If you caught Wednesday night’s feature post on the Nike Basketball and Training releases from the 90’s, you would’ve noticed the Nike Air Go LWP among that impressive cluster of sneakers. The Air Go LWP, while an important player in the design of the Zoom Rookie LWP, isn’t exactly an official Air Penny shoe. In fact, the Air Go LWP was a favorite of a number of NBA players at the time – guys like Tim Hardaway, Reggie Miller, and a number of other speedy guards rocked these lightweight beauties. But with Penny being such a memorable name in an era dominated by Michael Jordan, we often associate the Air Go LWP with him, which is a big reason why it was used as a design foundation for the Zoom Rookie LWP. Tomorrow is the official release date for the wide-release of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP, and how fitting is it that the colorway is in remembrance of Penny’s days in Orlando? Cop these tomorrow at Nike Sportswear retailers, or snag a pair at the comfort of your own home by clicking through to available auctions from sneaker_st on eBay.

...the DESIGN alone is an EYECATCHER and im pretty confident they perform well ON-COURT. They are BASKETBALL kicks 1st.Wearing them as STREET GEAR is a matter of OPINION...im rockin mine in the STREET.
seems like the only reason most people copp penny's is cause they retro and pure hype...a legit sneaker come out and eryone sleepn cause they friends aint copp first...they worth erybit of $200...you call urselves sneaker heads though huh??
these maybe tougher then all penny's....copped dis morn..they are ridiculous...who eva didnt copp gone be sorry i promise!
My opinion, the best hybird too date. Would like a 13 in the Glow in the dark's if any one can help?
these look way better in person. i mean the shoe it self not necessary this color way but the glow in the dark ones and the sole collectors whuite and blue are on point. still debating if im going to get these.
This is my consolation prize..apparently everyone knows about nikestore.com bug so miami nights, cannons and those dreaded yotr 7s I have to forget about..besides what else is droppin hotter than these. I'll wait....hahaha...salute to those who coppin
This is a very nice shoe, and I feel like people won't appreciate this until they honestly see it in person.. I'll definitely be purchasing in the morning..
The only Penny shoe that gets hyped are foams for 1. 2, this is a hybrid, not a new shoe. 3, I don't call myself a sneakerhead. That shit is lame. I'm just a dude that likes shoes.
sorry Mr. Gaysto....FOR 1: there was never any reference to which Penny's he was talking bout, FOR 2: All Penny's get hyped; just foams get a lot more, FOR 3:hybrids are in fact NEW SHOES...(retros are re-releases), FOR 4: you should neva call your self a sneaker head cause you CLEARLY have no clue about sneakers.....that is all... lol
I think he ment that 200 is a ridiculous price for hybrids and I agree. There's no way Penny Hybrids should cost as much as Foams, but that's Nike trying to anally rape everyone.
Foams are $200 cause the technology...if the hybrids have the same technology why shouldn't they cost the same
