Social Status Nike Air Max Penny 1 Black Desert Sand

After debuting his third installment with Jordan Brand in A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 2, James Whitner is shifting his efforts to his initiatives with Social Status to officially announce his next Nike Air Max Penny 1 collab.

Official details have yet to surface, but we do know that there will be two colorways in the capsule: the “Black” makeup and the “Desert Sand” iteration. The initial campaign footage is set in a classroom setting, and when Social Status announced the kicks, it captioned the message “See you at Recess.” There’s an overt nod to school-related initiatives here and while we don’t yet know the exact story behind these, there are some details about the shoes that can help us interpret their purpose. For example, the shoes are packed with interchangeable Swooshes designed to represent various sports such as baseball, basketball, tennis and more, which can potentially emphasize the importance of being active. Additionally, the insoles and shoeboxes are outfitted with chalkboard-inspired text, which likely speaks to the importance of getting your education, but that’s yet to be confirmed.

Take a closer look at the shoes here and expect Social Status to reveal more details soon.
