This Nike Air Max Penny 1 Honors Hardaway’s Days with the Miami Heat

Another new colorway of the Nike Air Max Penny 1 has hit retailers.

Nike Air Max Penny 1 Performance Review

Paying tribute to Penny’s days as a member of the Miami Heat, this version of the shoe features a color scheme that is familiar to fans of the Penny line.

While we wish this was the return of the Nike Air Max Penny 1 ‘Chicago’, this version looks very similar while still setting itself apart. Sporting leather panels in addition to the nubuck overlays typically seen on the Penny 1, the color blocking is very similar to the old classic ‘Chicago’ edition. The pin-striped Swoosh and 1 Cent logo with flames make clear where the inspiration for this pair came from.

You can find the Nike Air Max Penny 1 ‘Miami Heat’ available now at for $160.

  1. I wish they would make some pair penny protros. I actually remember the originals being incredibly comfortable but so far the retros have all been brutal to play in. Nike can do a lot more in terms of making their older models playable. Just by using softer materials.

    1. They also make Air Max units smaller and harder than the originals, so that also makes them not playable.
