UPDATE: If Penny Hardaway had played for the Heat earlier in his career, you can be sure that these ‘Varsity Red’ Air Foamposites would have been his go-to sneaker in the ’97-98 season. If you’re feeling these cherry red kicks, be ready to cop when they land at selected Nike Basketball stockists on May 19, including Politics.
Nike’s Foamposite One is an oddity in terms of its long-lasting appeal. It first released at a time when sneaker designers tried out some crazy things, and unlike most of the outlandish designs to have emerged during the whimsical 90s, the clamshell design has remained popular ever since – a full 20 years, in fact. Now we’re getting another serving with the metallic ‘Varsity Red’ set to hit stores before the month is through.
The Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Varsity Red’ is set to release on May 19, check out your local stockists or hit up NDC.
