We all know that Wu-Tang is forever, and apparently Nike does too. That is why the sportswear giant tapped the legendary super group for inspiration on their latest Air Foamposite One. Although Nike is calling these the “Optic Yellow” foams, heads have fittingly dubbed these the “Wu-Tangs.” Whatever you choose to call them, the kicks feature a fluorescent yellow shell and black detailing throughout. That’s it. Oh, what we wouldn’t do to see a “W” on these joints in place of Penny Hardaway’s one-cent logo…

Nonetheless, the Nike Air Foamposite One “Optic Yellow” is slated to release on June 24 from Nike retailers and the brand’s online shop.
