Earlier today we previewed two colorways in the Nike Air Foamposite One that Penny Hardaway rocked during the Celebrity All-Star game. We originally thought that he rocked the Nike Air Foamposite One “White-Out” PEs for the second half, but we are now learning that it was another pair created specially for the occasion.
According to Nike Sportswear Design Lead Marc Dolce, about a month ago:
“Penny called me and said, “˜Hey, I need a favor,'” laughs NSW Design Lead Marc Dolce. “He said he was going to be participating in All-Star Weekend at the Celebrity game and needed some shoes. He wanted a Foamposite that he could either play in or wear throughout the weekend that would tie back into when he played with the Magic and his time there.” Dolce explains. “His request was that he wanted it to be white and have stars on it.”
After getting off the phone, Dolce got right to work, creating some star graphics and once completed, decided to put them on this white pair of Nike Air Foamposite One, the same shoe that Penny is seen rocking on this 1997 issue of “Pro Basketball”. Check out the detailed images of the shoe. We just hope that Nike decides to release these one day…..
