When the Nike Air Foamposite One made its debut in 1996, it was a once in a generation sneaker that literally changed the direction of performance Basketball sneakers forever. The Foamposite’s one-piece, seamless, molded, iridescent upper coupled with the legendary ice outsole and carbon fiber midfoot was, and still is, a site to behold. Beyond the design and look of the sneaker, on the court, the Foamposite One became synonymous with Penny Hardaway, who at the time was considered a once in a generation player, and Arizona’s memorable run to the National Championship in the NCAA tournament. After the sneaker’s initial release, Nike went on to release the Swoosh clad Nike Air Foamposite Pro in several colorways while they dabbled with a couple of new colorways of the Air Fomaposite One and several retros of the original “Penny” Nike Air Foamposite One. Over the past couple of years though, the Nike Air Foamposite One, and the Pro, have become ubiquitous, with several releases in several different colorways, and special make-ups, every season. To our knowledge, there are at least three more Foamposites dues in 2012 and several more due in 2013. So now, we ask you, with all of the Foamposites that have dropped, and all of the Foamposites that have yet to drop, what is the current State of the Nike Foamposite? Should Nike continue to churn out more colorways of the legendary sneaker, or, is it time to give the sneaker a break? Let us know how you feel in the comments section below.
