There are countless “what could’ve been” stories that get told about professional star-athletes who never made it big, with injuries often playing the pivotal re-director of career paths from glory to afterthought. Penny Hardaway is undoubtedly one of the major names in that category, but thanks to Nike’s ability to keep the Penny name alive, the former Orlando superstar is enjoying a level of stardom in the sneaker game rivaled by Michael Jordan and Nike Basketball’s current Big Three hoop athletes. Nevermind the Foamposites – the Penny V is the true ‘next chapter’ of the Nike x Penny saga, and with the classic ‘Orlando’ serving as the anchor to the fifth signature shoe, it’s clear that Nike has plan of keeping the Penny name alive for years to come. This Holiday 2012 release is one of the most anticipated of the year, so we’ll keep you updated as the Penny V updates roll through, but cop ‘em early if you’d like by visiting the auction from thelast60 on eBay.
