Along with a special Nike Air Foamposite One, the upcoming “Shooting Star” Pack will feature the Nike Lil Penny Posite, inspired by the Lil Penny character from Nike‘s celebrated ad campaign from the mid-’90s. The Lil Penny Posite carries a design that draws from elements of former Penny Hardaway kicks, most notably the Air Zoom Rookie and the Nike Air Up. Details include a decoupled Posite upper accented with reflective paneling, as well as a full-length Lunar midsole and Zoom cushioning in the heel. The retro-inspired silhouette uses molded wings on the shoe’s quarter to add a modern sensibility, while vintage Flight and 1 Cent insignia represent a callback to the Nike Penny lineage. Finally, the black and blue color scheme pays tribute to the Orlando Magic, where Hardaway started his NBA career. Check out detailed looks below, and expect the Nike Shooting Star Pack to hit stores and online starting May 17th.
