Back when the Nike Air Max Penny was first released in the mid-90′s, the Air Way Up was created as a less-expensive option for those who wanted that signature shoe appeal but didn’t want to fork over the extra pennies. This unofficially Air Penny take-down model was a rather popular choice in the NBA, as notable all-stars like Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, Toni Kukoc, and Jason Kidd went with the Air Way Up in the ’95-’96 season. This Red/White colorway (a near perfect ‘reverse’ of the OG White/Red and shockingly similar to the PE we saw in Penny’s personal collection) is a Sample for the 2013 cycle of Retro releases, and considering we’ve already seen several colorways hit the Sneaker News front page, a release might be coming sooner than you think. A few extra angles are right below, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for release updates.
