Social Status Nike Air Max Penny 1 Recess Photos

James Whitner and his team at The Whitaker make a point of giving each of their sneaker collaborations their full attention to ensure that every element of the rollout, from campaign imagery to shorts to storytelling, is on point. And next on their agenda is social status x Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Recess” Collection – a two-part sneaker pack that highlights the important lessons young people can learn both in the classroom and on the playground.

There are plenty of design details on the ‘Black’ and ‘Desert Sand’ colorways included in this build – which is actually the first ever collaboration with Penny Hardaway’s signature model. The first iteration is an overt nod to the OG “Orlando” colorway while the second is a neutral offering that retains a grayscale pattern. Both pairs feature Velcro-backed Swooshes to allow you to swap out the additional sport-inspired Swoosh logos that come with the kicks. Additionally, the insoles and shoeboxes are adorned with chalkboard-inspired branding as well as the phrase “A swift brown fox leaps over the lazy dog” – one of the most notable pangrams of the English language.

Check out an exclusive preview of the bundle above, and note that Social Status is officially dropping them on July 15 at 11:00 a.m. EDT for $190 USD each.

Elsewhere in the shoes, official images of the Nike LeBron 2 “USA” have appeared.
