Last season, the Lil Penny Posite brought a pint-sized legend back to life. This season, the legend continues to grow with a new colorway, inspired by LP’s brief but beautiful stay in Miami.
The Lil Penny Posite 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 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 the block, or at a beach, near you this summer — and this time, he’ll have his own sneaker rotation to choose from.
