Nike is once again going retro and they're taking us back to the time period of the 1990s. This was a time when the Foamposite basketball shoe was experiencing a great success as one of their most in demand court shoes. The style became a classic, but it was soon replaced with other new innovations which the brand is so famous for producing. There are still tons of fans who will be happy to hear that the new Nike Air Foamposite is making a big comeback for 2019 and the new colorway is sure to be a hit with those who just can't seem to move beyond the comfort and agility of the sneaker. When you find a favorite, it's tough to settle for anything else regardless of how good it may be. There's a huge fanbase for the Foamposite and this has inspired the development of a new line for the upcoming new sneaker release season.
The resurgence of a classic
The Nike Air Foamposite Pro Hyper Crimson for 2019 is back and it's better than ever. If you're fond of foam comfort that provides you with plenty of support to boot, then this may be one you'll want to consider, if you're not already a part of the cult following of the Foamposite. Nike just keeps getting better and better with their innovations that make shoes feel good on your feet. The ultimate goal of the foamposite is comfort, but there's a lot more to a good shoe than making your feet feel like their surrounded by cushiony comfort. The Foamposite is designed to provide support at vital areas where it's needed. It gives you a spring in your step and greater foot control with a natural feeling that lets you know where your feet are at on the court with maximum control for greater performance both on and off the court. They're great for athletics but as an everyday walking around shoe, they fit the bill to a tee.
Earthy and natural aesthetic
The new colorway has clearly been inspired by the copper edition put out by Nike. The Hyper Crimson is strikingly similar in its appearance but it's not the same shoe. This edition has its own personality and Nike as added a few interesting features which differentiate it from the Copper clearly. The earthy metallic tone is accented with the addition of more reds which are placed on its inspiring textured upper. The reds are a nice touch but the design team wasn't yet satisfied with the aesthetic so they added accents of stark black for contrast in the locations of the carbon fiber plate, the logo swoosh placed at the mid foot, the heel and at the throat. They wet with dark tones for the out sole as well. A small crimson colored swoosh is placed on the eye-stays of the fore foot which adds an extra special element without being overdone. To complete the look the tongue features two colored stripes for a nice contrast that just ties the entire theme together. Dyed in the wool Foamposite fans are going to want to add a pair of these to their collection and it's a shoe that is set to appeal to a newer generation as well.
Pricing and availability
The new Nike Air Foamposite Pro in its Hyper Crimson colorway is set to be released to retailers on April 6th of 2019. It's coming just in time for spring. The manufacturer's suggested retail selling price of this new sneaker is set at $220. We highly recommend being one of the first in line to get your pair because there's no telling how long they're going to be available at this price on retail shelves. When the first run hits, there should be quite a few of them available and that's the time to buy. If you put it off for a few months, there's a high likelihood that local retailers will have exhausted their supplies and the savvy online retailers who buy up dozens of pairs will offer them for prices that an double the original selling price.
