Although not one to be winning the popularity contest right now among sneakerheads, the Nike Air Foamposite family is making a commendable effort in trying to regain momentum by revealing a decent-sized selection of upcoming colorways. Particularly the Foamposite One whom after teasing forthcoming glow-in-the-dark and “Barely Green” makeups, is growing its Summer lineup with another member. Given the fact that these possess a color scheme that gradients with a stark black to “Aurora” blue transition, one can argue that its palette is inspired by the Memphis Tigers’ team colors as this is the very collegiate team that Penny Hardaway coaches currently. Furthermore, 90s-inspired decor is brought to the table as oversized jazz stripes reminiscent of Solo Dixie cup patterns accessorize the lateral walls. As of now, these are expected to release in select overseas sometime within the coming months for their standard $230 price point, but stay tuned to find out if a stateside release via Nike.com is in order.
