The upcoming Nike Zoom Rookie ‘Galaxy’ got a bit more interesting when we showed you a special version of the Penny hybrid shoe that featured ‘glow in the dark’ moon pods on the upper. Previously, the pods were a solid black color, so there was some confusion as to which would be the released version or if one or the other was a limited edition; it turns out the the ‘glow-pod’ version is in fact a collaboration with Sole Collector, which participated in another Penny-centric collaboration last year. Behind the velcro patch on the tongue is the Sole Collector logo embroidered on the tongue, a feature that can be left hidden or open depending on your own preference. With this new development now surfaced, which version do you prefer – black or glow?
