Nike Air Flight One

Nike Flight One Original Black AwayNike’s Air Flight One was a great lightweight sneaker which perfectly suited Penny’s style of play. With its lightweight Phylon midsole, encapsulated Air unit and mid-cut upper; Penny lit up the stage wearing one of the more iconic Flight models during the mid 90’s.

Orlando ended up making their first Playoff appearance wearing the Flight One against the Chicago Bulls. With Michael Jordan fresh out of retirement, and yearning to lace up his brand new (at the time) Concord Air Jordan XI’s, MJ stole the show while wearing Penny’s Flight One due to uniform restrictions. Fortunately for Penny, they were able to knock Chicago out of the first round which ended up never happening again until Jordan’s second retirement.
