With the next colorway of the Air Penny V, Nike Sportswear salutes Penny Hardaway's pint-sized partner in crime, Lil' Penny.
The Lil' Penny V is predominantly decked out in Atomic Red with heritage splatter print along the collar, eyestay and midsole. Black handles trim along the sides, Swoosh branding, the inner lining and tongue, which bears a custom Half Cent logo. Lil' Penny's silhouette and 'Livin Large' adorn the heel and pull-tab. A wavy white foam midsole offers a bit of balance to the look, while a translucent red outsole wraps things up below.
This colorway was originally set to release this Friday, September 20, but according to our sources, has been pushed back to Wednesday, November 27. Retail will be $165. If any of this information changes, we'll let you know here at Sole Collector.
