s priciest sneakers at the time.

Just last week, Sneaker News placed a spotlight on the original Nike Air Foamposite One for our Classics Revisited: Air Foamposite One Week, but today, we’re getting a look at some of earliest stages of Foamposite livelihood – the original patent drawings filed on August 21, 1996; here you get a step by step detailing of the ‘Method of making footwear with a pourable foam’, starting with the basic silhouette build of the shoe to the actual mold of the shoe (reported to have cost three-quarters of a million dollars). Check it out below and let us know if you think the Foamposite is the craziest Nike design ever! via Gary Warnett
