After Reebok used Nike’s “Air” themed sneakers ingeniously through Dee Brown in the 1991 Dunk Contest by pumping up the basketball on the tongue of the Reebok Omni Pump Lite before EVERY dunk, Nike did something they probably havent done since. Responded. Usually the trendsetters in the sneaker world in the early 90’s Nike took the pump technology and expanded it further. Using the Spurs David Robinson Nike created a sneaker that better secured the ankles of the big man and became Nike’s most expensive sneaker at the time with a retail price of $175.
My heart goes out to the Leonetti family who lost not only a father, husband, brother but a very talented businessman.

The Nike Foamposite is an obvious classic and a must have in your sneaker rotations. When looking for a shoe to take on a trip or pack in your suitcase for a vacation the Foams are the way to go, especially the colorways with the solid colored bottoms.
When packing a suitcase tightly the Foam’s hard outer shell will not conform to being compressed in baggage. With majority of the coloways having a metallic upper, scuffs are a non issue and with the toe box being so small creases aren’t even possible.
The only sign of aging that is apparent in Foamposite’s are in the makes with the transparent bottom which is why we stamp the Nike Foamposite as the most durable sneaker out.
