Social Status and Nike have collaborated once again, and just like their recent project, the duo is giving the classic Air Penny 2 sneaker a new look.

After delivering the black-based colorway last month, the sneaker retailer and the sportswear giant have announced today that its next white and blue makeup of their Air Penny 2 “Playgrounds” collab will hit stores next month.

The forthcoming iteration of the Social Status x Nike Air Penny 2 “Playgrounds” dons a blue-based leather upper and is offset by sail nubuck overlay panels and a white mudguard. The sneaker also features a special co-branded logo by the ankle collar and reflective 3M detailing throughout. The shoe also comes with a special Li’l Penny-inspired box that pays homage to the basketball legend.

According to Social Status, its Nike Air Penny 2 project “pays homage to the history, legacy and importance of Penny
Hardaway and his game-changing Nike silhouettes.” The vibrant color combination draws inspiration from the energy of school yards, playgrounds and basketball court across the globe.

The release of this new Social Status x Nike Air Penny 2 “Playgrounds” colorway starts today at Social Status stores via an in-store raffle that runs until Nov. 1. The sneaker project will launch on Nov. 4 at Socialstatuspgh.com at 11 a.m. ET and will retail for $200.
