The Nike Zoom Rookie LWP officially hit the open market this past Thursday when the limited ‘Glow In The Dark’ colorway finally hit stores. Those who passed on this release were probably awaiting the mid-November arrival of the ‘Binary Blue’ colorway, which represents the classic ‘Orlando’ theme we often associate to all Nike Air Penny shoes. However, during the Nike x SC event over the weekend, Penny Hardaway was sporting another PE dubbed the ‘Memphis Blues’ – a 1-of-1 made for Mr. One Cent himself. It features a tonal royal blue upper paired acutely with a translucent outsole for the simplistic approach typically implemented for Foamposite releases (tonal uppers, translucent outsoles). Do you prefer the tonal blue ‘Memphis Blues’ PE or the ‘Memphis Express‘, painted in a vibrant red? Let us know your thoughts below. via SoleCollector.
these shoes are sick but the reseller price tags on any colorway of the rookies make me sick.would def cop for retail but no more then that. got the bread but will not just give it to some punkass trying to come up off my hard work.
...NIKE keeps dropping PENNYs and he is retired. I know he wish he was still playn so he could rock these joints in the N.B.A.
I'll take either, not a huge fan of solid color based shoes but I like the go lwp and both the red and blue are slick
