With the 2012 NBA All-Star Game taking place in Orlando, Penny Hardaway called in a favor to NSW designer Mark Dolce (who designed the Zoom Rookie) for a special 1-of-1 PE. The design was inspired by Penny’s celebrated tenure with the Orlando Magic, and with Penny partaking in some of the All-Star Weekend festivities, he needed some Foamposites to fit the occasion. Here’s a look at the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Shooting Stars’ All-Star PE; it features a white Foamposite upper reminiscent of one of Penny’s legendary OG Player Exclusives, but with a unique star detailing on the black lace placket. The interior is lined with royal blue, with special insoles that read ‘Ballin is what I was born to do’ and a sick ‘Penny’ logo inspired by the classic Orlando Magic logo. The translucent outsole also gives way to additional star detailing embedded on the bottom of the outsole. Sickest Air Foamposite you’ve seen? Hope you caught ‘em during the second half of the Celebrity All-Star Game, but if you didn’t, we’ve got a detailed look below. via SoleCollector
Funny, i remember back when the dopes ( what we call foamposites in b-more) first came out back in the day. they were the ugliest, outrageously priced sneaker ever. but we loved them anyway. now everybody gotta have em. imo the p.e is better than the galaxy. i think that all us so-called sneaker heads should boycott nike for awhile until the do right by us.. remember without the consumer the can not exist
Now that's a Foamposite shoe. Don't release them Nike. Keep em in the vault for penny only. All Therese carbones don't won't these for wearing purposes only to flip smh. Limit shit to one per person.
yea my homies and I are starting a few riots for this one so none of you can get them muahhhhahhaha!
Spread a fake release date and see all the re-sellers start to camp out in advance. Just an idea to get a good laugh.
The stars don't look right the way they are placed, other than that COP Anything penny and a remotely orlando c/w = fire/sell out
50BILLION dollars says nike will for sure release these dont you guys see such detailed pictures of the shoe... this is where it all begins.. every site is goin to show these pics
if these dropped in decent quantities we could all get over not gettin those galaxies. come on nike and shutdown those twitter accounts
Dammit Reebok, you should have pulled your heads out of your asses and got back with Shaq long enough to do something similar. I'd be all over retro Shaq's
I wonder how many cw's penny he got in his closet... probably hundreds of different flavors that come out every now & then. Take a pic of them then neva see da light of day again lol.... happy i got da galaxy if tho it wasnt worth da trouble. If these would release, i would love to cop but ima have to leave them alone. Ima start gettin sum flightposites, total force max & air raids b4 resellers start gettin hold of those classics kicks next... fa reeeeal
Hate resellers suck a Dick n croak fucking up the shoe game for real collectors cant wait til Nike put more supply out so it can depreciate so yall can't profit shit
Damn, these look way better than the galaxies They should not be released though because i think Nike would purposely try to put these in the same situation as the galaxies
these are cleeeaaaan...i would cop. *gott make a correction tho...he had these in the 2nd half and wore galaxies the first half.
all you resellers can suck a dck, yall are fcking the game up.. i cant even go to a store and get a damn pair of sneakers anymore.. get a REAL job u fcking lames
Penny gets all the heat, while the fans/supporters get plain boring cw's or 20 pair run's of the Galaxy. But you the man Pen' ... much love and respect. These are straight fire. I guess if they released, Nike would make them limited, and therefore hyped, and therefore ruined. Where as at least i can enjoy them this way in their pure simple form. If only in photos.
WHOOOOOAAAAHHHH!!!!!! Nike, please don't release these to greedy resellers. Let Penny keep his PE's.
what i meant to say what that im pissed, because i cant afford these. I love shopping at pay less. At least i get brand name shoes there
Well it will only be the same shit if they allow it. Make them a GR and who ever was sleeping before needs to get their ass out there and get apair
Hey Im Hitting u up? Loser! I hate dudes who copp shoes to resell like thats kool? I thought we went shopping for clothes and shoes we like to wear?
2 desperate 2 make a quick pay out, I ain't mad at u Bro if dem fanatics u-tube bragging rights lik u then 1 gotta put out big 2 get it. 1L 2 Foamworld no doubt !
Hey Dribblezthagod, Whether you are darn honest or just pulling our leg, one thing that we are sure of..... YOU JUST LOST OVER $550 ON THESE TWO FOAMS.!!!! If I were you, it's either use them and walk like a Japanese Geisha on those size 9.5 or a Ringling Bros clown on that size 11. I mean it Bro, you now own it...feast your eyes on to it or WE FEAST OUR EYES LAUGHING AT YOU WEARING THEM! Wish you Good Luck!!!
