With “midnight madness” in the air across the college basketball land, we’ve recently seen a few coinciding sneakers to help properly show some 2011-2012 school spirit on foot leading up to last night’s festivities. The ‘Oregon Pit Crew’ version of the Air Jordan III and the LeBron 9 ‘University Pack’ have made some big noise in the sneaker world lately, but no one ever saw these coming. At last night’s “Memphis Madness” event at the FedEx Forum, Penny Hardaway was in attendance to show some support to his former college squad and participate as a guest judge in the Tigers’ slam dunk contest. The real story though, was on Penny’s feet – a pair of white on white Air Foamposite Ones that were shown off on his Twitter page referred to as Memphis Madness exclusives. No word yet on a possible releases for these, so for now we’ll assume that they’re for Penny (and perhaps a select few others) only, but you know we’ll keep you posted if there are any further developments.
