Penny Hardaway’s impression in today’s sneaker game is about to get a bit deeper with this Holiday’s debut of the Nike Air Penny V – his fifth signature shoe and first post-career signature basketball model. Borrowing key details from past models and combining them with both new-age and revised comfort technology, the Nike Air Penny V captures that on-court performance vibe while equally sharing a street-sensible style. Simply put, these will go hard on the court, and harder with a pair of jeans. Here we have a first look at an upcoming New Green/Safety Orange-White colorway that is set to hit stores this December; it’s got a Miami-like vibe with the Dolphins-esque colorway (anything Miami these days seems to be an utter hit), although the direct tie-in of this colorway is yet to be revealed. Now that we’ve got another good look at the Air Penny V, what are your thoughts? Photo: JordanPP30 on NT
Nike Air Penny V
New Green/Safety Orange-White
color is CRAZY!! feel in love with the penny 2's in white/blue def in love with these right now...Looks like a great summer sneaker, probably put them on ice til summer 2013
Leave it up to hating ass dudes, claiming they're sneaker heads to hate on someone else's opinion. Too every one thinking its heat, cop for that reason alone, for those hating on that opinion,pray that your favorite celebrity won't be caught rocking me cause of they do, we all know you'll be the first one in line. Now onto the shoes, I love this Miami cw so it's a cop for me, and the shoes itself have an original 90's vibe to me and I love that about em.
oh and how do you dudes think 150 is a good price???? these are worth more like 105, if that. THEY SUCK BALLS!lol hypebeast delight!!
Penny about to ruin his sneaker legacy these are ugly...and I'm a UM fan so the orange & green don't bother me but the shoe itself is horrid...might as well drop the Shooting Star Foams #allwhiteeverything
Hideous, why are we bringing back Penny line for? Nike loves capitalizing on that hype lol I ain't mad at you
They are nice but I think they are little too bulky to think Penny in his prime would have worn them. Kind of remind me of a stripped down Lebron. But They are still nice for the 150. Haven't seen that price in a while.
wow this is great guy hasnt played in forever n nike still backing him thats dope n the kicks go hard too
And one day before I post this, who else but Wale to show up wearing these sneakers. Now go onto that page and look at the comments. Exactly my point, everyone is gonna be lining up for these. Now I'm forced to cop early and pay over retail at my local shoe spot. Props to Wale, but eff the followers on some real shit. And btw its "pray that your favorite celebrity won't be caught wearing em"
I agree with you 100%, Nike should just stick with the OG Versions, they might of gotten away with the 1/2 Cents and the Zoom Rookies but trying to continue the Penny Line with new models is a major FAIL IMO...
the Foams very pretty bulky for their time. I like these though. Won't get this colorway ONLY because I'm waiting on the Marino's to drop
this shoe is not hot one bit...but ppl will be all over it because #1 its Penny and #2 maybe one of the many will actually like it
Agree on the price. Nice colorway. Worth Copping? IDK. But im not jumping out the window for these. Will like to see 360 View
you keep correcting people and make yourself look stupid. how about actually say something about the article instead of just sitting there and trying to look smart. big infinite? more like big dueche . ok smart guy?
man are u kidding me? these shoes are hot! i like how it has that classiclook but the new tecnology very fresh
