Nike Air Max Penny 1 Orlando Will Arrive In Black And Varsity Royal Overlays
Earlier in 2022, the sneaker community recorded several fresh makeovers given to the much-loved Nike Air Max Penny 1 shoe, including “Home”, “All-Star” and “Rattan”. The collaborative range of this classic shoe with Social Status was recently unveiled, which also witnessed an impressive response from sneakerheads. Nike is now gearing up for the next style, dubbed “Orlando”, which arrives with black, royal blue and white overlays. The history of the Nike Air Max Penny 1 silhouette on the shoe brand’s website reads,
“Remember the revolution. 1987 saw the birth of the Air Max lineage, showcasing visible Air for the first time. What started as a cushioning experiment quickly became an icon on the trail and on the street. Over the years it has been redesigned and revamped, but the legacy still remains.
The product description of the upcoming shoe reads,
“Paying homage to basketball icon Penny Hardaway, the Air Max Penny is an almost 1:1 remake of the original hoops. From its jewel-embellished Swoosh to the winged piping on the sides, authentic details deliver a big retro style.The classic white and black upper is energized with a flashy touch of Varsity Royal, and Air cushioning adds the performance-level comfort you love.
While most of the uppers are covered in sleek black nubuck, hits of blue and white spice up the overall look of these pairs. Nubuck toes sit right next to the black striped tongues.
These tabs, made with premium textiles, are topped with bold black lace closures. The laces are placed horizontally on the tabs. Finishing touches are added to the tongues with vertically placed blue swooshes.
Then the white elements are combined with black nubuck in the midfoot. This white base is then embellished with a jewel blue swoosh which makes it more interesting. Also, the collars are made of black on the outside and blue on the inside. The insoles as well as the insole are made with blue textiles. These footbed areas are finished with Nike branded prints in White. Heel counters feature signature insignia and a heel tab made up of black textiles.
Rounding out the pair are Air units that can be easily viewed through the translucent midsole windows. These midsoles are united with black outsoles to complete the shoe.
Mark your calendars for the Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Orlando” colorway, which will arrive August 11, 2022. Each pair of these sneakers will retail for $170 for adult sizes and $135 for big kids. They will be sold through Nike’s SNKRS app and a few other authorized retail marketplaces.
