words_Brandon Richard Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway recently made sports headlines when he announced his intentions to return to the NBA. Penny's recent revelation was sparked by his desire to be part of the "Miami Thrice" super-team in South Beach. Playing for the Heat wouldn't be new territory for Penny. He made the team back in 2007, before being waived after just 16 games. However, it was Penny's stint with the cross-state rival Orlando Magic that made him one of the most beloved ballers of his time. While Penny may be trying to make a comeback in Miami, his first Orlando-themed Air Penny sneaker is ready to make a return as well. The "Orlando" Air Penny retro is executed the way you'd expect. Black nubuck works the midfoot, toebox, and heel, while white fills in the side panels and wraps around the toe. Varsity royal accents are spotted on the inner liner, heel tab, and various branding points throughout. Expect these to turn up in the spring of 2011.
