Swoosh!

On March 11 the Nike Air Max Penny 1 'Orlando' will hit stores as a re-release of the 1995 classic.

I wore this shoe during 8th grade basketball - At the time it was one of the best selling basketball shoes on the market. Penny Hardaway was a marketing gem. With the assistance of "Lil Penny", he had one of the most successful brands of the nineties. 

The "Orlando" is a classic and described on sneakernews.com as:

"One of the best Nike Basketball shoes of all time. The jeweled swoosh, Max Air on the heel, pinstriped tongue, and one of the best Nike logos ever created."

Seeing the images of this shoe put me in a time machine. Even now it makes a statement; no wonder it "wore the belt" during Penny's reign.
