There’s never a bad time to bring back Anfernee Hardaway‘s original signature silhouette — the Nike Air Max Penny 1. Hardaway, the newly appointed head coach at the University of Memphis — and if there’s any justice in this world will see his team will lace up pairs of his signature Nike collection — is likely on the recruiting trail for next year already. And it’s expected that his Memphis Tigers will be really good, really fast.
But even before that has the potential to take place next season and thereafter, the Air Max Penny 1 pays tribute to Lil’ Penny with a new release. The pint-sized Penny that masterfully donned ads and commercials in the ’90s gets a shoutout with this upcoming royal, white and red colorway. Lil’ Penny’s “Pros” uniform is referenced at the shoe’s heel alongside his ½ jersey number.
This Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Lil’ Penny” edition is set to release on June 30.
