Up until this year, Nike’s Air Foamposites have never been never been dressed up in Gucci’s trademark black, gold, green, and red color scheme, unlike other models like the Air Trainers and SB Dunks. However, by the end of May, Instagram user @sample_gang posted a photo of an Air Foamposite Pro featuring the Gucci treatment that is rumored to be arriving at retailers on one of the September 2015 nike release dates. However, now another nearly all-white Air Foamposite Pro iteration has surfaced that is being unofficially referred to as the “White Gucci”.
In the past, the Foamposites had somehow managed to escape the trend of Gucci-themed sneakers hitting the shelves on various Nike release dates. It must be kept in mind that Nike does not have any real affiliation with the Italian brand, so sneakers like these simply draw inspiration from the company’s official color scheme and products. At first glance, many sneakerheads may even mistake this pair for a new or returning “Pearl” Foamposite rendition, but has been confirmed that this is not the case.
There are certainly no Foamposites that match this one. This never-before-seen colorway sports a pristine textured finish that is predominantly covered in white. It is the heel tabs, outsole unit, Swoosh embroideries and tongue that sport the elements inspired by Glucci, namely the Red and Green color scheme of the brand. Black and white carbon fiber detailing can also be spotted on this pair, while the lace tips are covered in metallic silver, and finally, the simple design is completed with a gum outsole.
Thus, there will apparently be two Gucci-themed Nike Air Foamposites that will be making their retail debut this year. While the nearly all-black version will be hitting the shelves earlier, this Air Foamposite “White Gucci,” which is currently its unofficial nickname, might hit the shelves on one of the October 2015 Nike release dates. Rumors also suggest that it will likely be retailing for a price of $230.
