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.
Before Barkley was making us laugh w/ his marble mouth filled commentarty, he was a very athletic big guy on the court in Pheonix. And before that, he was a Philly 76er wearing some kicks something like these….only w/ out the posite matierial and not quite as fresh. But these will be releasing later this year, or if you can wait, a few are available on ebay from PRC.Kicks.
