The Nike Foamposite One hit basketball courts in 1997 with an immediate impact. Designed by Eric Avar and inspired by a molded sunglasses case, the sneaker challenged traditional footwear manufacturing. Additionally, the Foamposite One introduced a fresh new aesthetic that both athletes and trendsetters quickly adopted. With a brilliant anodized chrome finish, the Nike Foamposite One AS represents the status of basketball’s mid-season weekend as the sport’s premier moment to shine. The shoe incorporates the Nike NYC logo as a tribute to the host city, as well as the aforementioned studded star detailing on the pull-tabs. A synthetic black eye stay panel contrasts with the gleaming upper, giving the shoe a lustrous energy befitting the event.
