WHAT’S BETTER THAN LIL PENNY’S TWO CENTS? THREE.
You can’t stop him. You won’t stop him. The ½ man behind the man, Lil Penny, is back with three new designs of his signature model, the Lil Penny Posite.
Aesthetically, the design builds upon blocks of Penny’s past, notably elements of the Air Zoom Rookie and the Nike Air Up, as a symbolic follow up to the Nike Air ½ Cent. A decoupled Posite upper retains iconic styling while affording more flexibility, a change of pace from Posites of the past.
Featuring a full-length Nike Lunar midsole and Zoom cushioning in the heel, the Lil Penny Posite also employs the latest cushioning technologies, from the bottom up. Molded wings on the shoe’s quarter add a modern sensibility while vintage Flight and 1 Cent insignia keep the design true to its lineage. The season may be winding down, but as the saying goes, basketball never stops. Catch Lil Penny on a block near you this summer — and this time, he’ll have his own sneaker rotation to choose from.
Just like his big brother, Lil Penny was once a basketball standout. With a pearlized white upper and a carbon fiber wing, the third of three new designs draws inspiration from LP’s prep days in Memphis, Tennessee. Unfortunately for lil’ bro, his hoops aspirations came to a halt in high school, due to his lack of height, not heart.
