Penny Hardaway illustrated by Korean artist Min-suk KIM aka Kwang33.
The seasons Penny Hardaway spent in the desert never amounted to a title, but it did eventually lead to the signing of Steve Nash and these awesome Nike Air Penny V Suns colorway kicks. Much like the career of the man himself, the Air Penny line has had a resurgence over the last few years and as a result we get these bad boys.
With the weekend’s festivities returning to Orlando for the first time since 1992. Nike celebrates the legacy of Penny Hardaway, arguably the most popular player in the history of pro basketball in Orlando. Made popular in the mid-90’s, the Nike Flight One makes a comeback in two colorways, with one featuring glow-in-the-dark details on the sole and midsole spheres.
Inspired by central Florida’s association with space exploration. The Nike Foamposite One, showcasing an out-of-this-world galactic print upper, includes a Polyurethane midsole and a Nike Zoom unit in heel for low-profile, responsive cushioning. Made popular in its debut on the college hardwood in 1998, the Foamposite breaks the mold of conventional footwear design.
The Orlando Magic made their first ever NBA Finals appearance in 1995. Which signified the arrival of Penny Hardaway, Nick Anderson, Dennis Scott, Horace Grant and Shaquille O’Neal to the bigtime. Even though they eventually went down in flames to the Houston Rockets in four games (blame Nick), that team forever became one of the favorites from the 90′s.
As a salute to the team that even Mickey Mouse had to compete with, this tee from UNDRCRWN is like making four consecutive free throws in the closing seconds of Game 1 to take a commanding lead of the series.
The much-anticipated Cool Kids “When Fish Ride Bicycles” album drops July 12. On that sure to be good album, is the “Penny Hardaway” track featuring Ghostface Killah. Yes, this is just a sneaky way to get more Cool Kids music on my blog.
Guilty as charged.
