The Nike Air Foamposite is one of Nike’s most iconic sneakers they have ever released. The unique, futuristic look was groundbreaking and made the sneaker stand out from the rest when it first arrived in 1997.
Many colorways and designs have surfaced since then, a lot more miss than hit but that doesn’t seem to stop Nike from continuing to push the creative envelope with the sneaker. Some even argue that the Foamposite has run its course and is being overly produced and abused with awful designs and colorways. Which bring us to Nike’s latest incarnation of the Foamposite One, the “Tianjin”.
The sneaker pays tribute to basketball culture in the Chinese city of Tianjin, a city located in Northern China and is well-known for their deep basketball roots. We must admit the shoe is visually appealing, but doesn’t look like something that should be worn. It fits the criteria of a sneaker like the Air Mag and should be put in a sneaker museum to be marveled at.
We can appreciate the creativity with the shoe, and details are very fly. These sneakers are definitely not for the fashionably challenged though, so if you can’t pull these off stay away. So we ask you FLY gals and gents, are these FLY? Or nah? Peep more pics of the Foamposite One “Tianjin” below in the gallery, and let us know in the comment section how you feel about them?
