Nike Lil’ Penny Posite
Nike’s criteria for signature shoe worthiness includes a series of qualities that only a select few have possessed. Part of this exclusive fraternity is Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, and a fictional puppet known as 1/2 Cent. We first saw the Chris Rock-voiced sidekick of Penny Hardaway in the mid-1990′s and since then, Lil’ Penny has grown in popularity as part of the burgeoning Air Penny signature shoe line. Back in 2009, Nike gave the diminutive guy due props with the Air Half Cent – a hybrid of all the Penny signature models. In 2014, Lil’ Penny is getting his own unique design – one that should carry on the Air Penny line while giving sneaker enthusiasts an all new design to get excited about.
This first look at the Nike Lil’ Penny Posite reveals a number of familiar details from the Penny saga. The overall silhouette is comparable to the Zoom Rookie, while some details are directly ported from Air Penny signature models; overall, the entire package is rather distinct from the Nike Penny shoes as a whole. This colorway of Black and Bright Red is a nice follow-up to the Air Penny V “Lil Penny” colorway, while the lasered graphics on the Posite upper and interior lining should offer a nice sub-plot involving Hardaway’s pal. Check out the detailed gallery here and be sure to stay tuned to Sneaker News for release info and more updates on this new development.
@sneakernews half cents still the best penny hybrid
@sneakernews how much does it cost??
@datniggavinnie1 these are ugly lol
@sneakernews weak passing on pennies
@sneakernews whats the retail price?
@sneakernews Love Penny and most of his sig models but I'm disappointed that it looks like a Lebron...not a fan...just me...
@sneakernews wont be a cop for me
@sneakernews looks like LeBron 9 with posite.
@im_6ft_4 i like those but i cant afford a size 12
@sneakernews on the fence with these.nice design but with nike bringing do much heat this year.this will be a definitely a sales cop
@sneakernews a those are dope as hell!!!!
Nike fuckin with my show game. Now I will have to eliminate something I wanted and get these instead. Kobe 9 Masterpiece and these for Feb. I gotta cut myself off after that for the month. Ha. I need to see Orlando colorway though.
If they do not cost an arm and a leg, I will be looking forward to these. But if Nike decides to do something extraordinarily stupid, like ticketing them at over one hundred seventy five dollars, when they should be at about a buck fiddy, Nike can kiss my ass.
I like these, and a stupid price will piss me off.
@sneakernews feeling new pennys
@sneakernews omg! Nike is killing the game!
definitely see some lebron 11 influence. a lot of influence from past penny shoes too. kinda diggin it. nothing crazy but a solid sneaker.
All these cats out here in Memphis who trashed the Lebron xi are gonna cop these because its penny. (Same shoe imo) Smh Nike been slippin
These were suppose to come out last yr... Remember Seein these at sneakercon & was wondering when they were comin. Kinda a new-age Flightposite hyperposite hybrid...
They definitely favor the LeBrons a lil. Nike shave off the armor on the LBJ XIs, called them elites then added the shaved armor on some rookies and now we have these brolic rookies
And one pic per page is uncalled for
@sneakernews they just need to retro the Penny 1 like now.
@HypnotznSmile lol it's ok we can work somethin out
@DjLarry93 Bullshit I aint coppin this shit.
