Nike doubles down on Canadian-inspired footwear with these Foamposite Ones.

The trim of and sole the shoe is in all black, with subtle highlights appearing on the tongue and heel tabs in the form 3M materials that will flash in the light. The soles are mismatched patterns of blue and green colors, while the majority of the shoe is covered in an artist’s rendition of the swirling Northern Lights. The Foamposite was an ideal silhouette for this design because the vertical ribbing on the shoe already evokes the wavy look of the Aurora Borealis.
The “Northern Lights” Foamposite One drops this Friday, February 12 for $275. Will you be lining up for them?
