Sneaker finders always look for the best sneaker pairs to purchase. Whether it’s for collection or not, they want the best pieces to invest. Nike answers this need by unveiling Nike Air Foamposite One “Royal”.
This new model is a part of Foamposite line’s 20th anniversary. Nike Sportswear celebrates this milestone by showcasing a lineup of 2017 Foamposites to hit the market.
The Nike Air Foamposite One “Royal” will have a unique look that is meant for highlighting this make’s good features. Its design also highlights the original colorway worn by Penny Hardaway 19 years ago. The colorway possesses Royal blue as its main color, which wraps around 75 percent of the upper. This color is complemented by black panel placed on the tongue area that extends to the collar. The tongue area’s details include a pair of shoelaces and a small Swoosh logo embroidered in white thread, which is placed near the blue panel.
The entire upper has rigged design that is reminiscent of waves or energy that extends from the boundaries of the colored panel. The curved part of the upper has dotted black panel that serves as accent for the upper and the outsole.
The outsole is also unique as the brand used icy blue sole wrappes the lower part of the upper. It looks more like a combination of midsole and outsole. This sole gives the footwear a rugged look yet lightweight enough for extreme movements.
The Nike Air Foamposite One “Royal” is only one of the Foamposites to hit the market. The other two has “Eggplant” and “Copper” colorways. They have the same design treatment, but with different colors. The swoosh logo on the “Copper” colorway uses the same copper-colored thread while the “Eggplant” colorway has violet color that resembles the colorway.
Nike Air Foamposite One “Royal” is the perfect way of showcasing Foamposite as it’s a part of the brand’s history. It is said to have been a part of players’ lives since it was released. While it’s a footwear, the brand took inspiration from sunglasses design, giving way to the unique look that Foamposites have.
