The arrival of the Nike Air Flight One last weekend hopefully served as a bit of a history lesson, letting heads grab one of the pieces that inspired the current wave of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP. This weekend it’s back to the regularly scheduled programming, with the black/anthracite colorway set to release on Saturday, March 3rd. The Foamposite frenzy has seen a lot of people begging for a blacked out silhouette to hit retail again, and for the time being this pair is the closest thing we’ve got. Follow us after the jump if you want a better look at the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP in black/anthracite, which is starting to pop up at accounts like Social Status or you can get yourself a pair now on eBay.
Nike Zoom Rookie LWP
This shoe is dope - PERIOD. The hardest fusion out right now and its a simply beautiful compilation. I'm a fan of blackout colorways and this one is straight dope.
Have grabbed every pair dat has dropped so far... but ima pass on these cuz they droppin on da wroooong date. But i wayz gonna pass on these regardless. Rather cop da lime foams, lbj summit lakes... mayb da stealth 10s but ima need a lint roller fa those
These are hard as f*** .. I call em the dark gothams like batman.. Yellow soles won't ruin this silhouette.
This is a great design and a great looking shoe, but it's not worth $200. It's unfortunate that Nike skimped out on the technology on these. Only a crappy Zoom bag in the rear and nothing in the forefoot. These would be great if they were priced at $130. Sick colorway regardless though.
Going with these over the Electrolime foams. For some reason I like these because they don't have a resale value to them. They don't feel like a "hyped" shoe cuz not many people are paying over retail cuz they aren't a retro shoe. It's something I like so I'm buying it and I encourage all that feel the same to do the same. Dare to wear!
