NIKE AIR FOAMPOSITE PRO WEEK

Not even considering this week’s Classics Revisited features, it’s been a crazy week for the Foamposite Pro! Detailed looks at the upcoming ‘Gym Green’ gems, some great customs, and a throwback to those Chocolate Brown samples from 2005 were definite headline-makers, and sadly our five-pronged attack of the greatest Foamposite Pros come to end tonight with a look at perhaps the definitive Foamposite colorway. The Varsity Royal, we should remind you, was not an original release of the Foamposite Pro (it was, however, the original Foamposite One colorway), but instead a ‘Retro’ release in 2001. It featured the same majestic blue upper, but with the Pro-exclusive Swoosh on the upper and the solid black outsole – a rare feature of the Foamposite that is consistently a ‘want’ in the Foam-crazed community.

So, where does the Foamposite Pro go from here? It’s at an immense height in popularity at the moment and the basic laws of physics states that whatever goes up must fall down, but Foamposites don’t appear to be finished with its rise. Colorways like the upcoming “Gym Green” and last year’s Electric Green and Retro Blue will continue to be sought-after objects, but do you feel a re-release of the Varsity Royal is due, or should Nike Sportswear let this legendary colorway maintain its ‘OG’ status and continue experimenting with newer colorways and graphic details? Holler at us if you’ve got some thoughts on the matter and let us know if you’ve got the Royal Foam Pros sitting in your closet!
