It didn’t take long for Penny Hardaway, the 3rd overall pick in the 1993 NBA Draft, to cement his status as a superstar of the league. The Orlando Magic guard broke convention for being such a solid ball-handler at his 6’7″ frame, but he stood out for a silky smooth game and for representing the next generation of NBA dominators thanks to his pairing with some other fella named Shaquille O’Neal.

Penny was named to four straight All-Star teams from his sophomore season on, showing out in that infamous 1996 exhibition in San Antonio that saw the return of Michael Jordan. Star-studded with players and shoes, the 1996 All-Star Game is fondly remembered for the Air Jordan 11 “Columbia” and the Reebok Shaqnosis, but Hardaway’s best-selling Air Max Penny 1 stole some of the spotlight for its daring debut in a primarily black colorway.

Although the shoes released back in 2014, this black/metallic silver/varsity royal colorway is part of Nike’s current plans for the Air Max Penny 1 retro; our sources indicate a November 2022 release, but with ongoing delays, we’ll wait and see if that information holds up.

In other Penny news, the raffles for the Social Status Air Max Penny 1 is now live.
