I considered myself to be a big flightposite fan and I thought I knew of all their releases until JOJO changed the game and I saw these.


I never knew an all red flightposite 1 was ever released.

and then there are these:


Can someone please shed some light on the matter. Especially on the Carbon Fiber ones cause it says, "Sample" on the tag. Were these released anywhere?

those silver carbons weren't released. they were only samples. as for the other ones... the USA ones were made for the 2000 olympics & the miques were of course made for chamique holdsclaw. (sz. 12 isn't it?) & i think those black/royal ones are the pennys. (correct me if i'm wrong)
SUPPORT THE CAUSE, buy the gear​

Those were samples. I think they were made for womens? Correct me if I am wrong. Also there was a gold carbon fiber one that was made as well. I'm not sure where you can find pics, but they are made.

Hey,

'Kookies' pretty much said it, and there were also a few look-see FP1 samples that had a heel max air unit.

Thanks.

The Red FP's are sample that are actually a Men's size 9 which were mistagged as a women's size 9. They are similar to the purple FP1 in terms of reflectiveness/shine.

The silver carbon fibers are samples. I believe they are look-see samples and not standard sales samples because I have not seen very many of them around.

I'm just holding the fort (no homo! :rofl:
) until Jojo arrives. He's the FP king as far as I am concerned.

white/white/carolina

black/metallic silver (euro version)
white/black/varsity red (TB colorway)
white/black (TB colorway)
white/black/royal blue (TB colorway)
black/black (TB colorway)
black/metallic silver/white (US version)
black/dark grey/red
white/navy/silver
navy/navy/silver
black/metallic purple
black/metallic gold
black/black
black/metallic purple #8 (Kobe Bryant samples)
black/silver carbon fiber (look see samples)
white/black #23 (Mique samples)
black/black/royal blue PENNY (anfernee hardaway samples)
white/white/copper/navy #23 (Mique samples)

white/black/green KG (kevin garnett player samples)
white/navy/royal blue PENNY (penny player samples)

I was at a basketball camp this summer, and i saw a kid wearing White/Purple FP1 TBs. I have no idea where he got them or for what, and there was a number on the tab, but i don't remember what it was.

But anyway, there's one to add to the list.

Posite Pics

Wish I could have the Full Screen shots available. If anyone knows if you can have show them any bigger let me know. The Full Screen version's file size is listed at the bottom, but there isn't a link to show it. . .

The shine is actually pretty "flat" on the FP's. There isn't any really any shine at all. But they do have a "grainy" feel to them.

When I was living in Portland I saw a guy wearing a pair of the Navy Blue FP1's (that were a FTL exclusive) with an Air Max heel...anyone have pictures of those?

That was before I was REALLY into Posite's so I didn't inquire any further at the time...

Those Posite Maxes look like they turned out to be Signature Players.

These were samples for Tim Duncan in his rookie year for the playoffs. As far as I know not too many in existance and they only came in kids sizes and TD's size.
