One of the biggest headlines of yesterday’s news was the first look at the Nike Air Penny V – the alleged fifth signature sneaker of the Air Penny line that was discontinued after the Air Penny IV (until the revelation of the Air 1/2 Cent in 2009). Many have praised the shoe for its 90’s-style design motifs, as it opts for wavy lines and bulbous-y midsoles rather than the jagged, tech look of the Hyperdunk, Kobe, and other Eric Avar classics. This new side-profile shot of the Nike Air Penny V reveals once more the ribbed midsole with what appears to be a newly-designed visible Max Air unit, a pinstriped tongue, and what appears to be a lightweight Hyperfuse-like material on the upper. It’s clear that the Air Penny V was designed in mind of a true continuation of the Air Penny legacy rather than as a contemporary 2012+ shoe, bringing a level of old-school ideas to Nike’s current push of technology and hgh-performance engineering.

They look like good basketball shoes but i dnt like em, b/c they are just using penny name to prob up the prcie and just sell shoes but they look good

Kinda feel these they do have a 90's feel to it maybe hat's the reason.

I hate foamposites; they r even uglier with an outer space background all over them...but I would mess wit these for the right price.

When I look at this angle, the shoe is not as bad as it could have been. But that's not saying I'm head over heels about it either. It reminds me too much of the Penny 2, these are just a bit less attractive.

do you all not get it? Nike had to reup penny and pay him a ton of loot because he was threatening them over the proliferation of the foams and use of his name and symbol icon. this is nike, they monetize everything..............

these leaked pictures are nike trolling for feedback on the design so here you go. I think it looks pretty good except for the swoosh on the back. either make it a large protruding swoosh like on the foam pros or get rid of it all together. your welcome

They're not foams or even foam-type, so the haters come out... Real talk, the most of y'all that are humping foams hard were not doing so when the Foamposite first released. This shoe has a nice mix of old and new elements as well as fabrication. Stop hating.

These look dope as hell. When Wale rocks the Glow In The Dark "Orlando Nights" joints, everyone will magically change their opinion on them . . .

Dear Penny, Please do not tarnish your great reputation with these piece of junk. Your foams are praised to the highest. This is SH*T!!! Ask Nike to dissociate your name from this. You still have time to call Phil Knight to plead your case. Better yet, let them use Charles Barkley's name on this.

The sick 90's colors is there but the design isn't. If they could tweak them some, a little more flash, give them some character. Im 70/30 yes on them for now.

Somebody should be fired for making those ugly a** shoes. They look like a 3rd hybrid instead of something new. Penny should be pissed.

Either the pictures have all been terrible so far, or the shoe is really oddly shaped.

This pic makes the shoes look marginally better, but I'm still not bowled over. It may have to grow on me before I cop - if I cop that is.
