One of the many classic Penny Hardaway sneakers Paul George wore in his career was on the bright lights of the 2012 All-Star weekend in Orlando. Paul George was in the Slam Dunk Contest that year and while his scores weren’t glowing, his shoes were. PG rocked a “Galaxy” themed Nike Air Flight One with a glowing outsole to match his custom glowing jersey to throw down a 270 degree windmill jam.
The Air Flight One may not have Penny’s namesake but was popular in the ‘90s amongst fans, and apparently Michael Jordan himself. After his return from the first retirement, he couldn’t wait to wear his own Air Jordan 11 on the court in the Playoffs against Penny. Due to color restrictions though, MJ was forced to wear something else and chose a black colorway of the Air Flight One as his weapon of choice (albeit with the Penny logos on the heel cut off.)
