Among the most excruciating “What if?” Possibilities in NBA history go only to Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway, the Memphis star who shot to fame alongside Shaquille O’Neal in Orlando. Penny had the grips of a point guard and the physique of a small forward in the body of a shooting guard, and after reaching the NBA Finals in just his second season, the future was clearly at stake. .
Unfortunately, his career was derailed by injury as the Penny era only lasted a few years. Yet his fame was undeniable. Although he hasn’t achieved All-Star status since 1998, Penny’s legend has continued thanks to the popularity of his Nike shoes, mostly behind the Air Foamposite One and Air Max Penny. The latter is making a thoughtful return in 2022, with collaborations with Social Status and a number of new colorways hitting store shelves, but all eyes are on the OG’ Orlando mix of black, regal and white.
The Nike Air Max Penny “Orlando” is set to officially launch at Nike SNKRS and select retailers for an MSRP of $170 ($140 for grade school sizes); check out the list of upcoming stores and enter as many of the draws as you can, as these will likely go quickly.
