Release Date: November 20th, 2020Colorway: BLACK/BLACK-VARSITY ROYAL
The Anfrenee “Penny” Hardaway signature line from Nike was one of the best signature sneaker lines released by Nike during the 90s for its edgy designs and comfort amongst sneaker heads. One of the more popular models was the Nike Air Penny III, originally released in 1997 and again in 2009 this retro makes its return for the third time in the exact same color way and details as the original. The upper of the sneaker consists of tumbled black leather and a synthetic Foamposite shell on the lateral side of the sneaker which is double lasted for added durability. The padded ankle collar features a black suede overlay with a 1 CENT logo underneath on the lateral side next to an embroidered Nike Swoosh. The inside of the sneaker contains a neoprene mesh bootie to help provide a snug but very breathable fit. The top of the tongue has a pull loop that combines with a pull loop in the back for quick access. Along the tongue is a traditional lacing system with rope laces and three bungee straps for a very secure feel when on the court. The heel consists of a foam midsole with an Air-Max unit above the rubber outsole and Zoom Air unit in the front. The toe box has small perforations for breathability making the Penny III a sneaker suitable for all five positions played on any basketball court.
