With the ‘Galaxy Foamposite stirring up an incredible amount of attention around sneakers, many wondered what the next ‘Galaxy’ release would follow. Of course, the trio of Nike Basketball signatures for the 2012 NBA All-Star Game can’t be overlooked, but those didn’t capture the seemingly unlimited depth of outer space as it used the ‘galaxy’ print in a controlled and limited matter. The Zoom Rookie LWP, however, popped up in ‘Galaxy’ form (a black-pod version and a glow-pod version that was revealed to be a collab with SC), with NSW head honcho Gentry Humphrey confirming the release himself; a confirmed date of October 6th is being reported, so keep your eyes peeled for more updates as we near this release date.

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?

Nike Zoom Rookie LWP “Galaxy” – New Images

The most recent pair of ‘Galaxy’ Nike Zoom Rookies we saw earlier this week displayed a soft blue on the Air Flight One-inspired pods as an indication that they glow in the dark just like the sole on February’s legendary Air Foamposite One.  And just when you think that an early production model might reveal the final result, the same retailer known for getting its hands on heat months before everyone else shows us a different build.  This ‘Galaxy’ Zoom Rookie opts for black pods instead, which has a nice balancing effect but might not be quite as exciting as either the other pair’s blue ‘natural’ state (and definitely can’t outshine the GITD capability).  Still, it’s not simply cramming a bunch of details into a single sneaker that makes for a standout, and the Zoom Rookie itself represents a shining example of how to gracefully combine selections from a buffet of tasty details.  So you make the call, Sneaker News readers: glow-in-the-dark or black pods on the ‘Galaxy’ Zoom Rookie LWP?  The latter is depicted in greater detail below, and be sure to stick with us to find out which version releases, and exactly when.
