If you're a die hard sneakerhead, collector, or just a basketball fan in general, you need to watch Sole Collector's latest video on the Nike Air Foamposite One.
As part of SC's "Everything You Should Know About" series, the team schools heads on one of the most iconic and innovative sneakers to ever grace the hardwood and the streets. SC starts the video by retracing the steps of the Foams starting with how long it took legendary Nike designer Eric Avar to create them, its inspiration, the unique manufacturing process, through to its debut in the 1997 NCAA Championship Game on the feet of Mike Bibby and capping off with its modern day iterations.
With the Supreme x Nike Air Foamposite getting rocked yesterday by the Lakers' Nick Young and the shoe in general capturing national headlines because of the Supreme NYC campout situation, SC does the sneaker community a solid by dropping this information so we all understand the significance of the Foams and how they are more than just hype.
