On Saturday, March 17th the Nike Foamposite One “Electrolime” will go on sale. This is noteworthy to sneakerheads for a number of reasons. The Foamposites are limited production shoes that retained quite a following ever since their
first release. The Foamposites were the most expensive Nike basketball shoes when they debuted in 1997 with a price tag of $180. This price has since climbed to $220, but Nike never has a problem selling them all out right away. Back then, the shoes were a signature shoe for Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway. A bright yellow upper gives glimpses of Golden State, while black accents, trademark branding, and icy outsoles take it back to the essence.
I have one pair of Nike Foamposites and love them. Everything is unique about the sneaker: the feel, the look, the materials, and the sole design.
They are unique and will continue to have a rabid following as long as Nike keeps the color schemes and variations rolling out every few months. If I get a pair, I will be sure to post about them.
