The Foamposite continues to wow sneakerheads.

For the last few years, the Nike Air Foamposite One has found itself in an interesting situation. Overall, this is one of those sneakers that tends to be pretty polarizing for sneakerheads. This is due to the fact that the shoe has a very unique design. Penny Hardaway made these famous in the 90s, and for the most part, they were an East Coast thing. However, there is no doubt that people all over the world cherish this silhouette. The only issue is that these days, it doesn't fit into the trends that typically help push other models.

That said, sneakerheads who understand this shoe, are always eager to cop new models. Furthermore, they will also be more than okay with some retros whenever they come around. Throughout this year, we have actually seen a Foamposite revival of sorts. The shoe is slowly getting some new colorways, and fans are extremely excited about the possibilities. Now, however, we have some official images for a special retro that fans are bound to enjoy. Below, you can find the Nike Air Foamposite One "Metallic Red."

This is actually a sneaker that first came out all the way back in 2012. Moreover, it got another retro in 2017. Now, it is going to be making a comeback with its original details. Firstly, you can see that the entire upper is covered in a gorgeous shade of red. The metallic moniker certainly makes a whole lot of sense here as the shoe has a nice glow to it. Furthermore, the shoe has some black leather details all up the sides and the laces. This black is also found on the tongue for good measure. Once again, Nike has perfected the Foamposite aesthetic.

The release date has actually been set for June 16th with a price of $230 USD. That is in a few months from now, which gives fans time to decide if they truly want these.
