This Holiday season, the Nike Air Foamposite One takes on a new colorway. This iteration is different because of a few notable changes. The most predominant of those is its Gum outsole. The Nike Air Foamposite One Maroon Gum features all of the same usual suspects, but comes with a darker styling than usual.

This iteration of the Foamposite One builds on a considerably successful retro run for the model. The reflective Posite upper takes on the rich hue of Maroon, bordered by Black suede towards the ankle. The sneaker’s lacing is as thick and durable as usual. The Gum bottom serves as an interesting bright contrast to the darker tone of the Maroon upper. Check out the detailed images above and let us know what you think. Will you be shelling out for this “Maroon Gum” Foamposite One?

The Foamposite is basically a love-it-or-hate-it type of sneaker. I rarely hear about anyone thinking it’s “just ok.” There are as many die hard fans of this iconic Nike model as there are detractors. That sort of makes sense.
Even the Foamposite’s origins are a little funky. As most of us already know, this sneaker originally took an insane amount of money to put together – upwards of $750,000 just for the mold – which led to its high retail price. The Posite upper was originally concocted by Daewoo and actually started off as a liquid compound.
If you’re not into the weird history of a shoe, you have to at least admit the Foamposite One is among the strangest designs in sneaker history. Perhaps that alone will tug at your purse strings. In my opinion, Foamposites are beautiful sneakers, but that hefty price tag may just keep me from copping.
