Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Eggplant’
The Nike Air Penny legacy continues forward this Holiday 2011 season with the debut of the Nike Zoom Rookie – an all-new hybrid shoe combining iconic sneakers of Penny Hardaway’s history with contemporary styling and design. You’ve already seen several colorways of the Zoom Rookie, like the Orlando Magic-inspired Binary Blue, the ‘Glow in the Dark‘, and the vibrant tonal-red ‘Memphis Express’ PE, but here’s a look at another colorway that you might’ve already had in mind. The Nike Zoom Rookie in the ‘Eggplant’ colorway shares nearly identical color-blocking as the Binary Blue version, showcasing the pearly-smooth purple Foamposite on the upper. The glossy nature of the material is only accentuated by slightly opaque nature of the translucent outsole, creating a unique visual contrast that has made Foamposites so darn popular over the years. Check out the extra shot of the Eggplant colorway of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP and head to SoleCollector for a great interview with Marc Dolce and Zach Hull – the designers of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP.
Yeah I picked up mine day of raelese. I've heard that the black cements are releasing this holiday season, but I'm not sure. I haven't worn mine yet. Been working.
I have to get the Eggplants!! I just need one pair of these just to diversify my foamposite collection.
that is very nice,should any of those are interesting for you,pls visit our website :http://www.gkingmart.com,there are lots of latest nike shoes
so far these and the binary are the best ones copping both,but hopefully these dont come out togehter or the same month.......to much money
hey if u go to da solecollectors links u also c more colors of these ( more like a hint to more colors) day have these in pewter, royal blu (not the binary blu cuz i got those) and a cooper color
I honestly like the 1/2 Cent's better than this shoe, but I'd definately be willing to buy a pair of these. I want to see better pics for the Eggplants though, because I can't see shit in that dark.
Love em both, they have turned foam ones and pros into AM95. These at least give new life into the foam line, instant classics.
I see the only 2 colorways I want in these shoes. I know the Binary Blue's drop in Nov but when do those eggplants release I need those in my life!!!
Just started saving for the Penny zoom rookie fund, Lookin @ about over 400$ for these two must have colorways. Them eggplants look mighty sexy.
ok so nike needs to trade the guys who came up with THIS awesomeness to JB and see what awesomeness will come outta that!
i dunno how i feel i think i may get rid of my eggplant 1/2 cents maybe....maybe what do ya'll think?? think that would be a bad idea??
