Designed in 1997 by the incredible influential Eric Avar, the Air Foamposite is one of the most celebrated, revered and hotly debated silhouettes from Nike’s illustrious Basketball range.
Taking classic hardcourt styles as a starting point, Avar ingested a breadth of various influences to create a boot that looked more at home in a sci-fi motion picture than it did in the NBA. But as it was initially billed as a intimidating proposition for players to wear, the Foamposite has stood the test the time with almost two decades of iteration, reworkings and gametime under its belt.
The trainer’s ability to transfer from the court to the streets is also a sign of Avar’s brilliance and this latest iteration of the classic sneaker pays homage to one of Nike’s signature prints ‘Elephant’. Decked out in the instantly recognisable grey tones of the Elephant print, the shoe is enhanced by use of Hyper Pink to the sole unit adding a truly modern touch to this storied shoe.
