Earlier this week, in our Eastbay Memory Lane post, we took a look back at the original Nike Air Penny and the original Air Flight One. There is no arguing that the Nike Air Max Penny is a classic shoe, especially in the Orlando Magic-inspired colorway that Hardaway had one of his best seasons ever while wearing.
Although it originally released in 1995, the popularity of the Air Max Penny seems to have never lost a step no matter how many times over it has been retroed. Like the Royal Foamposites, or any other Penny signature model for that matter, it seems that if Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway wore it on the court during his Orlando Magic days, it became a classic. Of course, fans of Penny and his shoes will also never forget the “Lil Penny” advertising campaigns that went along with the iconic signature shoes.
You can now get the original Orlando Magic-inspired colorway of Black, Varsity Royal and White for the first time since 2007.
