While Penny Hardaway campaigns for a roster position on the Miami Heat, he recently spent an entire day on Instagram reminding the world just how many exclusive sneakers he has. The year 2012 saw the return of his Air Penny line with a new signature silhouette, as well as new colorways of the four models that he wore during his time in the league. If that wasn’t enough, a new hybrid sneaker dropped as well, further cementing his place in Nike’s basketball sneaker history.
The creme of the crop on display features several unreleased Foamposites like an all-white pair, special NY Knicks edition designed for Spike Lee during last season’s NBA Playoffs, and the ‘Shooting Star’ pair that only Penny has been seen with at the celebrity game from this past All-Star Weekend.
Throughout the day, he went on to display other sought-after pairs of the sneakers that bear his name like the new Air Penny V, a set of the Zoom Rookie LWP combination sneaker, and a pair of Air Force Ones inspired by the Orlando Magic uniform that bears his 1Cent logo that never made it to store shelves. He even broke out a set of the Air Flight One and the entire Air Penny x Sole Collector pack from 2011. This post doesn’t even show all of what Penny posted during that day so I stuck with the ones you readers would likely want to see.
