Nike Air G.O. LWP

Penny Hardaway Nike Air Go LWP Black White Blue Away Original1994, Penny returned to the hardwood. This time lacing up another Flight model dubbed the Nike Air GO LWP. The LWP (Light Weight Performance) was slightly more flashy in design yet stayed true to its name.

Coming in at just 11.5 Oz. The LWP was the lightest shoe available at the time and even today remains one of the lighter weight based sneakers ever produced by Nike. If you think about it, Jordan Brand has produced their lightest shoe to date, the Fly Wade, which comes in at 13 Oz. For a sneaker that was manufactured in 1994 and is lighter than Jordan Brand’s lightest shoe to date is nothing short of impressive.

Performance attributes found on the Air GO LWP came in the form of a lightweight Phylon midsole, an encapsulated heel & forefoot Air unit, a dynamic-stretch sleeve upper with Durabuck reinforcements and an anti-friction speed lacing system. With all of this packed into one reasonably priced $114 package, the LWP was simply ahead of its time… So ahead of its time that it made a Retro appearance in 2010 and can still be found on the feet of ballers all across the globe.
