One of the defining colorways in Nike’s history is about to drop, as the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Dark Neon Royal’ can be found at the links below.
These Orlando Magic blue Foams are back just in time for the 20th anniversary of the Penny Hardaway shoe, which was revolutionary in the 90s for the futuristic look of the sidewalls. The shoe was designed by Eric Avar based on the notion of a sneaker that felt like you dipped your foot in a “liquid bath of material”. The Foamposite material was made to mold to your feet with the heat from athletic activity, although the shoe is mostly used for off-court use at this point.
