Nike delivers the Air Foamposite One April 20, this time in Metallic Copper. The 20-year legacy of the Penny Hardaway signature line reaches new heights with the shiny, hype-worthy release. At $230, it’s a small price to pay for one of the best releases so far this year.
Air Foamposite One Metallic Copper
Release Date: April 20, 2017
Color: Metallic Copper/Black
Features: Molded Foamposite upper; foam midsole with Nike Zoom unit; rubber outsole with herringbone pattern
Penny: Heads or Tails
When the Air Foamposite One debuted in 1997, Nike knew it had something special. The futuristic silhouette was keeping up with the times as the world fast-approached a new millennium. In 2010, Nike released the Air Foamposite One “Copper,” which was met with accolades. Now in 2017, Metallic Copper emerges as the refined, forward-thinking design of the year.
Of course, while Nike was running circles around the footwear industry, Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway was doing the same on the court. Their competition, both in the sneaker world and the world of basketball, had trouble making heads or tails of the big-time ballers. With Air Foamposite One, Nike left an indelible mark on the way the world saw footwear.
Metallic Copper is on the Money
The bodacious lines of the Air Foamposite One are on the money with Metallic Copper. With a brushed but shiny finish, Metallic Copper reflects light in every step. The characteristic silhouette of the Air Foamposite One gets special attention, as Metallic Copper buffs out each individual line.
The black nubuck upper completes the colorway. With the harsh “racing stripe” cutting into the shoe’s mid line, Metallic Copper has a chance to stand out.
The clean, mean lines of what can be considered a simple colorway, make a very bold statement this week.
Check Your Pockets
Metallic Copper is definitely penny-wise, and is far from pound-foolish. The shoe is a sure bet when it comes to investing in a serious basketball shoe. The sole of the Air Foamposite One makes for one heck of a performance on the court.
The translucent rubber outsole allows for maximum bounce, while its herringbone underside maintains super grip. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without its Nike Zoom unit. As intended with its design back in 1997, the shoe is clearly cut out for some action.
Jump On It
