It’s becoming apparent that the so-called one-of-one Player Exclusives of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP made for Penny Hardaway aren’t exactly ‘one-of-one’; just last week, Memphis Tigers guard Chris Crawford wore the ‘Memphis Blues’ PE during a game, and recently Marcus Gilchrist of the San Diego Chargers showed off his latest sneaker pick-up the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Memphis Express’. Both PEs feature tonal colorways with the ‘Express’ opting for a fiery red (a nice anti-thesis to the cooler blue on the ‘Blues’).

The Nike Zoom Rookie LWP officially hit the open market this past Thursday when the limited ‘Glow In The Dark’ colorway finally hit stores. Those who passed on this release were probably awaiting the mid-November arrival of the ‘Binary Blue’ colorway, which represents the classic ‘Orlando’ theme we often associate to all Nike Air Penny shoes. However, during the Nike x SC event over the weekend, Penny Hardaway was sporting another PE dubbed the ‘Memphis Blues’ – a 1-of-1 made for Mr. One Cent himself. It features a tonal royal blue upper paired acutely with a translucent outsole for the simplistic approach typically implemented for Foamposite releases (tonal uppers, translucent outsoles). Do you prefer the tonal blue ‘Memphis Blues’ PE or the ‘Memphis Express‘, painted in a vibrant red? Let us know your thoughts below. via SoleCollector.
