Short, but sweet. That concise descriptive can be used to summarize the entire Nike Air Penny line, which is just four models deep (with the Air Foamposite One unofficially tagging along), but don’t think for a second that it’s size is directly proportional to its significance. After the Air Jordan, the Air Penny is the most celebrated signature footwear line of the pre-Kobe/LeBron era, and new developments like the Air 1/2 Cent, Zoom Rookie LWP, and resurgence of the Air Foamposite One are reasons why it maintains that aura of supremacy today. Sole Collector recently completed a nice interview with Penny Hardaway, providing a quick glimpse of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Eggplant’ that we showed you as far back as September. No word on a release yet, so check out the extra angle below and let us know what you think.
These eggplants are stupendous!!! Mann i have the eggplant 1/2 cents and i love them but ever since i got the Zoom Rookies in the Binary blue easily found new love for this model!!! These Eggplants are a must cop!!
These are a def drop . They are also releasing the all reds and all greens. Its going to be a good year for the rookies
im not gonna lie i dont have any pennys not a fan fan but if these come out theyll be my first as well, also if those" what the foam " or " galaxy " faom 1 come out im all over them.
I'm seriously tired of these ROOKIES coming out in large numbers. These are not good looking at all. First few colors were all good, but these other reincarnations of Foamposite colors and whatever else Nike comes up with is just overkill at this point.
If im not mistaken though...the all red ones were an exclusive i believe and those greenish ones no one knws when those drop if theyre even dropping
what the hell are you talking about? you act like they've released 25 colors so far. It's a hybrid and guess what, part of that hybrid is FOAMPOSITE, holy f*ckin sh*t are you a dumb ass.
