One of Nike’s most groundbreaking basketball designs is getting a chrome carbon fiber makeover next weekend.
The brand’s Air Foamposite Pro model, which was originally issued in 1997, will be released March 17 in a “Silver Surfer” colorway. The look is also being called “Silver Age” and features a metallic Foamposite upper with a carbon fiber-like texture that matches the shoe’s mid-foot support shank.
Black accents fill in the eyelets, tongue and heel, while a smoky translucent rubber outsole finishes off the retro look. From a performance standpoint, the shoes feature responsive Zoom Air cushioning in the forefoot and heel, which means they’ll be able to hold their own on a basketball court.
The Air Foamposite Pro “Silver Surfer” retails for $250 and will launch March 7 at 10 a.m. ET on nike.com. The style will also be available from select Nike Sportswear retailers.
