After months of speculation, the rumors of a second Penny Pack from Nike are now confirmed.
A follow-up to the 2014 'Shooting Stars' Pack, this two-shoe collection once again features a Foamposite One packaged alongside an all-new silhouette. In place of the Lil' Penny Posite is the latest signature shoe from the Penny line, the Nike Zoom Penny 6. Previewed on the feet of Penny, the Penny 6 is a hybrid of sorts, featuring iconic elements from signature shoes past.
The Foamposite One comes in the infamous 'Sharpie' version, originally a PE of the OG royal blue colorway that had to be blacked out in some places to fit in with the NBA's strict uniform policy of the time. Both pairs are packaged in a special box, just like the 'Shooting Stars' Pack, with custom graphics and a breakdown of each sneaker on the inside.
The sneaker release date for the limited edition commemorative Penny Pack is Saturday, July 4. They will be available at select Nike Sportswear retailers worldwide with a price tag of $500.
