The Nike Air Penny 5 Orlando Magic pays homage to Orlando Magic guard Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway who took the NBA by storm in the 1995 NBA Finals. Hardaway was always pictured on the courts with a fresh pair of kicks and the Nike Air Penny 5 was a firm favourite of his, so the American footwear giant decided to bring the basketball kicks back into the Nike rotation this year.
In a nod to the Magic's team colours, the Nike Air Penny 5 Orlando White Blue comes in a pristine white home-themed palate and a retro pinstripe detailing on the heel and tongue - a throwback reference to the jerseys the Magic wore back in the 90s.
There’s royal blue accents on the Swoosh and sweeping midsole running from heel to toe alongside a black lining. Underfoot you’ll find an icy blue outsole, complete with 1 Cent branding on the tread. The famous Heaven Cent motif returns on the tongue and heel, and the Nike Air Penny V Orlando Home White shoe is capped off with black and blue Swooshes at the lateral ankle.
If you're a Magic fans looking for a reason to feel nostalgic for the golden age of basketball, then the Nike Air Penny 5 Orlando Magic kicks should be on your to cop list. They will drop on Nike.com and selected retailers very soon for the retail price of $160.
