Nike Air Penny V

nike air penny v 1 Nike Air Penny V

It’s rather interesting to know that Nike’s most popular signature athlete of the 1990′s had just four signature shoes (and one unofficial sig – the Air Foamposite One). It’s true that the Air Penny volumes are rather short-lived, but it’s safe to say that the brief account is one of the most celebrated of all-time. With the massive success of the Foamposite as well as the first two Air Penny models, it can leave us wondering the potential of a longer legacy of Air Pennys. In what some might perceive as an unprecedented move, Nike Basketball is poised to introduced the fifth Air Penny signature – the Nike Air Penny V; this first clear look at the recently trending topic reveals quite a number of familiar design cues from the Penny line and post-Penny productions, like the rounded outsole and ridged midsole.

It’s almost as if the design co. picked up right where they left off, which is probably why the Air Penny V looks so darn familiar. What many may not realize is that there was in fact a fifth Air Penny shoe that, at the outset, was intended to continue the Air Penny line, but it never bore the name – that shoe is none other than the Nike Air 3 LE, which is commonly known as one of Kevin Garnett’s signature shoes. Check out the complete shot after the jump and let the discussion on the upcoming Nike Air Penny V begin! via flight403 on NT

This is what the "hype" does. It gives Nike the idea that we'll buy anything now smh

What a way to break the momentum of the penny line. It's just too plain for a comeback shoe. More like a cheaper version of the Lebron 9s. Nike just wasted a perfect opportunity with these shoes.

They look like a good balling shoe. And I bet after better pics and a couple nice colorways everyone will be all over these.

In The minority here I guess because I like these , look like a direct continuation of the penny line from his era, for that the designer(S) of these deserve kudos , interested in the price tag but would def pick these up

Ive come to associate the foamposite material with the Air Penny line. Im not diggin it, maybe if i seen it in person. I just hope they dont put a $200+ price tag like all the other ones. Otherwise this at 140 I would cop

What a joke. Nice try, NIKE. If you wanted to milk it, you should have done so a couple of decades ago.
