Celebrity sneakerheads like Wale have shown us they can get new Nike Air Foamposite One colorways well in advance of their scheduled retail release dates, but not one of them can rival the collection boasted by this model’s original endorsee. Former Magic point guard Anfernee ‘Penny’ Hardaway played a major role in Orlando’s recently-wrapped NBA All-Star weekend, and not only did the ‘Galaxy’ Foam Ones make headlines nationwide, but Penny managed to push the bar even higher with a never-before-seen player exclusive. After rocking the ‘Big Bang’ colorway in the first half of Friday’s celebrity game, Hardaway switched over to the Air Foamposite One ‘Shooting Stars’ PE pictured above. It’s a design that reflects the Magic tradition while manifesting the ‘Galaxy’ All-Star theme in a mostly white/black combo that’s been one of the spring’s strongest palettes. Have a closer look after the jump and let us know if this pair could cause a similar hysteria to the one we witnessed last week.
Theyre hard but since everyone is saying theyre hard im gonna say theyre not hard to reduce hype lol
Don't believe the hype on any of these.The shit ain't selling on Ebay I did a 3 day aution on my Galaxies and only got 700 (not complaining) but just saying a few hypies spent 2stacks on these and that it Ebay be making peeps think they can make a living on Resales while collectors payn the price!
i got galaxys and these are so much better...by the way i wear my galaxys,custom adidas hoodie to match them and these..
supposedly the all whites are releasing, these are 10 x's better imo, these are very sweet. These won't top the galaxies though due to the gitd outsoles vs the much more prevalent icey sole
LOOK at ebay resellers WTF all over 2k for galaxys dam fuck you resellers no one will buy your shit thats a 100% mark up WTF!
If they ever decide to drop the infamous spacejam foams then maybe we might witness another chaotic release...
I hope these don't drop, Nike will fail agian and slap a limited tag on em. Stars on sole is dope though
Absolutely not. Not taking anything away from this shoe but I can't see anything of that magnitude happening again for a long time...
I'm getting sick of Nike showing off hard to get P.E.'s and limited colorways All it does is get me excited, stack my cash, wait til it drops only to find out I can't get em and if I did wear them, I would be a target for sleazy thugs I wearin my coppers right now in this new York city rain, I told y'all I don't really playyy no gaaames!
this has to be one of the hottest nikes i have ever seen and ive been in the game for over a decade.
"let us know if this pair could cause a similar hysteria to the one we witnessed last week" no more hype if these do drop i hope you guys nt and tsg are the last to know
I think these just might cause a little bit of mayhem. I'm sure gettin them if it's not a limited release like the last foamposites. 2 pairs please?
