Foamposite Thermal Map
The Nike Foamposite One was released in 1997. Its innovative design and materials revolutionized the sneaker game, and put it at the forefront of the sneaker industry during its original release. The upper is made of a single piece of molded polyurethane that does not stretch or lose shape like traditional leather or other materials used on shoes. While sacrificing weight the material offers a custom "molded" fit after the material conforms to the wearer's foot. They were the signature shoe of Penny Hardaway, sporting his logo on both the tongue and heel.
The Nike Air Foamposite Pro is often mistaken for the Foamposite One, but any true sneaker fanatic knows the difference. What differentiates the two is the use of a Nike Swoosh on the lateral side of the shoe on the Nike Air Foamposite Pro. Other differences include the lack of the Penny logo on the tongue and heel. The Foamposite Pro replaces Penny's logo with the classic Nike swoosh on the heel, and the 'Air' logo on the tongue.
