The Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Orlando” Returns in 2022

Luis Torres

Nike is bringing back a hardwood classic in 2022. The Nike Air Max Penny 1, which was first released in 1995 and returned during 2000-2001, is on its way.

The Air Max Penny 1 was Penny Hardaway’s first signature shoe. Though the Orlando Magic guard wore a handful of sneakers prior, the Air Max Penny 1 was the first shoe to grace his name. The Air Max Penny 1 was designed by the legendary Eric Avar and was built with Air Max2 cushioning in the heel and Zoom Air (then named Tensile Air) in the forefoot. The shoe also included wing-like lateral support.

The Swoosh is bringing back the Air Max 1 in 2022 in its original “Orlando” colorway. Just like the original, the upcoming retro includes the black and white upper with its signature large Phylon wing midsole in white and complemented with a blue jeweled Swoosh. The shoe’s tongue includes an embroidered Swoosh in royal blue and the heel includes the iconic 1 Cent logo.

A release date for the Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Orlando” is set for August 11. The pair is expected to retail for $170 on SNRKS and select retailers. As always, our sneaker monitors and release day strategy will have members ready for drop day.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
