The ’90s saw a number of classic Phoenix Suns-inspired basketball shoes from Nike, roughly coinciding with the Charles Barkley era of the franchise. And though Penny Hardaway’s injury-riddled tenure with the team occurred mostly in the 2000s, this upcoming Phoenix Suns colorway of Penny’s signature Foamposite One recalls that early ’90s golden era. The shoe features a metallic purple foam upper complemented with black trim and orange accents, as well as the requisite carbon fiber shank plate and translucent outsole. Check out detailed looks below, and circle your calendar for March 2nd, when the kicks are expected to hit retail shelves.
