Over the years it has become a tradition for Nike to release a Foamposite during the NBA All-Star weekend. This year Nike decided to give the shoe a Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis theme. The end result is a flashy looking sneaker that will definitely be turning some heads. Introducing the Nike Air Foamposite One Northern Lights
The latest colorway on the Nike Foamposite One is inspired by a Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis theme which is a natural light display in the sky that is usually seen in the high latitude that becomes more and more visible in the sky the further you go north. The theme of the shoe makes perfect sense since this year’s All-Star game will be held in the north (Toronto). The shoe will come with a foam shell coming in an array of colored highlights consisting of a glowing purple, blue and green. The bold looking foam shell is then contrasted by the black leather hits placed on the eyestay and ankle collar. The tongue comes in a black mesh while hits of 3M placed are on the tongue tab as well as in a stripe down the middle of the tongue. A black sole unit along with a carbon fiber hit complete the major features on the shoe.

I appreciate the creativity behind the theme, but I’ve never been fan of the model and I don’t think I will be anytime soon. The bulkiness and overall look of the shoe was never something I got into. The lack of the Nike Swoosh on the upper is something that also doesn’t sit well with me.
