If you didn’t get your 2010 Foamposite fix with the Coppers or the Eggplant, we’ve got a new exclusive drop at House of Hoops Saturday, June 19th when this Nike Foamposite Black/Red Ice hits.

The Nike Foamposite first hit the scene in 1997 on the feet of Penny Hardaway, then a guard for the Orlando Magic. The shoe was known for its space age injection-molded foam upper and eye catching clear icy sole.
This Foamposite retro takes the popular “icy” sole in a totally new direction by making it fire red. The color combined with the translucent material makes it resemble a cough drop. The Foamposite shell upper is a smokey black with red hilights on the Swoosh and Penny logos. A look at the outsole really shows the red ice in its full glory, rimming the shoe and also filling in between the herringbone traction. For more shots and a wallpaper hit the Gallery, and if you want to pick these up be sure to hit House of Hoops this summer.
