Question. I get notifications from the app, but when I click the notification, it just sends me to my feed, never sends me to the product I got the notification for. Anybody else have that issue?

Penny wore them for the first time on April 4th at Madison Square Garden.

So Bibby did wear them first. Penny wore them for 14 games, 9 regular season and 5 playoff games. He wore 3 different colors (Neon Royal away, Black away, White home), although the black colorway, which he allegedly wore at Washington is still somewhat a semi mystery, since it was never 100% sure, if the shoe was black or not dark blue.

He wore the neon royals at the Knicks, at the Bucks, at Toronto, at Cleveland and during the 5 playoff games.

He wore the White ones during the home games against Chicago, Boston, Detroit and Miami.

He wore the black pair at Washington.

I watched game 5 against the Heat recently and the Magic had a legitimate chance of winning that game, if Penny would have gotten more foul calls and made all of his free throws. There were a number of questionable calls, where Mourning blocked Penny and the refs did not call a foul, but I guess that was just the way the 90s games were played, just straight battles!

Where are you watching these games?

Details from the game got me hyped. Wouldn't mind seeing a few playoff games especially after the penny and shaq 30 for 30.

Game 3, 4 and 5 of the playoffs I have on VHS and DVD. Games 1 and 2 enough photos exist.

From the Knicks and Bucks game I have seen a summary on Youtube about a year ago and there is also a Magic season documentary, which I have on DVD, which shows Penny in those games wearing the Foams, he had a pretty nice fastbreak dunk against the Bucks!

Toronto and Cleveland I saw pics once.

The game against Chicago I have on DVD.

Boston and Detroit there were photos floating around on the web.

Washington someone posted a pic in the thread, plus I found it on Getty Images then as well.

The last home game against Miami is just a guess from my side, he just played 5 minutes, which I do not why to be honest, never found out the details. I do not think that he got injured though, since the playoffs started only a couple of days later. Maybe due to rest or maybe since the Magic could not climb up the playoff ladder and so they pulled him??? Maybe somebody knows

That's a real dope touch by Nike. They didn't have to do that but they actually made that extra effort for once. I'm happy it was some of y'all that could get it. Like someone said though, it would be better if it was the shoe.

Thanks

With the release of the Royal OG upon us, I figured now would be the time to post why this shoe has a special place for me. I'm not a regular who posts in here often (usually in the Agassi or other 90s retro threads) but I wanted to add why this colorway is so special to me

When these came out, I was 20 and working full-time at Footquarters (same corporate company as Footlocker and Champs, so the employee discount was there which was great). I remember vividly, watching Arizona against Kentucky for the NCAA championship. When I watched that game (and all games back in the early 90s as all Nike teams wore SICK shoes at that time).

I knew Arizona was a Nike team, and I saw Miles Simon with the Uptempo 97's, then I saw Bibby with something? What the heck are they? I didn't see any Nike Swoosh on the sides. The shoe looked one piece with no branding (could t really see the small swoosh by the toe on TV). I was going crazy trying to figure out what they were.

This was WAY before any blogs, websites like this. No real internet like today. No way to see what the heck they were! All we had was Slam magazine with the Kicks section and the annual Kicks issue (the issue all is old heads anxiously waited for each year back then). Then I got the April 7, 1997 issue of SI (Simon on the cover) and these two pics in there gave some insight to what the heck they were..




These pics were all I had to go on in regards to what they were. Then the Nike ad with the number came out! Are they made of foam?!! What the heck are they!! Then the subway commercial with the shoes on the train and they voiceover saying it's a "Space Basketball Boot"!! These were $180 new when the Jordan XI were $125! Needless to say I wasn't getting them. That was unheard of back then!!!

Fast forward about a year after they released. I went to Richard's Sporting Goods (at least that's what I think it was at, can't recall 100%) to get the White Foamposite Pro that Pippen wore for a game or two. Didn't have my size but the guy says they had the blue color. Blue Pro's? Wait a minute..Can I see them? Low and behold, returned lightly worn but almost new OG Neon Royal Foamposite Ones! How much? $99!!! Needless to say I got them!!

And still have them to this day!!!


Shoes are still wearable, gotta reglue the carbon fiber shank but other than a few scratches, in pretty decent shape. That is why I gotta get a pair and these will always mean something to me. 👍👍👍
