Foamposite Jordan 6 Rings

The last 4 years the Jordan 6 Rings have seen some pretty cool designs. The 6 Rings colorways have used patent leather, laser printing graphics, and 3M leather that glows in the dark. One of the best Air Jordan hybrids has definitely had a great run so far. And that run doesn't look like it is going to end any time soon. The next phase of the Jordan 6 Rings design now includes Foamposite. That's right, Nike Foamposite has jumped aboard the 6 Rings express.

Nike Foamposite is a synthetic molded upper. It is a sponge-like material that provides a shine only seen on a freshly waxed car. It is truly a very cool look. As long as it is featured on the right model. The Air Foamposite One, although a lightweight, stable, and quality basketball shoe; was and is a hideous shoe. On the other hand, the foamposite looks absolutely beautiful on the Air Penny 1/2 cent. The Cranberry and Eggplant colorway are particularly stunning. This synthetic molded upper provided the lightest weight in a basketball shoe when it debuted in 1997. They were also the most expensive Nike shoe for basketball at that time when they retailed at $180.

The first Nike shoe for basketball that used Foamposite was the Nike Air Foamposite One. The Foamposites were actually a signature sneaker for Penny Hardaway. There were a couple of models made for Penny that used a Foamposite upper. The Foamposite One and the 1/2 Cent. In fact, as we speak, Foamposite Retros are being dropped right and left in form of 1/2 Cent Pennys and Penny Foamposite1's. And it looks like the Penny Hardaway Foamposite combination is going to continue. Recently the Air Penny 3 was released in several colorways.

The Foamposite edition of the Jordan 6 Rings uses a beautiful royal blue foamposite upper. As all Jordan 6 Rings do, this Jordan 6 Rings shoe combines elements of the AJ 6,7,8,11,12, 13, and 14. In this case the Jordan Retro 11 upper that the Jordan 6 Rings uses is completely covered Foamposite. The outsole is that used on the Jordan 13 and the fuzzy Jumpman logo tongue is ever present in the color black. Complete with the lace locking system of the Jordan 6, this edition of the Jordan 6 Rings is nice!

With the last two Jordan 6 Rings using the Foamposite and Carbon Fiber, it looks like this shoe will continue to receive the royal treatment of high tech materials in the creative process. One of the best Jordan shoes for basketball keeps getting the red carpet treatment, each time in a new tux.
