Before the iconic Air Foamposite One was introduced to the world, the performance style had to go through what was called a "Wear-Test" phase. Taking place in the earliest stages, the wear-test version of the classic Air Foamposite One featured a variety of differences from the actual released version. Differences included a considerably different shade of royal blue handling the Foamposite shell, Nike Branding near the collar area and a unique outsole pattern down below.

Although not the final product, this wear-test edition of the Air Foamposite One is definitely a historic piece of Nike and Penny Hardaway memorabilia. Continue on for a detailed look at one of the few wear test pairs out there, which is currently up for grabs on eBay.
