They are re-retroing the Penny foamposites. That was my all-time favorite. Only shoe I wanted but could never get. Came out in 1997 and they were just SO sexy. So futuristic, yet subtle @ the same time w/ no whack designs or logos. They were ultra-light and they adapted to you feat. Love 'em. So flashy. I would've dies to get a pair. But @ the time, my foot wasn't big enough. They only had them in men's sizes, and even then they were extremely hard to get and they set a record back in the day as being the most expensive hoopin shoes. I would've been emberassed to ask my folks for them. Hell, the year prior was the first year Jordans got ridiculously expensive. W/ the AJ XI, I wore a size 6. Which is that tweener shoe size right before Nike gets you in men's. The AJ XI cost my folks $100 for a KID'S shoe. I believe the men's was $125, and that was the most expensive a shoe had ever been.
Then the next year these sexy all blue foam Penny's come out, not even a Jordan shoe, and are set @ $180 in 1997. In today's market, that would be like paying close to $300 for A PAIR of shoes.
I'd get 'em if the re-retroed them the exact way they were originally. In the Penny Blue is the ones I'd get.
I liked the white ones with the big black nike logo on the side. Jesus Shuttlesworth wears 'em in He Got Game.
But the Blue Penny's was where it was @. Like I said, so stylish and flashy. Yet also subtle. Man, what a great shoe.
