We’re rolling into the fall months and that means that it’s time to break out your more autumn looking sneakers. 2018 started strong for the Nike Foamposite line but after All-Star weekend the line slowed down. Last year, Eric Avar’s iconic Foamposite design turned 20 years old and Nike Basketball celebrated by bringing back some of the most sought after colorways in the model’s history and some new ones that are just as clean. Now, Nike Sportswear will be adding another Air Foamposite One to their fall lineup with the brand new ‘Habanero’ colorway.
Normally sporting a set of stripes on its tongue and heel loops, this Habanero-colored selection boasts bold NIKE prints in its stead. While the new additions put a greater emphasis on branding, this shoe would not be complete without its signature ‘1-cent’ logo, a clever nod to Penny Hardaway, and an emblem that is often regarded as one of the most revered in the history of the Swoosh. Entirely red Foamposite shells are nothing new to this silhouette, as we have seen a shimmering metallic red iteration and bold varsity red selection in the past, but the version you see here is arguably the most eye catching yet. Outside of its striking crimson makeup, the rest of this Foam ushers in a stark black for contrast on elements the likes of its throat and carbon fiber plate.
