2018 is here, which means that there are going to be brand new Air Foamposite One and Pro releases that Nike is going to be dropping in the coming months. The first of these is the Air Foamposite One “Big Bang,” which is also being referred to as the “Alternate Galaxy.” In a sense, this colorway draws inspiration from and continues the theme of the original Foamposite One “Galaxy” from 2012. However, the foam shell uppers of this year’s iteration feature a colorful and vibrant galaxy print. Along with all-Black rubber outsoles, it also sports Black-colored accents all over and comes with a “Remove Before Flight” hang tag.
The 2018 NBA All-Star Game is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles, California on February 18th, 2018. As a nod to the year’s biggest basketball exhibition game, Nike has whipped up an Air Foamposite Pro “All Star.” As of now, there seem to be no actual images of this sneaker, but it is being reported that for the first time, Nike has given the Foamposite Pro a very unique, never-before-seen design element. According to these reports, the heel and Nike “Swoosh” branding on this sneaker will be removable, and it will come with several different interchangeable logos for the both of them.
Last but not least, is this premium Air Foamposite One colorway, which has been dubbed “Abalone.” Abalone is actually the name used to refer to certain sea snails that have iridescent, multicolored shells. Hence, the foam shell uppers of this Air Foamposite One PRM iteration have also been designed to sport an iridescent, multicolored finish, mimicking the shells of Abalone snails. Its carbon fiber midfoot shanks, outsoles and sock liners are dressed up in contrasting Black, while a Teal hue covers the “Penny” branding and the mini Nike “Swoosh” logos.
So far, there is no news regarding what the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “All Star” will end up looking like and when it will make its retail debut. The Air Foamposite One “Big Bang” is scheduled to arrive at retailers in February and will retail at a price of $230. The Air Foamposite One PRM “Abalone” has already started hitting the shelves at select Nike stores and also online, and is currently available at a price of $250.
