The Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Orlando” is Coming BackPublished:
August 08, 2022
‘90s hoops heads have long awaited the return of the original “Orlando” Nike Air Max Penny 1. The Magic-themed colorway was initially launched in 1995 – one year after Penny Hardaway’s inaugural season in the Association – and last hit shelves in 2011.
Luckily, fans of the model won’t have to wait much longer, as it is set to return soon in all its OG glory.
In terms of materials, the sneaker utilizes black nubuck, which covers the majority of the upper. It is adorned with contrast stitching and Hardaway’s signature “1 Cent” logo at the heels.
The foam midsoles are done in a split black-and-white fashion, with the latter color creeping up onto the lateral side panel. A patterned jewel-Swoosh done in “Varsity Royal” is laid atop the white foam for added contrast. The black portion of the midsole is visible on the medial side of the shoe, as well as on the heels, where it envelops a visible Max Air unit.
Additional details include a ghillie lacing system, inverted Swoosh embroidery at the tongues, and striped heel and tongue tabs.
The Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Orlando” will be available at select DTLR stores only on August 11th for a retail price of $170.
