Nike will continue to retro the Air Max Penny 1 into 2023, with a special colorway inspired by Penny Hardaway’s Lester Middle School in Memphis, according to Brendan Dunne of Complex.
In addition to playing there, Hardaway coached the Lester Lions basketball team in the 2010s before taking the Memphis job.
While this Nike Air Max Penny 1 draws inspiration from the school’s colors, it will not be an actual collaboration with the school. No leaked photos have surfaced, but the shoe will look similar to the OG “Black/Royal” release, with the school’s Yellow taking place of Orlando’s Royal Blue.
