Nike Air Penny 1 Orlando 2022
The Nike Air Penny 1 Orlando 2022 is one of the most comfortable basketball shoe retros we’ve gotten in a while. It’s worth checking out.
Colorway: Black/Varsity Royal-White
Release Date: July 2022
Penny Hardaway has one of the best signature sneaker lines of all time, and the Nike Air Penny 1 started it all. This Orlando colorway is iconic in its own right because Penny spent his prime years with the Orlando Magic, where he paired up with Shaquille O’Neal and went head-to-head with Michael Jordan. We’re happy to report that this year’s Penny 1 retro releases are the most comfortable since the original. It also sits comfortably in our Best Nike Retro Shoes list.
