Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite

Nike brought back numerous amounts of their silhouettes this year, included, was the Air Force 1 Foamposite. Nike takes its classic Air Force 1 High silhouette and cover it in a hard-shelled foamposite material. The shell gives the sneaker premium durability and room for bold color options. The foamposite shell also allows the sneaker to work in a winter environment, withstanding the cold elements fairly well. Tonal red on red has been a long running stand out color scheme for sneakers, and it now arrives on the AF-1 Foamposite. The entire sneaker is covered in a bold red hue, fro the sole to the foamposite shell. The only contrast is seen on the branding on the insole, but the rest of the sneaker, including the interior takes on the daring tone.

The Women’s PUMA Thunder Rive Droite

Muted pink is found on the tongue and heel of the upper, with darker hits of black and heel, giving it an interesting color-blocking scheme. Elevating the sneaker even more is the balance that the neutral panels of suede and leather bring to the bold and busy sneaker.
