Penny Hardaway left a huge mark on Nike Basketball in the mid to late 1990s and at long last we get to revisit one of the last pairs he wore before ascending to the signature pantheon. This Nike Air Up ’14 is based on the original 1994 colorway Penny wore in addition to a black/blue PE during his second pro season. These have been updated a bit with some of the double seams as seen at the eyestay having been removed from the alternating side panels. The smoother build is something akin to the Air Force Max 2013, and hopefully these two models’ similarities extend into the Air Up coming up with some brand new colorways. Stick with Sneaker News for the latest and let us know if you’ll be copping these when they drop on January 18th.

Nike Sportswear gets closer to completing the reissuance of Penny Hardaway’s NBA footwear legacy with the return of this 1994 style he shared in common with Scottie Pippen. The Nike Air Up sports a quintessentially early-mid ’90s look, this pre-Uptempo style maximizing the by then well established Air bubble look with a brash high contrast wavyness that foreshadowed the coming Air Penny line. A 20th anniversary Air Up retro will be the first, and while Pip and Penny PEs aren’t included, both Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic colorways make an appearance here today. Check out both after the jump and as always, stick with Sneaker News for the latest.
