Two sides of the coin: The Air Force 1 Penny
There are two sides to every story, including the Air Force 1 Penny. As Nike looks to the past for inspiration, the brand is releasing a duo of sneakers with the iconic traits of Penny Hardaway's signature shoe.
First up is a pair of sneakers that combines the Air Force 1 Low CMFT silhouette with the original Air Penny 1 Black/Royal colorway, a fusion that works in perfect harmony. With a soft black nubuck base, eye-catching contrast stitching, pinstriped tongue, translucent outsole and of course, the traditional wavy foam side panels, these kicks would definitely make Hardaway proud.
If you're looking for something a little less dramatic, the Air Force 1 Low '07 Pennys are as fresh as it gets while still looking understated. The white, varsity royal and black color palette brings to mind the jerseys of the Orlando Magic, while the branding details include a lightning-like design that recalls the OG. The icy blue outsole, glossy marbled side Swoosh and two-tone piping complete the '95 throwback.
