For a shoe I don’t care for, the Lil Penny Posite gets top billing in the pack. The basketball leather tongue, subdued star print and what looks like 3M laces show a good bit of creative thought was put into the ugly sibling of the Foam family. Proof positive that with a little gussying up, anything can be made pretty.
The Nike ‘Shooting Stars’ Pack has a pair for both Penny and his loudmouthed associate Lil Penny. The Foamposite One finally ditches the print pattern and keeps it simple with a white upper along with the royal blue tongue for added pop. But, those white stars near the eyelets throw things off. Putting them underneath the translucent sole might have been a better look.
Releasing as a set, the Nike ‘Shooting Stars’ Pack drops on May 17th and they come in crafty packaging, the UV spotting on the box highlighting the famous commercials get a thumbs up as well. But with an expected price ranging north of $400, Lil Penny’s old flame Tyra’s Playboy shoot pics better come along as part of the deal.
