For those who weren’t around during the 90s, it’s difficult to do justice to Penny Hardaway’s rising star power. During the season and a half of Michael Jordan’s first retirement, the NBA, from a marketing perspective, hit a serious snag. The 1993-94 slugfest finals between the Knicks and Rockets left a lot of fans uninspired. Into this uncertain void stepped Penny Hardaway.
His little man-big man pairing with Shaq vaulted the Magic from expansion also-rans to one of the elite teams in the league. Although the 90s Magic never quite made it over the final hill, the NBA had a newly minted superstar, one who naturally had his own signature shoe.
Penny Hardaway’s signature series for Nike is one of the most successful in the company’s illustrious history. It even threatens to overshadow his impressive on-court career.
The Penny II is one of the most popular and highly regarded models in the series. Now, this 90s classic is back. The curvaceous 90s basketball silhouette and signature Zoom Air cushioning are in full effect here, sporting the same white, black, and royal blue colorway of Orlando’s magic show.
