When one thinks of Nike's illustrious history, especially in the basketball arena, the Air Foamposite is hard to overlook. This '90s silhouette has managed to defy the confines of its era, maintaining a sense of modernity even decades after its initial release. Its unmistakable design often has fans reminiscing about Nike's golden era of basketball footwear. As 2024 gears up, we are prepping for a handful of Foamposite releases, including the Team Gold pair. And now, from Nike's headquarters, confirmation of a reimagined OG – the Nike Air Foamposite One Royal.
This upcoming iteration of the Nike Air Foamposite One Royal is set to make waves in the sneaker community. While staying true to its roots with the rich royal blue Foamposite material encapsulating the upper, this edition brings some nostalgic features that recall an OG sample. Black details complement the radiant royal blue on the overlays, the breathable mesh collar, and the snug sockliner. A nod to its rich history, the mini Swoosh with a blue outline on the toe is reminiscent of the 1-800 advertisement during the silhouette's initial run. But the surprises don't stop there. The sole unit boasts a blue checkerboard pattern on its carbon fiber, bringing a fresh twist to this beloved classic.
The Nike Air Foamposite One Royal will release Fall 2024 through Nike and select retailers both online and in-store. Priced at $240 and available in men's sizes, this is one release you won't want to miss.
