NIKE AIR FOAMPOSITE PRO WEEK

Nike Sportswear re-introduced the Nike Air Foamposite Pro in 2011 in a variety of energetic colorways like ‘Retro Blue’ and ‘Electric Green’, but did you know the idea of a high-intensity colorway on a Foamposite first came from the sneaker’s original run? Sneaker News kicked off a week full-o-Foams with 2002’s Varsity Red/Black Air Foamposite Pro, but we can’t call it a complete revisitation if we don’t pay homage to one of the originals – the ‘Voltage Yellow’ colorway of 1997. We don’t need to further discuss how out-of-left-field the Foamposite when it debuted in 1997 and how it has gained a cult-to-mainstream following, but looking back at the Voltage Foams reveals that there’s still a lot Foamposite possibilities to be explored.

The Voltage Foams were simply a black upper with a dark gum rubber outsole and the perfect spark of Voltage Yellow on the Swoosh and trime on the pull-tabs. When thinking of recent Foam Pro releases, the Voltage joints point out that Nike Sportswear hasn’t done a non-black Swoosh colorway in quite some time – in fact, the 2006 Dr. Doom release was the last time an Air Foamposite Pro featured the reverse format. Maybe Nike Sportswear should keep things simple by opting for a less imposing upper and experimenting with different-colored Swoosh colors? Who knows what NSW has in store for the Air Foamposite Pro, but it’s safe to say that there’s a lot left to be done. Take a look back at this OG classic and let us know if you have a pair in your stash, and be sure to check back tomorrow as we continue our Classics Revisited feature on the Air Foamposite Pro.
