One of the most iconic designs in Nike’s long history is getting murdered out – as in blacked out, not actually murdered. Groundbreaking for a variety of reasons when it debuted in the late 90′s – its construction, price point, and unique design was unlike any other shoe of its time. It has been 17 years since it awed heads’ and it continues to remain in the upper echelon of sneakerdom till this day. The latest Air Foamposite features a nubuck-inspired finish that is a little uncanny for this silhouette, but adds level a sophistication and boldness. I think it is safe to say we are seeing this classic design transition into a pavement crusher with its street-ready materials. The Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Triple Black’ drops Friday, August 26th, in-store only at 10AM. Online release will be on Tuesday, September 2th pending availability.
