Consisting of the Air Foamposite One and the Lil Penny Posite, the Shooting Stars Pack brings a Nike throwback to the forefront, with a new sidekick. Inspired by the ½ man behind the man, the Lil Penny Posite reflects LP’s knee-high swagger and off-court attitude. Inspiration also includes the man himself, Anfernee Hardaway, as well as the city he spent much of his starry career, Orlando, Fla. Both shoes come packaged in one specially designed box, featuring a tonal gloss all-over print graphic and a bold question splattered across the inner-flap, reading: YOU GUYS REMIND ME OF MY SHOE CLOSET. I GOT TWO PENNYS AND A BUNCH OF LOAFERS. For more info on the debut of the Lil Penny Posite see below, and if you’re interested in copping the pack this weekend please read our release details.

Nike Air Foamposite One
Nike Lil Penny Posite
Aesthetically, the design builds upon blocks of Penny’s past, notably including 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, with reflective detailing, retains iconic styling while affording you more flexibility, a change of pace from Posites of the past. Featuring a full-length 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 at a court near you this summer — and this time, he won’t be rocking big brother’s hand-me-downs.
