Nike Lil’ Penny Posite

January 26th, 2014 by / 61

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.

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.

These are clean! Even though they look like Lebron 11 they better not cost as much

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.

I kind of wish this was a penny VI in a lil penny colorway. But dope shoe and design overall

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
