Even twenty years after its introduction, the Nike Air Foamposite One is still ahead of its time. It is still looks modern and is undoubtedly durable, all because of its synthetic molded foam uppers. It also fits quite comfortably and is adequately breathable due to its heel inlays and mesh tongues. Back in 2015, Nike dropped a striking Air Foamposite One colorway that was being referred to as the “Goldposite” because of the Metallic Gold hue that covered a majority of its uppers. The latest upcoming release of the Air Foamposite One is somewhat similar with the only exception that its uppers are covered in “Copper.”
Sneakerheads may not be aware and may not realize this but the Nike Air Foamposite One “Copper” originally made its retail debut not too long ago. Then again, seven years have already passed since Jordan Brand dropped this colorway of the model. However, it is still not as far back as twenty years ago when the Foamposite silhouette itself was first introduced and launched. Thus, the Air Foamposite One “Copper” is returning for the very first time ever since it first arrived at retailers and 2017’s version can be considered a retro. However, this year’s version will not look exactly identical to the original.
Recently, Instagram user @jokickz77 shared photos that showcase 2017’s upcoming Air Foamposite One “Copper” and the original 2010 version side by side. The Air Foamposite One is the second original, returning colorway of the model for 2017, the other one being the OG “Royal,” which has already made its comeback. While the 2010 and 2017 versions look almost identical, one obvious difference is that this year’s version has icy, Blue-tinged translucent outsoles. However, its foam uppers are still dressed up in the same Metallic Copper hue with Black-colored detailing.
Even though it has just been seven years, for many sneakerheads it probably feels like ages since this sneaker last arrived at retailer. Fortunately, Nike has confirmed that the Air Foamposite One “Copper” will finally hit the shelves once again on April 17th, 2017 and will retail at a price of $230.
