You can’t stop him. You won’t stop him. The ½ man behind the man, Lil Penny, is back with three new designs of his signature model, the Lil Penny Posite.

Aesthetically, the design builds upon blocks of Penny’s past, notably elements of the Air Zoom Rookie and the Nike Air Up, as a symbolic follow up to the Nike Air ½ Cent. A decoupled Posite upper retains iconic styling while affording more flexibility, a change of pace from Posites of the past.
Featuring a full-length Nike Lunar midsole and Zoom cushioning in the heel, the Lil Penny Posite also employs the latest cushioning technologies, from the bottom up. Molded wings on the shoe’s quarter add a modern sensibility while vintage Flight and 1 Cent insignia keep the design true to its lineage. The season may be winding down, but as the saying goes, basketball never stops. Catch Lil Penny on a block near you this summer — and this time, he’ll have his own sneaker rotation to choose from. Explore the three new designs below:

Wolf Grey/Wolf Grey-Hyper Pink
June 7, 2014

More than the game, fame, and acclaim, Lil Penny wanted one thing: Love. The ½ Cent-ed legend was a baller by association but a lover from the beginning. Touches of Hyper Pink pay homage to LP’s love-first-ask-questions-later nature while a predominantly Wolf Grey upper keeps the design classically cool.

Black/Black-Reflective Silver-Hyper Jade

Though his love for a certain model-esque beauty is no secret, Lil Penny never strayed away from the nightlife. As such, LP had to get fresh with a pair designed specifically for those late nights that turn into early mornings. Featuring a black reflective upper and a glow-in-the-dark outsole, being seen in any light is the mission. And it’s safe to say: Mission accomplished.

White/Reflective Silver-Black-Chilling Red
June 7, 2014

Just like his big brother, Lil Penny was once a basketball standout. With a pearlized white upper and a carbon fiber wing, the second of three new designs draws inspiration from LP’s prep days in Memphis, Tennessee. Unfortunately for lil’ bro, his hoops aspirations came to a halt in high school, due to his lack of height, not heart.
