The cool Foamposite from Nike started out with Penny Hardaway in ’97. The innovative molded design has always held sneakerheads in thrall, and Nike always responds to the sneakerhead happiness. So Nike is restocking the “Chromeposite” Nike Air Foamposite One — the must-have hit after this year’s all-star game.
