The Nike Air Penny retros have always been well received, so when pictures surfaced two weeks ago depicting a mashup of the Air Penny series (plus the legendary Foamposite One), anyone would have been glad to shell out the 1/2 Cent that gives this hybrid its name. The general consensus is: this is a fantastic shoe and one of the best hybrids we have seen, but sneakerheads agree that the $190 price is a tough lump to swallow. Larry Love over at Harlem’s Vault was recently given a pair as a gift (from whom, we may never know), so his Vault cohort Jon-Jon took some excellent pics showing as many details as you’d care to view. Of note is the full sized L’il Penny emblazoned on the heel. They’re waiting for you after the jump, and be sure to check back with Sneaker News while the world waits for an exact release date.
