Penny Hardaway was about one year too early for the chance to play in the Air Foamposite One on the way to a gold medal. Nike Sportswear imagines what an “Olympic” version of the Foamposite One may have looked like, with this all-new colorway sporting a patriotic makeover in red, white, and blue. The USA theme is executed perfectly on this edition of the 1997 Penny Hardaway signature model, featuring a white Foamposite upper with obsidian blue detailing and red inner lining. Of course, they had to throw in some gold as well, with each 1 Cent logo on the heels and tongues in a metallic gold finish, while gold stitching is found down the tongue and bordering the Swooshes. Check out a detailed look at the Air Foamposite One “Olympic” here today, and keep in mind you’ll be able to pick up a pair before the Rio games start, as they drop at select Nike Sportswear retailers on July 22nd.
