Nike Air Foamposite Pro 'Dr. Doom' - The Drop Date

We last saw the NIKE AIR FOAMPOSITE PRO ‘DR. DOOM’ in 2006, so the popular silhouette makes a welcome return after 10 long years hibernating in Nike’s archives.

Originally released as part of Nike Sportswear’s ‘Fantastic Four’ Pack in 2006, the silhouette was designed by Nike legend Eric Avar, who is the chief architect of Kobe Bryant’s signature footwear line. Fans will be pleased that the integrity of Avar’s design has been preserved, as it features the contrasting matte black Foamposite upper with the bright white Swoosh, outsole and collar. Avar’s design pre-dates the ‘Fantastic Four’ film release, and made its debut in 1997, which means it is on the cusp of its 20th anniversary. As such, we expect a plethora of colourways and updates for the silhouette next year, but if you have a Foamposite itch that that can’t wait that long to be scratched, the ‘Dr. Doom’ arrives just in time. ‘Dr. Doom’, of course, refers to the villain from the frankly rubbish ‘Fantastic Four’ film, which received a tepid 27% Rotten Tomatoes rating. Luckily for us, Avar’s futuristic design and the crisp monochromatic colour contrasts are far, far superior to the film. The Drop Date doesn’t put a rating on trainers, but if we did, it’s safe to say the ‘Dr. Doom’ would be well north of 27%.
