Newly leaked images from @Kicksfinder and @zSneakerheadz on Instagram show a first look at what's expected to be the upcoming "Eggplant" Nike Foamposite One retro. The images shared of the newest version appear to be true to the original 2009 release, as it dons a rich varsity purple color scheme throughout the entirety of the Foamposite upper, with contrasting black accents on the eyelets, inner bootie system, and shoelaces. The sneaker also features a black carbon fiber plate at the midfoot along with an icy translucent outsole below.
