15. Nike 1/2 Cent "Varsity Royal" 

Year: 2009 

The sneaker that revived Penny's signature legacy came off the heels of the Jordan x AF1 hybrids that saw some surprising success. Nike cross-bred the first four Pennys and the Foamposite One to make a quickstrike hybrid (marketed as a signature shoe for Penny's diminutive sidekick) that actually had people geeked to get their hands on a pair, regardless of the $190 price tag.
