Nike Air Foamposite One – Copper – Release Reminder

With the comeback of the Foam species, as well as the 1/2 Cent’s creation, we reflect on an underrated NBA superstar from the diminishing years of b-ball’s golden era. When you guys first came across the Foams, did you expect it to blow up to where it is now? Let’s be real, I’m sure a bunch of you gawked in utter doubt. It’s success wasn’t because the masses randomly appreciated it’s progressive look, but rather based immensely on Anfernee Hardaway’s growing popularity. My man Penny held it down for Orlando, especially when Shaq suffered injuries in around ’95. The big man’s move to LA only forced Penny to step his game up even more. Some may be too young to recall this, only recollecting his career with the Suns. Or maybe even later with NY and Miami, as his stats plummeted. But let’s look at the 96′ Olympics. Hardaway’s consistent playing, clutch plays in the quarters against Brazil, and then his 17-point game in the finals against Yugoslavia, undoubtedly contributed to US Gold.
Of course, it really can’t be argued that some amount of his success, as well as his signature kicks, was due to the aid of humourous Nike campaigns. Lil Penny was a huge hit with basketball fans, even transcending into other aspects of pop culture (No diggety, no doubt). Whatever his mark on individuals be, the Nike Air Foamposite One is one of the brand’s biggest hits. This Dirty Copper Foam is a clever testament to the greatness of the brand’s creativity, the shoe itself, and Penny’s legacy to the game.

When word of the Nike Air Foamposite One Copper was released last year, reviews were mixed. “These look disgusting”, some said. But every time Sneaker News dropped new details and images, those frowns quickly turned upside down, and soon the Copper Foams became the “IT” shoe for the first quarter of 2010. Recently, some unfortunate news about a possible release delay of the Copper Foams was disseminated, reported even by nationwide retailers. Those new developments threw off plans of dedicated sneakerheads, as some were saving up for quite some time to finally get a pair of the penny-colored Pennys.

Well, the delay in the release was just a false alarm; the Nike Air Foamposite One Copper is set to drop tomorrow, February 13th, which was the original set release. Getting a pair won’t be easy and penny-pinching won’t do you any good as these will probably hit the $300 mark on re-sale. Sneaker News bids you good luck, because the Copper Foam One isn’t the only heat dropping tomorrow. Additional images via Pristine K on eBay
