Year: 1997

The Foamposite may be an instant sell-through now, but things weren't so easy in 1997. Inspired by a molded coin purse [whoops, sunglass case —Ed.] of all things, the $180 shoe featured minimal branding and no visible tech aside from the carbon shank plate. Nearly 20 years later, shoe design is still catching up.
