Breaking news just in at Nice Kicks!
Now that you guys know the Nike Air Penny II will be coming out this fall, get ready for the completion of your Penny line to arrive shortly as well. The Nike Air Penny III will be making it’s return to stores in 2009 slated for a spring release! As of now the two original color ways have been confirmed and will make their way to retail doors.
The Nike Air Penny III was the third numbered signature shoe that he wore in the NBA not counting the infamous Nike Air Foamposite. Like the Foamposite the Penny III featured a Posite upper that had a “liquid” appearance giving the shoe that nickname. The Penny III came in just two colorways back in the day, that saw the court very few times. In the early part of the 1997-98 season, Penny suffered a career altering knee injury that has been operated on a total of five times to date. Despite being sidelined early on, Lil Penny and fans brought Penny to the All Star Game where many criticized him for coming back too soon to play on the battered knee.
Stay up to date with Nice Kicks as we will keep you posted with any additional info, release dates, or updates about the Nike Air Penny III retro. Much thanks to Chicago’s Mayor for the shots.
