NIKE AIR FOAMPOSITE PRO 'DARK OBSIDIAN' Dark Obsidian-Dark Obsidian-Light Aqua
First introduced in 1996, the NIKE AIR FOAMPOSITE PRO 'DARK OBSIDIAN'
was built for full-court performance and modern style with soft, lightweight cushioning and futuristic design detail. Today, the stitch-free construction and sleek, translucent sole make the Nike Air Foamposite Pro
as popular as the original.
The Nike Air Foamposite Pro: The original, reborn
Breaking through in 1997, it’s been nearly 20 years since the Air Foamposite Pro was introduced. Since then, the silhouette has lived in a lane of its own alongside its older sibling in the Air Foamposite One.
Its rugged Foamposite shell has served as a canvas for different prints, finishes and colors, and now displays a Dark Obsidian-based color scheme reminiscent of the model’s debut styles. The Dark Obsidian dominated look is energized with hits of Light Aqua on the tongue detailing, stitched forefoot Swoosh, and translucent outsole.
A classic returns to its roots. The Air Foamposite Pro drops February 6 on snkrsido.com/sportswear and at select Nike Sportswear retailers worldwide.

Nike broke all the rules of traditional shoe creation when it built the first Nike Air Foamposite, an innovative design with an upper and sole made of the same synthetic material and absolutely no stitching-a feat that some deemed impossible. Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway immediately adopted the shoe when he caught a glimpse of it while working with Nike designers. After Penny's endorsement, it wasn't long before college players jumped on the bandwagon. The Nike Air Foamposite became the most unique shoe on the hardwood in 1997.
