The Nike Foamposite Lite “KryptoNate” was quite a decent release from Nike, and this one definitely turned the heads of many. The design on this one looked like it has been inspired from the Flightposite series. Though the design was very unique once sneakerheads got past first impressions and looked closer into the details of the shoe, they realized that there was still a resemblance to the Flightposites that could be found in the overall look of the shoe. Furthermore, the color scheme of this “KryptoNate” iteration consisted of just two colors. Although not the Lite version, but the Nike Foamposite One is returning in an OG colorway in 2017.
But the design, along with the innovative decoration of the shoe while using just two very pleasant looking colors, is really sweet. Featuring an upper that looks like it’s made of Kryptonite, the actual material used is glossy leather covering underneath which is foam cushioning to provide wavy design and embossed patterns on the surface. The upper is covered primarily in a green color. The base for laces and the tongue is colored in black. The base for laces is seamlessly integrated into a black area that extends from the mid of toe-box towards the rear side of the ankle support. The side panels also feature Nike’s signature Swoosh.
The original, returning colorway of the Nike Air Foamposite One is the “Royal.” 2017 is actually going to be an iconic and memorable year for the Air Foamposite One because it marks the 20th anniversary of this revolutionary Nike model. The latest reports suggest that the Air Foamposite One OG “Royal” will make its comeback at some point in January 2017. Much like the original, next year’s returning version also features foam shell uppers dressed up mostly in a Royal hue, while it is also equipped with icy translucent outsoles and sports Black-colored accents throughout. Even though an actual date has not yet been revealed, Nike has also published official photos of this OG colorway.
