The Internets have been waiting for a Nike Zoom Flight 96 Olympic retro. Thankfully, it’s almost here.
As Ray P so poignantly stated, this shoe is “one of the hottest shoes Penny Hardaway ever laced up.” Back from the 1996, perhaps Penny’s best year in the NBA, he won a Gold Medal wearing the original version of this shoe. Of course, it didn’t have the icy blue outsole, but we’ll let that slide.
Releasing just in time for the Rio Games, the date to mark in your calendars is July 7. Check up on your local boutiques and the usual ones like Sneaker Politics, Shoe Gallery, Packer Shoes, etc. if you’re trying to cop. There is no word yet on price.
Are you happy this Olympic classic is back? Sound off below.
