Official Images Of The Nike Air Penny 3 “Eggplant”

First believed to have been scheduled for an October 22nd launch, the Nike Air Penny 3 “Eggplant” has yet to see the widespread retro treatment of some of its Nike Basketball counterparts from the 1990s. Nevertheless, its recent emergence in official images suggests a release date will occur soon.

If the fanfare that’s been caused by the reissuing of the “Anthracite” Foamposite, as well as rumors that the Air Max CB 94 is retroing, is indicative of anything, it’s that nostalgia for pairs of yesteryear is alive and well. Thus, this colorway of Penny Hardaway’s third signature sneaker with the Swoosh will have no trouble selling out, especially among enthusiasts whose pairs from 2010 either show immense wear or have long been retired. The “Eggplant/White/Black” color trifecta that covers the forthcoming pair keeps its original placement, although its shades may differ from vintage pairs when held in-hand. Nevertheless, branding throughout the sneaker, as well as contour-patterned outsole, perfectly capture an era in Nike history.

An official Nike.com release date is still unknown, but this Air Penny 3 is likely to launch before November ends. In any case, enjoy official images of the pair ahead.

For more retro options from the Swoosh, the Air Griffey Max 1 “Freshwater” is set to return in 2021 for its 25th Anniversary.
