Last month brought us our very first look at the Nike Air Force 1 Low CMFT “Penny Hardaway”, one of the latest additions to Nike’s CMFT hybrid collection. As with some past few releases, such as the Nike Air Force 1 Low CMFT LW GP Sig “The Glove” and the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Weatherman”, the brand seeks inspiration from classic Nike Basketball silhouettes and infuses them with the timeless Air Force 1.
When it comes to the Nike Air Force 1 Low CMFT “Penny Hardaway”, the shoe has many features derived from the Nike Air Max Penny 1 as well as the Nike Air Foamposite One, using the Air Force 1 Low as the base. A jeweled Swoosh and pinstriped netted tongue are reminiscent of the Penny 1, as the Foamposite side panel and Penny symbol on the heel tab pay tribute to the Foamposite One. In the traditional Orlando Magic colorway, this sneaker dons a Black nubuck upper, accented with a White portion of Nike’s patented Foamposite material. Varsity Royal blue lining and accents keep the colorway alive, as well as a White midsole and icy translucent outsole. The signature Penny symbol can be seen on the left sock liner, as a quote from Penny Hardaway himself is placed in the heel potion of the right sock liner reading, “Ballin’ is what I was born to do.”.
