There have been several rumors over the past year that Nike is preparing to re-release a number of signature Penny Hardaway sneakers. Initially, it was rumored that the Nike Air Penny 3 would return. This was followed by rumors of a retro Nike Air Max Penny 1. Now sources tell Complex that StÃ¼ssy will collaborate on the Nike Air Penny 2 in 2022.
There are currently no leaked images or mockups of how StÃ¼ssy’s version might look. Still, the release rumor is interesting as it would represent a step up from StÃ¼ssy’s regular collaborations with Nike. The partnership, which began in 2000 on the Air Huarache and which many consider the first suitable collaboration, has focused more on retro racing silhouettes such as the Air Max line, as well as basketball silhouettes. OG, such as the Blazer or the Dunk.
The Nike Air Penny was originally released in 1996 and has been downgraded several times since then. According to Complex sources, the sneaker is slated for release in September 2022, although that is subject to change, especially given the supply chain issues Covid has caused in recent months.
Stay tuned for updates, and in the meantime, check out our list of the best StÃ¼ssy collaborations.
