Nike Set To Release “Shooting Stars” Foamposite Pack
Reintroducing the Lil Penny Posite from 1997, Nike Sportswear packages the archived sneaker with a previously player exclusive Nike Air Foamposite 1, dubbing it the “Shooting Stars” Pack. The new foamposite was exclusive to Penny Hardaway when he laced them up in the 2012 Celebrity All-Star Game in Orlando. The foamposite sports a traditional Orland Magic colorway with an icey sole and pristine white upper that is met with hits of blue and streaks of stars. The Lil Penny Posite is re-imagined with new reflective accents and Zoom Air cushioning. The sneakers are delivered in a special box that reads “YOU GUYS REMIND ME OF MY SHOE CLOSET. I GOT TWO PENNIES AND A BUNCH OF LOAFERS.” The quote pays homage to the classic Nike campaign starring Chris Rock as Lil Penny alongside Tyra Banks and of course Penny Hardaway.
The Nike Air Foamposite One & Lil Penny Posite “Shooting Stars” Pack will be available at Nike.Com and select Nike retailers starting May 17th. Enjoy the images above and watch the video below as a reminder of the classic commercial.
