For most people, it’s hard to take anything named after a vegetable seriously. With the Nike Air Foamposite One “Eggplant” however, you might well change your mind as this new pair from the famous shoe brand hits the stores this July.
Nike Air Foamposite One Eggplant
Color: Black/Varsity Purple
Style Code: 314996-008
Release Date: July 29, 2017
Product Style and Silhouette
The official colors for the kicks are black and varsity purple. As the name suggests, the shoes are done primarily in the purple shade – closely resembling the ripe shade of an eggplant. Is this a bad thing? Of course not! Nike rarely releases purple-colored shoes so the Nike Air Foamposite One “Eggplant” is definitely something to look forward to.
The grooves of the shoes add character to the overall design of the kicks. The black is largely confined to the edge near the laces as well as the tongue. The result is a deep on deep design with black and purple as closely contrasting colors. Embroidered on the side is the Swoosh logo, done in a very small scale – just enough to remind you who made these shoes. The logo is done in varsity purple, allowing it to stand out against the black background.
From the images, you can tell that the kicks have a breathable tongue with a Foamposite One icon on the center, also done in varsity purple. The back portion has a similar logo with the tongue, creating an aesthetic balance for the shoes. The laces are kept simple in black shade, letting owners easily replace them if it becomes necessary.
The soles are a translucent shade of purple which doesn’t really do much for the shoes. The neutral design makes them perfect for the bold and brash eggplant shading on the shoe’s body. All in all, the Nike Air Foamposite One “Eggplant” makes for a very compelling pair.
Price and Release
The Nike Air Foamposite One “Eggplant” will be available on July 29, 2017 with a price tag of $230. Yes, these shoes are definitely more expensive than the other ones released by Nike this year, but keep in mind that the Foamposite silhouette is considered as one of the best styles available from this brand. Of course, the fact that the eggplant coloring is unique in itself adds to the appeal of these shoes. Needless to say, you’ll be the center of attention with these kicks on your feet – no matter where the night takes you. If you’re just not a fan of the Nike Air Foamposite One “Eggplant” however, you can always check out other releases by the brand.
