These 'Nike Gucci Foamposites' take a classic Nike design and add a flair of the Italian fashion label's distinctive aesthetic.

For the most part, the Nike Gucci Foamposites maintain the original design of the Nike Air Foamposite Pro, first released in 1997. They feature a ribbed shell that is molded to fit the contours of the foot and the iconic Nike swoosh along the outer side. The Nike Gucci Foamposites also bear a standard colorway at first glance with a black upper and gum sole. However, with a closer look, it becomes apparent that the accents are displayed in 'Gym Red' and 'Gorge Green' tones, a nod to Gucci's signature colors.

The Nike Gucci shoe fits in with the sportswear brand's identity and history -- the shoe company that turned athletic footwear and sneakers into items of elite fashion.
