shooting stars nike foamposites Can the Shooting Stars Help the Foamposite Bounce Back?

It’s no secret that the Foamposite line is in a very different space than it was just a couple of years ago. When the Nike Air Foamposite One was first given the retro treatment back in 2007, the model benefited from a long absence from sneaker shelves and was suddenly a commodity silhouette. The return of the “Royal” that year set in motion a huge wave of Foamposites over the next couple of years that had the sneakers enjoying sell out status. There were House of Hoops exclusives, coveted releases like the “Copper” and “Metallic Red”, and more that all proved that the sneaker world at large had finally fully come around on the groovy, space-age sneaker.

Penny Hardaway’s name still rings out at Nike’s Beaverton campus, as evidenced by the continued signature love that he’ll be getting in the future. Not only is the Nike Penny 6 on its way, but the man’s alter ego even has its own signature model. Enter the Nike Lil Penny Posite, that sneaker whose US arrival is still pending. They’ve apparently started to release out in Korea in colorways like this white/red/reflective silver one, so we’ve got our fingers crossed that the NSW model isn’t too far from a stateside release. Continue reading for the latest photos on the pair and then give us your thoughts on the Nike Lil Penny Posite in the comments.

Since the legendary Galaxy Foamposites debuted in February of 2012, Nike Sportswear hasn’t been shy with formatting Foams with graphic prints. We’ve seen secondary takes on the outer space theme, the ParaNorman, the forgettable Weatherman series, and now the team is borrowing Tinker’s iconic Elephant Print on this latest Air Foamposite Pro development. A full Elephant Print upper, quite honestly, is far from a surprise, although the pink and red accents surely bring a twist to this ’88 flavor. These also might drop this Fall as a Wolf Grey/Hyper Pink colorway of the Pro is set to release during that time. A full shot is just below so stay tuned for the latest on Foams and let us know what you think of this newest colorway.
