Nike Air Foamposite One – Royal/Black

The new, 20,000 seat Amway Center hosted it’s grand opening the other day in downtown Orlando, Florida, attracting upwards of 40,000 fans eager to check out the new complex. As the home of the Orlando Magic, there was plenty of memorabilia scattered around for basketball fans to check out as they toured the complex for the first time, including a display showcasing the kicks worn by two of the greatest athletes to ever dress for the Magic – Shaquille O’Neal and Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway. Penny’s signature Air Foamposite One is the main focus here, with Shaq’s former Reebok Shaq Attack IV pictured in the background. Penny’s game worn Air Foamposite One started life like every other Royal Blue model, but due to requests by league officials, some changes eventually had to be made in order for him to continue wearing the sneakers during games. Complying with the demands, Penny blackened in the recessed areas throughout the Foamposite upper, creating his own personal colorway. It’s doubtful the sneakers will ever release in this specific colorway, but the good news is that the Royal Blue Foamposite One is set to return and that right there is good enough for me.
