A leaked photo of Nike's update on its Air Foamposite One sneakers has revealed a slightly unexpected color inspiration: the Northern Lights. And by unexpected we mean totally, incredibly obvious. After all, everybody is obsessed with the aurora borealis of late, particularly considering the light phenomenon is slowly fading. Icelandair has already dabbled with a Northern Lights-themed airplane and entire destinations and hotels have been created to cater to travelers' obsession. Still, an athletic shoe? That's pretty amazing.
