MTV isn’t particularly known to cover sneakers or the fast-growing culture, but when an MTV correspondent ran into Penny Hardaway at a recent event, he felt compelled to ask the Foamposite originator a few questions regarding the massive craze behind the sneaker and about Penny’s personal favorite colorway. During this short interview, Penny Hardaway states that his favorite is the all-white Foamposite (also a PE he rocked back in the day), alluding to the PE he wore in mid-October, and then noted that the shoe would in fact be arriving, bringing us full circle to his original statement made regarding an all-white Foamposite during a recent radio interview. It seems that Penny himself is a bit taken back by the Foam-nomenon, as he humbly admits that he “never could have thought, in a million years” that Foams would reach the level of popularity we see today. Thoughts on an all-white Foamposite? Check out the video below and let us know what you think.

These are trash. That white mesh will be turd brown from dust and oxidizing. Some things should not change like the black interior/laces. They will look like horrible on the feet in all white. Just give galaxy joints to local sneaker shops. Stop with excuses Nike. I'm glad u guys are aware of resellers. I like the mass email to ALL accounts the day of galaxy release. Now it's time to put accounts in "timeout" for letting a single person buy entire stock to flip.
If they had release the ones he wore during allstar weekend it would be much better. These are way too plain and are def headed to yellowing territory
Foamposites never really was my thing, especially this model. But those all white ones look so magical.
i wonder will nike also drop the other colors of the lwp's, like the copper, purple, and reds... i mean the shoes are uncomfortable, but the sole from the flightposite one's will fix that...
I will grab these if they are NOT limited. Nike needs to rewrite and get rid of the Hypebeast limited resellers that are crashing in on our turf by making things GR or a lot less limited. That way we can buy what we like again. Sure a lot of stock will sit, because A LOT of people only seem to like shoes that everyone else wants and cant have(weird? you gay?), but you can afford it Nike. And then these blogs wont be like checking the stock market for a reseller.
I need these in my life. I'd do just about anything for except short of camping out. I like the shoe but I also have a life. Camping out is outta the question
Honestly I'll pass on these. I wanted the Foam white, clear outsole, and black nubuck and tongue. That would've been crazy. I didn't want the shoe to be all white! Damn...
Penny, how bout u tell Nike to make more galaxy.foams so more sneakerheads can rock them & wouldn have to spend rapin pricez on ebay & auctions... and i alreeeeady kno these are gonna b a limited release fa these. More then likely these will b da 15 yr anniv shoe. So its gonna b harder then a kim kardashian givin u a naked lap dance to cop these
me being a sneakerhead tht likes shoes tht many arent interested in i dnt want these but they are nice, but the stains wud be ridiculous mostly the jean stains thou smh good luck to those who wanna cop
The craziness behind these are going to be just like the galaxys, you watch. Resellers are going to have a field day with us true sneaker heads.......SMH
well here we go again, let the pandemonium begin! If the DMV heads dont get our fix with these people are going to get hurt, we let nike fool us on the galaxies but its all good but i swear if nike does the same thing with these killl killl killllllll
Mega Pass once them ice soles start to go them joints gonna look like shit. And if you get a scuff bleeding. Just all around pass for me, no disrespect to anyone who likes em but thats just me.
maybe if they are a g.r., counterfeiters are gonna love this one... it is easier for them to replicate, to my fellow sneakerheads be cautious of your purchases...
Anybody NOTICE the THEME??? Galaxy foams= Space Electrolime yellow foams= Sun White on whites= Moon Pennys Orlando all star PE = Stars Wow
i doubt they intentionally made that the theme for this years foams, but good observation nonetheless
Pretty sure other hoh locations got small restocks of the orlando pairs which have already been sold (last thursday).
no thats wrong...they did secret releases at the hoh's...the one by me in pg plaza released them and none knew about it
