Taking it back to 1997, Nike Sportswear introduces the brand new Lil Penny Posite with its “Shooting Stars” pack for NBA legend Penny Hardaway. Joined by the previously player-exclusive “Shooting Stars” Foamposites that Hardaway laced up for the second half of the 2012 Celebrity All-Star Game in Orlando, the Lil Penny Posite takes inspiration from the Lil Penny campaigns of the ’90s for a brand new silhouette. Incorporating elements of the Zoom Rookie LWP and the Air Up, Marc Dolce‘s symbolic follow-up to 2009’s 1/2 Cent hybrid boasts a decoupled Foamposite upper with a full-length Lunar midsole, Zoom Air cushioning in the heel, reflective accents, and vintage “Flight” and “1 Cent” insignia. Both shoes come packaged in a specially-designed box that features a glossy tonal all-over graphic and a statement across the inner flap that reads “YOU GUYS REMIND ME OF MY SHOE CLOSET… I GOT 2 PENNIES AND A BUNCH OF LOAFERS!”
NSW’s “Shooting Stars” pack will be available in limited quantities from Nike.com and select retailers beginning May 17.
