Nike Air Max Penny Black Metallic Silver Varsity Royal DN2487-002

It didn’t take long for Penny Hardaway, the 3rd overall pick in the 1993 NBA Draft, to cement her status as a league superstar. The Orlando Magic guard broke convention to be such a solid ball handler with his 6’7″ frame, but he stood out with silky smooth play and representing the next generation of NBA dominators thanks to his pairing with another guy named Shaquille O’Neal.

Penny was named to four consecutive All-Star Teams starting in his sophomore season, showing up in that infamous 1996 San Antonio show that saw the return of Michael Jordan. Star-studded with players and shoes, the 1996 All-Star Game is fondly remembered for the Air Jordan 11 “Columbia” and the Reebok Shaqnosis, but Hardaway’s best-selling Air Max Penny 1 stole some of the spotlight for its bold debut in a predominantly black colourway.

Although the shoes were released in 2014, this black/metallic silver/varsity royal colorway is part of Nike’s current plans for the retro Air Max Penny 1; our sources point to a November 2022 release, but with continued delays, we’ll wait to see if that information holds.
