Penny Hardaway Hints at All-White & All-Black Foamposite One Releases

In a recent interview with Power 105.1, Penny Hardaway discussed his ever-so-popular Foamposite line with The Breakfast Club. Penny stated that he has ?a lot of input? on the colorways and that he talks with the guys at Nike ?about six months? before the sneakers drop. He also spoke on the possibility of violence surrounding the ?Galaxy? release.

?You don?t want to do anything that you?d ever regret for a pair of sneakers,” Hardaway said. “It is (just) sneakers. I?ve read things that have been disturbing to me because you don?t want to hurt anyone or kill anyone over some sneakers.? He also stated that he?s working to bring out the all-white Foamposite One he wore in the Dwight Howard All-Star game as well as an all-black colorway. Stay tuned for more news.

  1. Watch , people still gonna be hurting & killing each other over these too … Especially in NY … Smh

    1. Nystateofmind says:

      what are you talking about ny has soo much security now nothing happened with the galaxy foams it all happened in florida

    2. Lol says:

      im glad he’s dropping all these colors. the value of the kicks are dropping which equals less violence.

      1. “Lol” for a name is perfect, because that was a JOKE, if you really think the value of Foams (aftermarket) will drop. The damn retail price is already up, so aftermarket prices ARE NOT going to drop, because of the mass releasing of Foams.

  2. Boogie says:

    To many colorways are being dropped anyways, the shoe isn’t as exclusive since the eggplants and coppers release. *shrugs*

    1. NikeCanSuckMyDick says:

      Nike designers are running out of ideas… Every shoe looks the same these days, Flywire this Flywire that… They have to make every color of the rainbow on these kicks

  3. NikeCanSuckMyDick says:

    get ready for another nike fail releases…

  4. Deez says:

    welp the the hype begin

  5. Yeah, my friend has a store out in Brooklyn, he told me about the matte black Foam one that he saw in Las Vegas at the Nike Expo a couple of weeks ago.

  6. Bigdawg5289 says:

    the more pairs that are available, or the more stores that have the sneaker, the less violence there will be

    there wouldnt be any violence if people didnt have to wait a week in line to get their pair, just to come across someone jealous and envious enough to try to skip them in line 3 hours before the doors open

  7. aSh says:

    Both should be a gr release….. Or at least have a larger quantity made…. Glad their bringing back the black on black pair…. My boy P @ UNDFTD has them and they r fire!!! Hey Nile what’s good with some flightposite 1s?????

  8. Bfo says:

    1. Tyroneleslie says:

    2. Actually All Black Foamposite One was only release once…2007. Foamposite Pro 2x, I believe they’re talking about all black Foamposite Ones.

      1. Viciousprophecy says:

        1. All black Foamposite One? 1998? Um, no they did not

    1. tooth says:

      …… ?here are all the periods you forgot to include

  11. Durty_Basturd says:

    I’m not intrigued…black and white are way too simple…

    1. Ctjounin says:

      wats wrong with simple? a flasy colorway doesnt mean a good shoe

      1. kicks says:

        Yea. The ones in the All-Star game were ballin!?

        Simple but awesome!

  12. MaicanMoney says:

    Yea i heard penny over the radio…and i was thinking…well penny if u have so much input….do something about the quantity…penny has money…nike has money..make more money by making more shoes…DUH…they already up the price.

    1. More shoes? Name a Foampsosite that isn’t readily available these days. I think they’re making enough, it’s just the greed of re-sellers in today’s game.

  13. ardie says:

    i dont understand why nike keep on making limited quantities? they can just get all the money than giving it away to all RAPIST RESELLERS. Send 300 pairs every shoe store and well see what happens

    1. Don says:

      Cuz the resellers are the reason they gonna keep puttin the price up…if we keep payin RAPIN em prices then Nike knows that well pay more for retail

  14. How many kids running around in Foamposites who’ve never seen Penny play. I swear it seems like these shoes are bigger than his NBA career at times.

    1. It’s funny because when I think about the Foamposite One I don’t even think about Penny first since he was injured that season and only played the Playoffs. I remember Mike Bibby @ Airzona rocking them in ’97 during that amazing title run

      1. D.Moore says:

        Penny wore them in 97 playoffs against tha heat put up 40 plus points in game 4 and game 5 that’s wen tha shoe took off

  15. Anonymous says:

    At least he has shed some light on possible upcoming releases, Gripe and complain all you want, the releases wont change unless someone decides to make it public and gain a following. You want to change something? Here is your shot, start a logical campaign, gain followers from people that agree, make a facebook page and a youtube video to gain exposure, you make enough noise and gain a huge following, at that point in time you may get nike’s attention. Until the people that complain do this, be quiet and quit ranting. Strength is in numbers, Show nike we are more then just hood based negro’s that like shoes. You’re Welcome

  16. will.s says:

    How about we go back to the original (97) of 180? I’m just sayin Mr Hardaway

  17. Kennygao57 says:

    Penny is going broke thats why he needs to dropp all these kicks

    1. Penny has a life time contract with Nike so how is he going broke.his contract was renewed a couple of years ago when the coppers dropped.

  18. maxmax95 says:

    the young kids don’t know anything about sneaker only what wale say

    1. So true, at least Wale isn’t just some hypebeast without any sneaker knowledge though

  19. sad to say that his shoes were more iconic than his career…

  20. bdogg says:

    i say the shooting stars drops a long with all white which he rocked in playoffs in 97 at home and an all black! pretty dope shoe. i like it but a little heavy for me personally. loved that the flight one dropped thou..great shoe for me personally!?
