The Nike Air Foamposite One “Sharpie” was the result of Penny Hardaway’s quick thinking to adhere to the league’s strict uniform policy. When the “Royal” colorway first released, there was a possibility of Penny getting fined if he wore them during a game. The lack of the color black on the sneaker violated the Orlando Magic’s (and the NBA’s) uniform regulations , so in effort to bring them up to code, Penny took a black sharpie to the sneaker, thus making sneaker history. The upcoming Nike Penny “Sharpie” Pack will not only feature the infamous Sharpie black and royal Foamposite, but it will also feature the “Orlando” Penny 6. Both come packed in a royal and black commemorative box featuring the famous “Penny Cent” logo.
The Nike Penny “Sharpie” Pack launches this Saturday, July 4th in-store at 10AM. Retail is set for $500. Please register for our raffle in-store for a chance to purchase this pack on release day.
