2013 marked a major turning point in the Nike Foamposite line. For the first time since the sneakers’ initial release back in 1997 with the Nike Air Foamposite One, the lineup was dominated by printed pairs rather than solidly colored ones. Prescient sneakerheads saw this one coming; last year got us familiar with the idea of Foams featuring graphics across their uppers with the likes of the super limited, and subsequently super coveted, Nike Air Foamposite One “Galaxy” and Nike Air Foamposite One “ParaNorman” pairs. Both of those were massive sneaker stories in their own right, and their success meant that it was only a matter of time before the printed Foamposite look went a little more mainstream.

This year was the year that it happened: there were 11 pairs of Nike Air Foamposite Ones and Nike Air Foamposite Pros released since January and only three of them didn’t feature graphics across their uppers. Some of them maintained the instant sell-out precedent set by the likes of the aforementioned “Galaxy”, while others proved that the sneakerhead public wasn’t necessarily going to gobble up every graphic Foam fed to them. Today’s release of the Nike Air Foamposite One “Oregon” marks the end of the year for the Nike Foamposite lineup, so we figured now would be a good time to do a bit of reflecting on the best and the worst of the run that began with the “Fighter Jet” Foams back in February. Reflect on the trend of graphic Foams down in the comments and be sure to cast your vote to help us decide which were the best and worst Foamposites of 2013.

Nike Air Foamposite One “Fighter Jet”

The 2013 Foamposite onslaught was started off with a major bang thanks to the white/black/silver camouflage pair dubbed the “Fighter Jet”. This was the first Foamposite to feature an extra assortment of details like the dogtags and military fighter jet logos.

Nike Air Foamposite One “Whiteout”

Thought Nike was getting a bit out of hand with Foamposite colorways? The “Whiteout” erased all that chatter and offered up the cleanest Foams ever, proving that the brand hasn’t completely detoured from the tonal route.

Nike Air Foamposite One “Phoenix Suns”

One of the rare non-graphic Foams for 2013. The Nike Air Foamposite One in question one was one of a number of Nike/Jordan Brand releases this year that seemed to pay tribute to Phoenix’s favorite team.
