It’s rather impressive that the Air Penny continues to outwork Nike’s contemporary signature models with an astounding four signature releases in 2012 (Air Foamposite One, Zoom Rookie, Air Penny II, and Air Penny V). Arriving at retailers this June is the Nike Air Penny II in Soar/Cyber-White-Black, previewed in mid-January as a set of Quickstrike releases; Sneaker News now brings you an exclusive first look at this June 2012 drop, which features the familiar ‘Sprite’ ensemble on the classic Air Penny II model. Spotted at an exclusive event for the premiere of MTV2’s Hip Hop Squares (catch the show tomorrow evening at 11 PM on MTV2), this June release has the gumption to compete with the month’s other big-ticket items – especially if you’re an Air Penny fan. We’ll also keep you updated on the second high-energy Air Penny II colorway slated to drop alongside the Soar/Cyber release (which was alluded during the initial preview). You can find this upcoming Air Penny II release as well as a slew of other upcoming high-profile releases at Footaction in June, soon so check out the gallery of images below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates.

i love the penny iii and this cw is dope!!! might cop em!!! like these better than the penny5 or the rookie (this shoe is a tad heavy)
Not even on the radar for me personally. Too many other retro kicks to choose from for me but they are ok I guess nothing more nothing less
$155 is a lil steep especially for a color way never worn by the player or has any history, but nice looking shoe. Sprite Lebron or Photo Blue Griff's inspiration?
155? i copped some from flightclub a year ago for like 125, but i guess the tax on em was bout the same but damn 155?
These might make me less pissed I missed out on the Griffey I Max in this colorway. Can somebody say SPRITES?
Ohhh snap! The uppers/mudgaurds are foam! Sweeeeet. That should look even better in person. No cop for me tho
Nike loves this Soar/Cyber colorway. I wish I knew these were dropping before I purchased the Nomo's in this colorway
