Before the eggplant emoji, the purple hue was utilized across an array of performance models that not only captivated the eye but had a futuristic feeling to it. In the 2010s, when basketball footwear reached a new echelon, the colorway was a fan-favorite. Years later, the iridescent-like color is coming back on a classic.
The upcoming Nike Air Penny 3 “Eggplant” brings back the colorway as it’s paired with a white and black upper. For a handful of months now, Nike has been showing the Penny line its well-deserved flowers. The latest iteration is no different.
Take a look at the pair below as we await its return. Expect the Penny 3 “Eggplant” to release on Nike.com and select retailers towards the end of October. Keep it locked at Nice Kicks for everything Nike.
