Even though the Tokyo Olympics will not be taking place this year, this still hasn’t stopped companies from releasing sneakers in colorways dedicated to the United States of America. On June 25th, the swoosh brand is releasing the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Blue Void” for a retail value of $230.
The Foamposite is one of Nike’s signature basketball silhouettes. Debuting back in 1997, the Foamposite technology was featured for the first time on – The Nike Air Foamposite One and Air Foamposite Pro. The One had no swoosh branding at all while the Pro had an added jewel Swoosh on the sides.
Penny Hardway unofficially became the endorser of the Air Foamposite One when it debuted. The Foamposite is known as one of the most durable sneakers in the game and was an innovative move by the swoosh brand.

In an era where sneakers were made out of leather, suede, and nubuck materials – a synthetic material such as that of Foamposite was quite unheard of. Many believe that it could not be done. However, everything changed when a little known car company, “Daewoo” made the Foamposite material.
What’s so special about the Foamposite is that it is made out of a material called polyurethane liquid. When the liquid is heated to about 130-175 degrees Fahrenheit, it can be molded into the shape we’re familiar with today.
What this material allows is for the sneaker to fit the feet of players like a glove – giving that tight snug feeling and thus more comfort and durability during the games. Some argue that the sneaker is heavy while others say that its heaviness provides protection during the games.
However, with the introduction of Zoom technology, players get added cushioning and an ability to “jump off” as soon as their feet make contact with the court.
Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Blue Void”
Releasing on the 25th of June for a retail price of $230, we see the Blue Void in a completely navy blue upper with a vibrant red swoosh on the laterals and with white swooshes on the lace guard and heels.
The Zoom technology is covered within the gum brown outsole. Playing to the USA flag’s colors, we see white overlays on the heel complemented by a red stretch on the lace guard. Tongue and heel pull along with Nike Air branding on the insole finish up the sneaker.
Where To Buy
The Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Blue Void” is set to release at Nike stores and select retailers on the 25th of June for a retail price of $230.
Alright, here comes the money or at least the hopes of it. The Nike Air Foamposite Pro is one of the pricey sneakers in Nike’s basketball line up. With a retail price of more than $230, would buyers really be interested?
Given that we have LeBron or Jordans or Kobe available in a similar price range, does it make sense for buyers to spend more than $200 on the Foamposite? Well, that’s what we’re here for.
Looking on StockX the listing of the Foamposite Pro Blue Void has not been really performing well. Given that this should be the period of time, where the resale value is at peak – we see that the resale value is well below the retail price.
Sellers have been reselling at a loss and the peak resale value has only been $205 i.e. at a loss of almost $25. Even the Bids section shows that sellers have lost hope to break even on the sneaker with the average value revolving around $200.
According to our estimates, the resale value is around $190-220. Therefore, the Foamposite Pro Blue Void is a skip.
Sneaker: Nike Air Foamposite Pro Blue Void
Release Date: 25th of June, 2020
Retail Price: $230
Resale Value: $190-220
Well, that’s all for today folks. The month of June has seen a whole lot of versatile drops and some have been profitable while others not so much.
Unfortunately, the Pro Blue Void falls into the no resale category. The contributing factor might be that the silhouette simply can’t compete against the Jordans or the Lebrons which have dominated this month.
