The iconic silhouette has last seen the shelves since its final release in 1996, but according to an Instagram post by BubbleKoppe, the classic pair will be joining the “Away” colorway launch next year. Penny Hardaway took to the court in the fresh white design during the 1995-1996 NBA season where he played for the Orlando Magic and was selected for the NBA All-Star team along with Shaquille O’Neal.
Using a half-bootie frame, the shoe features details in royal blue with black and gray pinstripes embellishing the tongue as a nod to the franchise while a combination of white leather and nylon outfits the uppers. A blue jeweled Swoosh hits the laterals as the Penny logo seals the heel. Housed within a white midsole and rubber outsole, a Zoom Air unit peeps out from the heel for an extra bounce factor which used to be known as Tensile Air.
Further details of Nike’s Air Max Penny 1 “Home” have yet to be released.
