First introduced in 1996, the NIKE AIR FOAMPOSITE PRO
Island Green/Island Green/Metallic Platinum 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 has made bold statements for its variety of unique patterns and colorways. A staple for its innovative one-piece shell, the Foamposite has seen iterations from pearl to elephant print. The latest release brings one of Nike’s most iconic colors to the legendary silhouette.
Illuminated in a vibrant neon-yellowish hue, the seamless upper, inspired by a molded sunglass case, features all-over Volt for the first time in the Foam’s 17-year legacy. The eye-catching tint continues on the translucent sole, mesh bootie and laces. Minimal black accents produce a pronounced juxtaposition on the shoe, including its checkered carbon fiber shank. Complementing the tonal design cues, the words “Air” and “Foamposite” make bold statements on the tongue and heel tab like the vibrant colorway itself.
Be bold in Volt. The Nike Air Foamposite Pro drops December 22th 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.
