Although the Foamposite hype has cooled off significantly over the last few years, Nike has still dropped new colorways of models like the Foamposite One and Foamposite Pro fairly regularly.
Now, it is gearing up to bring back the model made popular by players like Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett in the early 2000s-the Air Flightposite.
This time around, the model sports a “Legion Green” color scheme.
A green Foamposite shell makes up most of the upper with a black neoprene shroud encapsulating the shoe’s inner bootie.
A zipper is present up the entirety of the laces, while a black Swoosh outlined in green on the shroud and small legion green Swoosh printed on the heel area act as branding hits.
Last seen in 2014 with colorways such as “Metallic Copper” and a Knicks-themed make up, this version of the Flightposite features slightly different tooling and lacks the medial outrigger seen on the model’s OG iteration.
Anyone looking to grab the “Legion Green” Nike Air Flightposite will get the opportunity when it releases at select retailers like City Gear on Wednesday, June 20 for $200..
