A few scanned catalog shots and samples have been floating around the web, but at last we have official pics of the upcoming Air Penny II retros. This fall two of the three original colorways will make their way back to the public and not a minute too soon. It has been almost 12 years since the shoes first released for the 1996-97 season.
To promote the shoe a series of “Lil Penny” commercials were as nearly as enjoyable as Spike’s Jordan commercials with the added comedy of Chris Rock being the voice over of Lil Penny. This time around you’ll have to catch the commercials on YouTube when the Penny II retros release in October (Black/Varisty Royal) and November (White/Varsity Royal). MSRP is set for $140 and for those with big feet (and concerned), they will release up to size 15.
