Already in the running to be one of the Top 30 Sneakers of 2011, the Nike Zoom Rookie has refreshed the Nike Air Penny line once again with this multi-dimensional hybrid sneaker combining numerous figments of Anfernee Hardaway’s sneaker history. Just yesterday we showed you a brand new ‘Eggplant’ colorway of the Zoom Rookie, but as we’ve stated before, it’s the Orlando Magic-inspired Blue/Black/White that is the true barometer of the legitimacy of a Nike sneaker worthy enough to don the famous 1-Cent logo. In this new detailed gallery of this November 12th release, it’s quite clear that the folks at Nike Sportswear did another bang-up job in creating a hybrid sneaker (Jordan Brand, take notes), as all of the components – Air Flight One, Air Go LWP, Air Foamposite One – equally share the spotlight and work harmoniously to create one helluva hybrid sneaker. We’ve got a detailed look ahead, so take a thorough look and let us know what you think. via hoopchina.

I would mos def get a pair,and prolly evenhoop in that blue colorway but that price might be the only flaw,but they fresh though
These are before their time. I cant front...I hated foams why back when.........nine pairs later, I wish I would of been as smart back then. I love sneakers.............I guess I'll have to get these too.
...i like the direction NIKE is headed with this model,This will be a FAVORITE among NBA PLAYERS...and,keep in mind people,every sneaker is not going to go with JEANS and SHORTS.I think iwill get my 9yr old son a pair though.
You can always tell who is familiar with Penny's OG shoe options. The pods come from the Air Flight One which I pray that Nike will re-release some day.
still hate em. thought they wud grow on me but nah i still dont like em n def not 4 200. they're 2 high top 4 me or sumn
this shoe is hot but for $200 yhea right, everybody aint up on them like that There will be a sale where you will be able to buy them for 130-160 at your local sneaker shop i bet
..PENNY HARDAWAY had on the RED colorway @ a recent hoops event.He must have got them exclusivly from NIKE.
funny, that's what everybody said about the foams when they very first came out. now look.....don't sleep homie.
