Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Orlando” Release Info

The Nike Air Max Penny 1 makes a long-awaited return this year after first releasing in 1995 and last dropping in 2011. Nike’s classic silhouette was the first signature shoe of Orlando Magic Hooper classic Penny Hardaway. In the era of Michael Jordan, the shoe again paved the way for timeless footwear that put Nike at the forefront of design.

Along with its shoe, the Air Max Penny features two unique elements including the giant jewel magnified Swoosh, as well as the pricey heel unit. In the two decades leading up to the 2022 re-release, the shoe has appeared in various colorways. This time around, the shoe pays homage to Orland in a royal black, white and varsity color scheme. The physical appearance of the shoe hasn’t changed much since the original version. The shoe sees a black base that features the large white Phylon “wing” midsole and jewel blue Swoosh for an added dose of culture. The royal blue Swoosh is also embroidered on the tongue while the 1 Cent logo on the heel completes the design. The shoe sits on a black Air Max cushioned heel.

The Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Orlando” will arrive at select retailers and on Nike for $170 USD in the coming months.

In case you missed it, the Jordany System.23 Clog arrives in “pink.”
