Last year, news came out that the Nike Air Max Penny 1 would be coming back in its original colorways in 2022. Now, it looks like Penny Hardaway’s first signature sneaker will also be getting a collaboration with Social Status that will drop later this year.

The 5 removable Swooshes make the sneaker more fun

The upper of the sneaker is made of grey nubuck with chalk-white suede overlays and black piping and lining. The standout feature is the 5 removable Swooshes on the side, each of which represents a different sport. The Penny logo is on the tongue and heel. A jeweled Swoosh is on the toe, and a black and grey pull tab is on the tongue and heel. The Penny logo on the heel has been replaced by co-branding from Nike and Social Status. The midsole is also grey to match the upper and has an Air Max unit in the heel, Zoom Air in the forefoot, and a white outsole to finish off the shoe.


So we’re happy to see that both Nike and Social Status are showing love for the Nike Air Max Penny 1. As one of the most undervalued colors of the Nike Sportswear collection, the Air Max Penny 1 Recess is a breath of fresh air on the market.
