I’m not sure how many Foamposite colorways the world needs, but Nike continues to roll more colors.
The Nike Foamposite Pro was originally released back in 1997, as Penny Hardaway was running point for Orlando Magic. It is unfortunate that Penny was held down mainly by a left knee injury in 1997-1998, yet his popularity spoke for itself. He was still voted an All-Star that year. but was forced to miss the rest of the season. Nike to this day, continues to release this sneaker in all sorts of colors and themes as it has become more popular over the years.
Personally, I don’t cash out on the Foams so much as it’s a bit too bulky for my taste. I have heard that Foams are great for basketball for the bigger folks as houses a full-length Zoom Air unit. Not to mention, the highly durable Foamposite shell for long-term protection on court. You can hoop on court without ever having to worry about your feet if they get stepped on as it is built like a tank.

Back in 2012, the ‘Metallic Red’ Foams released and was welcomed in a sold out fashion. It retailed for $220 USD and flew off the shelves within minutes. This time around, the Pro version is dressed in University Red, a darker tone, for $230 USD and also sold out that on launch day.
