Nike is dropping the infamous “Sharpie” Foamposites which Penny Hardaway customized himself during the 1997 NBA Playoffs due to the NBA dress-code guidelines. The insoles of the Foams read ’41 points’ and ’42 points’ respectively in honor of Penny’s incredible Game 3 and Game 4 performances that allowed the Magic to even up the series with the Miami Heat in Round 1 of the 1997 NBA Playoffs. Orlando would eventually go on to lose the deciding Game 5, but the impact of Penny’s performance in his hand-crafted tiger-striped silhouette landed the shoe in sneaker lore to this day.
The pack comes equipped with a number of goodies including a special Orlando colorway of Penny’s latest, the Nike Penny 6, featuring modern-day amenities like a Megafuse constructed upper and Dynamic Flywire support. No word yet on a release date, but check out detailed photos below and be sure to let us know if you’re excited about the prospect of Penny’s ‘Sharpie’ Foams finally releasing at retail.
