Penny Hardaway’s signature collection continues to fill the retro space with more archival gems set to release soon.
The latest is the often slept on Nike Air Penny 4. Although largely considered a lesser Hardaway signature style, the Air Penny 4 is very much a gem in the Nike Basketball lineage. Taking on bold construction with top strapping and overlaying materials that effectively wiped out visible lacing, the mixed material leather, suede and woven upper were premium additions to the performance basketball space at the time. Not to mention new placement of the iconic 1 cent logo.
Orlando Magic colorways of the 1998 originated Air Penny 4 are reported to release soon. And if you remember, this was the first shoe Hardaway wore as a member of the Phoenix Suns. Thus, we’d have to imagine those colorways are next on deck.
