The most recent Nike Air Foamposite release that took place was that of the Air Foamposite Pro “Silver Surfer,” which at select Nike retailers on March 17th of this year. The Air Foamposite Pro “Silver Surfer” ended up retailing at a price of $250. Next in line to arrive at retailers is the Air Foamposite One “Copper,” which is set to make its comeback on April 20th, 2017 in both adult and GS sizes, which will retail for $230 and $180, respectively. At the same time, a photo of another never-before-seen Air Foamposite One colorway also surfaced online recently, which is being referred to as the “Invisibility Cloak.”
Custom sneakers were quite popular back in 2012, perhaps even more than they are today, but custom Foamposite iterations was not something sneakerheads were familiar with. Understandably so, considering the price of a Foamposite sneaker, not many would be interested in modifying them and taking the risk of ruining them. Eye Create Customs was among the few customizers who dared to create an Air Foamposite One custom, which was dubbed the “Invisibility Cloak.” It was apparently inspired by the Nike Kobe 7 “Invisibility Cloak,” but the Foampostine One custom looked like a variation of the upcoming Foamposite One “Eggplant.” This may or may not have been the case.
It is very rare for the customized version of a brand’s original sneaker model to actually get mass produced and be released by that same brand. Yet, someone on NikeTalk.com has revealed that Nike’s Holiday 2017 releases will include an Air Foamposite One colorway, which is being referred to as “Invisibility Cloak.” The photo accompanying this post is actually of the “Invisibility Cloak” custom from 2012 since there is currently no photo of the iteration that Nike plans to drop. Hence, there is no way of knowing if this Foamposite One “Invisibility Cloak” is the same as the 2012 custom or an entirely different rendition.
Whatever the case, this year’s Holiday Season is months away so it is unlikely that the sneaker discussed above will be unveiled any time soon. Nonetheless, sneakerheads who want to keep track of any news or updates regarding the Nike Air Foamposite One “Invisibility Cloak” should keep checking back.
