A new sneaker collaboration between Social Status and Nike is coming soon.
Sneaker leaked social media account @zSneakerheadz shared images of the upcoming Social Status x Nike Air Penny collection on Instagram yesterday. In the post, it was revealed that the Whitaker Group’s retail banner had reimagined NBA legend Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway’s first and second signature Nike basketball shoes, but the theme behind the styles didn’t has not been confirmed.
The Social Status x Nike Air Max Penny 1 collaboration will be available in two contrasting color schemes based on beige and black and unlike the standard versions of the shoe, the side Swoosh branding is interchangeable. Social Status embroidery on the heel counter along with the “Penny” logo on the tongue add to the design. The design is completed with a Max air-cushioned midsole and solid, translucent outsole.
The Social Status x Nike Air Penny 2 will also arrive in predominantly Black and Beige looks, but unlike the aforementioned Air Max Penny 1, it features Light Blue accents throughout the upper. Both styles also feature co-branded embroidery on the ankle collar, a special Air Penny 2 tag, and custom shoe boxes that appear to be inspired by a toy chest.
Before images of the Social Status x Nike Air Penny collection surfaced, the duo joined forces in September 2021 to release a pair of Dunk Mid “Free Lunch” collaborations.
Although images of the collaboration were shared by @zSneakerheadz, Release information for the Social Status x Nike Air Penny collaboration has yet to be announced by either party.
