Nike Air Penny V “Highlighter”, Lil’ Penny in a shoe

There’s a storm of new releases coming out tomorrow morning and one of the most coveted pair of the lot has to be the Nike Air Penny V “Highlighter”. Nearly a year has passed since the release of the last Penny V, “The Invisibility Cloak”, and tempers are running high as sneaker enthusiasts wait for the next Pennies. Well, as the heel says “The Storm is Over”, so read up on the shoe in the meantime.

penny_ubiq-blog_02Despite the short four seasons he played as a top-level player, Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway remains as an icon to, both, the basketball world and the sneaker community. He was showcased as a premier Nike athlete, right behind Michael Jordan, and featured with Lil’ Penny, a small puppet voiced by comedian Chris Rock. Lil’ Penny had a loud persona that complemented Penny’s laid back, modest disposition. Nike continues to honor Penny with several lines of sneakers that loyal fans and ballers continue to rave over. The first Penny V dropped about this time last year, as a blend of the classic Air Penny heritage with today’s technology and design. This Nike Air Penny V Highlighter is the newest addition to his legacy. Featuring the Nike’s signature highlighter neon green Volt upper with black accenting the tongue, inner lining, pull-tab, Swoosh logo, and trim. The black is also found working its way throughout the shoe in a splatter pattern accentuating the entire design. A white foam wing also stretches from the back and all across the middle of the shoe. To top it all off, the sole is a translucent Volt neon. There’s no way these shoes will go unnoticed on your feet because they’re screaming for the attention. So give these Pennies lots of love and maybe they’ll lend you their wings to make that dunk or fly for that alley-oop.

Available at 10AM tomorrow morning, where the line of impatient sneakerheads will lead you right to UBIQ Walnut. Come early before they sell out!
