Nike Air Max Penny Black/Club Purple

words_Nick Engvall

Very few signature sneaker lines have been created that found success over years, many are short lived or outlive their popularity and fall into the discount bins as has beens after a couple of model years. The Jordan shoe line is easily the longest running signature line but most would agree not every model over the years has been up to expectations. If there is one person whose signature sneaker line could be tossed in the ring against Michael Jordan and actually hold its own, it is the Penny Hardaway line. Penny’s signature line is short in numbers compared to the Jordan line but it seems like every model, and nearly every colorway finds success from the Foamposite models to the recent 1/2 Cent hybrid model.

Next month, on January 14th Nike will release a new colorway of the classic Nike Air Max Penny. While the original colorway in Black, White and Varsity Royal of the first Penny signature to carry his name will retro in the spring, this colorway will pay tribute to the second team that Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway played with in his career. The Air Max Penny I receives a Black and Club Purple color combo with hints of Bright Mandarin. The combination will likely give visions of no-look passes and high-flying dunks for fans of Penny Hardaway and although his career on the court may have been cut short due to injuries, there isn’t anything that could take away from his legacy in the sneaker culture.

Available January 14th at Eastbay.
