Sneaker Scoop - Nike Foamposite
Ask any sneakerhead what's one of the most sought-after model nowadays, and there's no doubt he/she will say Foams. Developed by Korean car manufacturer Daewoo, and released by Nike in 1997, Foamposite technology revolutionized the sneaker industry by creating an upper, mid, and outsole that could be made out of a single cast/mold. Despite many in the industry doubting this would actually work, designer Eric Avar's beetle-inspired idea came to life, Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway chose the Foamposite as his signature sneaker, and the rest is history. Today Nike implements Foamposite technology into many sneakers, including the Air Force 1, ACG models, and the extremely popular Barkley Posite Max. Plus, the Foamposite One and Foamposite Pro are now being re-released in fresh new colors and patterns. Look for all the fresh Foamposite releases right here at Sneakerhead.
