nike zoom rookie lwp galaxy Nike Zoom Rookie LWP Galaxy

Not many things can set the sneaker world ablaze like February’s release of the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ did. One could argue that the mayhem that ensued on the night of February 24th is what forced Nike into a corner and compelled them to move forward with the controversial changes to the release procedures, and while it will certainly take some time for the pros and cons of those changes to be fairly assessed. Since the Galaxy Foams released, we’ve seen the speckled black and purple graphic take shape in a number of sneakers in custom form, with the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP being one of the first to make that attempt. Here we have a first look at the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Galaxy’ in its official form, and you can bet your own Galaxys that these are legit because they’ve been spotted on none other than the Foam don Penny Hardaway. While the Foamposite One utilized a darker ‘deep space’ backdrop, these Zoom Rookies are considerably pinker at the toe and the heel. Glow-in-the-dark treatment can be spotted on the outsole, but not on the moon/bowling-ball pods like they were on the Air Flight One ‘Galaxy’. More shots below, so take a look and we’ll keep you updated if anything develops. Photos: mr.man

The galaxy colorway is overhyped, and now they're putting it on an overhyped shoe. The stupid ass bowling ball pods look retarded, and this whack colorway doesn't improve anything. Go ahead and line up for these like a retard, I'm gonna pull a Rondo and pass all day.

I like em but GID moon/bowling-ball pods would be better. Maybe even make em look like meteors with some infared. definitely less pink

LET THE HYPEBEAST GAMES... BEGIN! lol, even I would thumbs down THAT comment. I guess people are all of a sudden gonna be "BIG" fans of the Zoom Rookie now? Just like they conveniently came out of the wood work for the Foamposite Ones... But to be honest, i'm just happy Penny is back in the spotlight, getting love again. Also... if Nike REALLY wanted to avoid carnage, they COULD just release more numbers. Pretty easy solution, but the 'limited' factor sucks in these kids today, brings hype, and thus free advertising for the brand. So they wont... they know what they're doing. Maybe don't give a release date? That could be exciting, the thrill of the chase. Then you wouldn't have 400 people lined up at the release time, because they cant be there every day! (Unless they homeless, in which case you shouldn't be buying shoes, you should be buying board.) NO RELEASE DATE OR TIME > +1
