Back in 2006, Nike had unveiled and eventually dropped a “Fantastic Four” collection. The collection had included four different models in colorways inspired by the Fantastic Four’s team members, while a fifth silhouette represented the team’s long-standing arch nemesis, Dr. Doom. The sneakerheads had been the Air Max 90 “Mr. Fantastic,” Air Force 1 Low “Invisible Woman,” Air Max 95 “Human Torch,” Dunk High “The Thing,” and the Air Foamposite Pro “Dr. Doom.” Different sneakerheads probably have their own favorites from that collection. Ten years later, Nike has decided to bring back one of those colorways that is perfect for the annual retail shopping occasion of Black Friday.
Since all the members had their own distinct super powers, so each of the sneaker from the collection had been designed to reflect those. The Air Max 90 “Mr. Fantastic” had uppers made up of a stretchy canvas-like material. A portion of the uppers of the low-top Air Force 1 “Invisible Woman” had been transparent, to grant them an “invisible” effect. The Air Max 95 “Human Torch” had patent leather uppers dressed up in hues resembling fiercely burning flames. Finally, the uppers of Dunk High “The Thing” had been made up of a material featuring a rock-like texture.
However, the sneaker from the “Fantastic Four” collection that will make its comeback this year is the Foamposite Pro “Dr. Doom.” Much like them, Doctor Victor Von Doom also had his own unique super powers. He even has his own suit of armor and that is why Nike chose to dress up the Foamposite Pro representing him entirely in Black. However, White also makes an appearance on its foam shell uppers, specifically over its inner linings, Nike Swoosh logos, outsoles and tongues.
The fact that it is an almost all-Black sneaker is the reason that it is ideal to arrive at retailers on Black Friday. Thus, November 25th will mark the return of the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Dr. Doom” and it will retail for $230.
