Nike Zoom Rookie LWP – Glow In The Dark ‘Galaxy’ Customs

March 19th, 2012 by | 19 comments

zoom rookie glow cust eb 4 Nike Zoom Rookie LWP   Glow In The Dark Galaxy Customs

We already gave you a look at Mache’s Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Galaxy’ Customs, but does this version have his original beat? What looks familiar is the obvious – the airbrushed ‘Galaxy’ graphic pattern on the upper – but Expression Airbrush, who completed this project, added a Glow-In-The-Dark treatment to the moon-pods on the upper, adding dots to give them a moon-like appeal with the accentuated spots acting as ‘craters’. The speckle, along with the Penny logos, Swoosh, and stripe on the tongue are given the Glow treatment for a sick futuristic appeal in complete darkness. Are these better than Mache’s original cutoms? Check out the detailed gallery below and if you want to throw in a few bids for a chance to own this pair, check out the listing from mr.rager89 on eBay.

Nike Sportswear Holiday 2012 Basketball Preview

Penny Hardaway won Olympic gold with Dream Team II at the 1996 Atlanta Games, but we haven’t seen any of his Nike Sportswear retro and hybrid series yet connected with this summer’s USAB blowout.  Instead, NSW’s going to be emphasizing Penny in the fourth quarter of 2012 along with one of his teammates from the XXVI Olympiad.  Moving left to right in the image above, we see our first glimpse of the new Nike Air Penny V that seeks to continue Anfernee’s legacy while introducing some new twists.  You can also count on a copper Zoom Rookie LWP as well as the Air Flight 1 joining a couple of older looking designs that seem inspired by David Robinson‘s Air Force 180 High (though they seem to lack an inflation system of any sort), perhaps similar to the PR1 we saw imitating the classic Air Pressure.  Click through to see more, let us know which makes you most excited and stick with Sneaker News for each pair’s release info.  via HC

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.

What a way to end the first half of the NBA season! We’ve got a lot of NBA in-game sneaker sightings to catch up on, so let’s get to it. Starting off with last night’s much-anticipated match-up between the Knicks and the Heat, LeBron James was seen wearing the Nike LeBron 9 ‘BHM’ with the Black/White Alternate uniforms. In San Antonio, sneakerhead/small forward Kawhi Leonard rocked the White/Black Nike Zoom Rookie LWP after he wore the Air Jordan XIV ‘Chartreuse’ just days ago. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII iD has started to pop up more frequently, with great designs from Demar DeRozan, Nick Young, and Brandon Rush. Houston’s Kevin Martin jumped the gun by unofficially debuting the Air Jordan 2012 in the White/Black colorway (with the Red inner bootie, of course). Check out the rest of the NBA Feet action below and stick with Sneaker News over the All-Star Weekend as we will keep you up to date with all of the action! via ESPN

Those were indeed on another level, but flying at the same altitude is this sick colorway of the Zoom Rookie that will hit stores tomorrow. First viewings of the ‘Dynamic Blue’ Zoom Rookie resulted in some positive remarks from our readers, and with the Zoom Rookie established as one of the best new releases put out by Nike, the Dynamic Blues will certainly be a big ticket item during tomorrow’s massive set of releases.

Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Galaxy’ Customs By Mache

February 10th, 2012 by | 32 comments

nike zoom rookie galaxy 3 Nike Zoom Rookie LWP Galaxy Customs By Mache

Just yesterday Sneaker News provided the world with the first detailed look at the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’, showing off the glow-in-the-dark outsole and angles aplenty. The glow-in-the-dark theme will in fact run rampant through the 2012 All-Star Collection, but remember that the ‘glow’ craze first started with that sick Zoom Rookie release just a few months ago. Mache Customs, who has been breaking necks with his unforgettable creations, brings All-Star and Zoom Rookie together with his Zoom Rookie ‘Galaxy’ customs;  what makes these so much more impressive is that the upper isn’t a mere paint-job, but the result of one of the best paintbrush-meets-sneaker crafts we’ve ever seen. Mache continues to raise the bar for other budding sneaker customizers and these Galaxy Rookies are a clear example why, so check out the additional images below and let us know if you think these are better than the Foamposite Ones!
