What We Know About the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Eggplant’ Retro
There was once a time when the Air Foamposite was the shoe to own. If you remember the 2010s, Nike’s polyurethane sneaker dominated hype headlines with releases like the ‘Galaxy’ and Supreme colab causing riots – literally.
In 2023, Foams don’t garner a tonne of attention outside of their cult-like following, but that may be all about to change as we shift into the midst of a Foam resurgence. Big releases like the ‘Penny PE’ and Comme des Garçons’ wild reinterpretation of the silhouette have catapulted the shoe back into the sneaker news cycle. Rumours have also begun to surface of a ‘Galaxy’ retro, and now the ‘Eggplant’ has allegedly been locked in to return.
The ‘Eggplant’ colourway is up there with some of the best Air Foamposite One releases of all time. Originally touching down in 2009, the most recent retro was back in 2017 (pictured above). At the time of writing, leaked imagery of the latest pair has yet to surface, but you can expect the classic ‘Eggplant’ vibe and ‘Varsity Purple’ to carry the Polyurethane upper alongside black nubuck panels and accents, a mini-Swoosh and an icy midsole.
