Penny Hardaway’s 1997 OG ‘Dark Neon Royal’ Nike Air Foamposite One is a truly iconic colorway. So this new style pictured above has some huge shoes to fill, but it’s off to a good start. The ‘Sport Royal’ Foamposite One steps outside the classic formula but stops short of going for a graphic treatment, utilizing a Wolf Grey eyestay/tongue/lining setup that really draws your eye to the namesake blue upper. It’s a sign that we’ve really only scratched the surface of what’s possible with the original Foamposite shoe.
Since when does Nike do NBA team colorways for the foams? I know Spike Lee had a pair of Knicks foams but those were some kinda special run just for him. These Pheonix Suns foams are rumored to be coming soon. Stay tuned.
With the Jordan XX8 being slandered beyond recognition, its a relief that one of the great OG J’s will be making an appearance in a refreshing blue colorway this February. The Squadron Blue is sure to be a hit. Hopefully by February the XX8 will be nothing but a memory.
