During its peak in the early 2010s, the Air Foamposite One enjoyed unparalleled popularity. With the exception of Kanye West's Nike Yeezy collaborations, Foams were the sole sneakers that effortlessly fetched $1,000 in the unofficial market, catching Nike's attention. Consequently, there was a flood of releases (with many failing to meet expectations), ultimately leading to a sorrowful downfall.
Nike has taken a more cautious approach in recent times when it comes to releasing its Foamposite sneakers, opting for a more limited number each year. Although we recently got wind of the new "International Blue" Foamposites, Nike has officially announced on its SNKRS Live platform that the classic Royal colorway will indeed make a comeback in 2024.
The Swoosh is not only returning to its renowned Dark Neon Royal hue, but it is also introducing a captivating twist by coloring the mid-foot carbon fiber shank in a striking combination of black and blue. Similarly, the outline of the forefoot Swoosh logo will also boast this new color scheme. These distinct elements have remained hidden from view since their appearance in the iconic phone number advertisements of 1997.
Nike provided a sneak peek of the shoes during the Live stream along with a preview of the upcoming Eggplant Foamposites. However, there is more to come as we approach the anticipated Fall 2024 launch, so stay tuned for additional photos and information.
