Embarking on the next chapter of its journey, the Nike Air Penny 2 sneaker has embarked on a fresh iteration, injecting a unique colorway, better known as “Panda”, to its design palette.

Though the sporty silhouette has had a lukewarm reception in the marketplace, it seems this new artistic approach might rejuvenate its appeal, promising to be a worthy investment for discerning sneaker aficionados.
Following successful collaborations with Stussy and Social Status, the Nike Air Penny 2 is now transitioning from its initial releases into a more mainstream, “General Release” (GR) phase. Anticipation builds as we eagerly await the unveiling of the nostalgic “Orlando” colorway. Despite these potential pulls, the model has experienced a slower than anticipated uptake in retail, with many pairs waiting to be purchased even after being marked down.
However, the shoe’s underwhelming retail performance does not detract from its inherent value. At an accessible price, the Air Penny 2 stands as a compelling choice for those seeking a combination of style and comfort. A noteworthy addition to the range is the incoming “Panda” colorway. Drawing from the monochrome hues of the Giant Panda, this variant sports a stylish white and black color combination.
These sneakers’ future seems to echo that of their predecessors, with an expected retail price of $180 to $200, likely to see subsequent markdowns. Nevertheless, this does not reflect on the quality or appeal of these sneakers. Complete with a faded color edge feature reminiscent of the Dunk High and Air More Uptempo models, they hold their own in the sneaker landscape.
The Panda colorway edition further sets itself apart with a unique, basketball-inspired logo imprinted on the insole, tying this SKU into a broader, seasonal, basketball-themed collection. This detail hints at the comprehensive thought and design ethos incorporated into this line of sneakers.
