Everybody in the world claims to be a Jordan head, which is no problem but to keep it honest, Nike always used to lace Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway with some of the greatest sneakers known to mankind. From the Penny 1’s to the Penny 2’s (which I wear my black and blue pair proudly), Nike knew they had something good going but when they dropped the Foamposites, it was like heaven in a form of a sneaker.
As a child, I used to see all the older guys from my block with a pair. From the royal blue ones with the clear sole to the black ones with the red bottom, I always drawn close to them but moms wasn’t feeling the price tag ($200). I got older but my taste for the Foamposites was always there. It just happen that I was getting a couple dollars from 9 to 5’ing it and Nike dropped the Eggplant Foamposites.
I kid you not, I went to DTLR and copped them on my lunch break. I paid my $212, tax included, and took off my Griffeys and rock the Foamposites for the rest of my shift. I used to say the Jordan 8’s were my favorite sneakers but I always wear my Foamposites so i tend to lean towards them as being my fav. Interesting thing is my girlfriend hates them with a passion and even more that i paid that much for them, lol.
