The Nike Penny “Shooting Stars” pack will cost $500 when it launches on May 17th, 2014. These days we’re used to paying $250 for a pair of Foamposites but early info had pegged the Nike Lil Penny Posite as a $180 shoe – so the jump in price for the pack seems like a rather large one. The latter is a model that still has to truly prove itself, and we’ve got a feeling that plenty people will be grabbing the pack for split up purposes. Tell us down in the comments which of these two pairs you’re more looking forward to and stick to Sneaker News for updates on all things Foamposite.
Nike Penny “Shooting Stars” Pack
Style Code: 679766-900
Release Date: 05/17/14
I want the foamposites bad. But Nike fucked up adding the lil penny's for an extra 250$. Fuck that I'll stick to jordans.
Nike kickin out the middle man and charging reseller prices themselves. Well played Nike, well played.
Gettin my pack tomor mornin... They dope ass foams & da penny posite are comfortable shoe... Still not worth da 500. Should of priced it at 400. But very happy wit da pack itself
No thanks. And fuck high resell too. I dont spend a dime over 200 on anything. Fuck "heat". OG color ways is all I want
Plus Nike, are trying to force people to buy a shoe, that they don't even want, most people really just want the foams, that's it, and even those aren't that tough.
This is not even a real desirable pack, and for the idiots who will buy these, to try to resell, you are wasting your time, because you will only get what you paid for them as an offer, nothing more nothing less.
People nike is testing us. If we cop and make them sell out at that price. Who knows what price they will put on the nect release and their we will be like dumbasses making the shoe sell just cause it has a nice presentation and are limited. Just ask ur self what can you do with half a grand? And fuck nike for this rape. And next year only god knows how big the retail will be with air mags
For 500 i shouldnt have to pay taxes. Eff that. How you gonna charge me 499.99 and then extra tax. Straight up greedy. Then most likely gonna be a limited edition release and not a general release.
Bend over and take it the ass, Nike will continue to rape sneakerheads because they know its an addiction. $500 x .09% sales tax = $545. Can't see it for 2 shoes
HAHA!! Have hype beasts buy these and won't be able to resell for shit. I would be the shooting star foams ONLY for below retail ONLY. Not a great color way. Especially for foams
@sneakernews ima cop dem shits, real rap I dnt really want da penny joins will c wht happens wit dem.
@jeshm29 way to much! Love penny but that's too much. I bought way too many kicks lately.
@sneakernews so $400 for the Foams and $100 for the throw-ins that will flood eBay then
@_D3adpool that black pair tho
@sneakernews bullshit what is it signed by penny hardaway and the fucking dream team
@sneakernews nope they sure as hell won't
@WAVY_X bro I know steeeeep but I will find someone to sell the foams hopefully
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite yo were did you get your pack at my dude?

@agentace24 CALIFORNIA? WHAT BROKE ASS STATE YOU FROM?
@WAVY_X can't be. I was looking 300-400 range if they are that steep I should buy tha package and sell the other kicks
