We're a month into the NBA season now, and the Nike Basketball athletes keep it coming with a great mix of this year's performance models as well as the brand's retro classics.
Penny Hardaway's Air Flight One continues to be spotted on the court, this week in the upcoming "Chicago" colorway worn by Greg Monroe and Thaddeus Young breaking out the new 'White/Game Royal' colorway. Derrick Williams also continued to wear the original black and white colorway we saw him in previously. Penny saw more love this week from two Celtics, as Rajon Rondo again wore the "Stealth" Foamposite One, and Jeff Green pulled out a pair of the Half Cent.
The most notable 2012 shoe this week is definitely Rudy Gay's beautiful pair of Hyperposite PE's with a color-shifting Foamposite upper. Who would like to see this colorway release? Elsewhere, we see the usual mix of dope PE's and iD's, and of course, appearances by LeBron, Kobe, and KD.
