Penny Hardaway won Olympic gold with Dream Team II at the 1996 Atlanta Games, but we haven’t seen any of his Nike Sportswear retro and hybrid series yet connected with this summer’s USAB blowout. Instead, NSW’s going to be emphasizing Penny in the fourth quarter of 2012 along with one of his teammates from the XXVI Olympiad. Moving left to right in the image above, we see our first glimpse of the new Nike Air Penny V that seeks to continue Anfernee’s legacy while introducing some new twists. You can also count on a copper Zoom Rookie LWP as well as the Air Flight 1 joining a couple of older looking designs that seem inspired by David Robinson‘s Air Force 180 High (though they seem to lack an inflation system of any sort), perhaps similar to the PR1 we saw imitating the classic Air Pressure. Click through to see more, let us know which makes you most excited and stick with Sneaker News for each pair’s release info. via HC
its about damn time theyre bringing the command forces back but they better have that pump on them when i cop
I hope these are the Command Force Pumps,,,because the pump was on the side and the release button was directly on the back unlike the 180 Pumps that had both on the side! Regardless, i had them in 8th grade and will def try to grab a pair this year!! No hypebeast here, just glad Nike releasing alot of the shit i had in grade and highschool!!
if i'm not mistaken there were 2 nike pumps, both worn by d. robinson. the command force hi, and the air force 180 hi. this looks like a mashup between the 2, only it looks like the pump may not be present. the tongue looks like it's from the command force hi because the word "force" is larger. also the air force 180 hi's said "180" above the word force in raised leather. the midsole, or the portion of it that is visible anyways, appears to be from the air for 180 hi.
me lookin at the ebay section does anyone know if those shoes (nike flight one) might re-release or restock.and if so anyone know where i can get a pair
I like the Command Forces, can't wait to see what the V's are gonna look like this is the second pic i've seen.
I heard EWING will also be release around summer...... Gosh, this summer is going to be the hottest summer ever!
the black flight one is a must for me..i have the orlando..had the all black joints frosh year for ball. i will get those bad boys..great shoe!
Pumped about those flight ones, that penny v looks promising but they don't really show any good angles, might try to Google it..
It seems likeNike is really pushing pennys to the jordan level. I can dig. but js or still better in my opinion. Im feeling alot of the pennys. but they are being hype up too much. oh yeah those 180s go hard.
If reebok can make pump retros then why cant Nike make proper command force retos? Won't turn enough profit? They're just adding the 180 to the end so they can bump them up to air max pricing
those Air Command Forces are def. mine and also the black Filght 1's, Michael Jordan wore them in game against the magic in the 1995 playoffs, so that makes them a must have!!!!
Those white forces are sick!!! I remember selling those at footlocker when I worked there in high school!! I'll def grab those.
What is it going to take to get a retro of the Penny Olympic Flight 96's with his Olympic # 6 on the back? I love the Olympic pack this year but the Pippen More Uptempo's released a couple of years ago. I loved them enough to get them but those Flight 96's have never been retroed...BRING EM BACK!
