February 11, 2012: Biggest Release Day Ever?

6e5c1118e18a1226608ca54d8bf86933 570x413 February 11, 2012:  Biggest Release Day Ever?

Sure, some solitary sneaker releases like the recent Air Jordan XI ‘Concord’ Retro and a few others have packed as much (or more) anticipation and frenzy, but we’re not sure if there’s ever been a date in sneaker history with so many high profile releases all dropping on the same day. Where do we start?  How about the Dave White Air Jordan 1 which has been heavily previewed and eagerly awaited while sitting in limbo without a confirmed release date? Or maybe the Nike ‘Black History Month’ Collection featuring Nike Basketball’s three-headed signature model monster and an accompanying set of four NSW offerings? Still not cracking your wallet open? Perhaps the ‘Old Royal’ Air Jordan X will change your mind. Or with Valentine’s Day on the way, maybe it will be a pair of the ‘Voltage Cherry’ Air Jordan IV GS for the lady or little lady in your life. Last but not least is the ‘Dynamic Blue’ colorway of the popular Zoom Rookie LWP model which has thus far been absent from the 2012 release schedule until now.

Quite a crop indeed, and while there is no singular release in the eleven sneakers anywhere near Concord-ian magnitude, the sum of all these parts adds up to quite possibly the most action-packed release date we’ve ever seen and a lot of difficult decisions for sneakerheads everywhere. Oh yeah, and by the way, White/Cement Air Jordan IV’s drop next Saturday and the All-Star weekend batch at the end of the month may trump this week’s bonanza. Hottest month ever? Foot Locker thinks so. Time to smash open those piggy banks and gear up for month long release mayhem, all starting tonight at midnight on NikeStore and nationwide at brick and mortar retailers like Extra Butter. Let us know what you’ll be copping tomorrow night and stay tuned to Sneaker News for all the latest on the February heatwave.

Nike Zoom Rookie LWP – Black – Anthracite | Release Date

nike zoom rookie lwp black anthracite release date 1 Nike Zoom Rookie LWP   Black   Anthracite | Release Date

While the Air Flight One is headed toward the stars via Orlando, the spectacular hybrid model that was most young sneakerheads’ first exposure to its signature pods is headed in the opposite direction. Given their history (first Shaq in ’96, then the ’09 Finals), you might think that’d be LA, but we’re actually talking about a colorway that always does well everywhere, any time of year. The Nike Zoom Rookie is ready to debut its ’Blackout’ colorup, a subtly stunning mix of Anthracite Foamposite, black nubuck and the ever-present translucent outsole. These have the unenviable task of following the aptly named ‘Dynamic Blue’ joints to retail, but there’s little cause for worry about betting on swift sales when these hit select Nike Sportswear retailers on March 3rd.  via Kicks-crew

Nike Zoom Rookie LWP – Black – Gold | Sample

January 12th, 2012 by | 10 comments

nike zoom rookie lwp black gold sample 1 Nike Zoom Rookie LWP   Black   Gold | Sample

Penny Hardaway’s Memphis Blues, Memphis Express, and White/Silver PEs of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP should provide a nice hint of what could possibly come in terms of future Zoom Rookie colorways. Simply put, the tonal package just works. We’ve yet to receive one in the uni-color make-up, but the March release of the Anthracite/Black seems to be the closest, but check out this Sample version of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP in Anthracite, featuring a golden swoosh at the toe and along the stitched applique along the length of the tongue; Black and Gold has always been an unmistakeable combination, resulting in numerous classics like the original Defining Moments Package as well as the honorable Black History Month releases, so there’s no doubt that this Anthracite/Black with the acute golden touch would’ve been widely popular. We’ve got additional angles for you below, so take a look and let us know what you think. via diirtyvandal of NT.

Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Eggplant’ – New Images

Short, but sweet. That concise descriptive can be used to summarize the entire Nike Air Penny line, which is just four models deep (with the Air Foamposite One unofficially tagging along), but don’t think for a second that it’s size is directly proportional to its significance. After the Air Jordan, the Air Penny is the most celebrated signature footwear line of the pre-Kobe/LeBron era, and new developments like the Air 1/2 Cent, Zoom Rookie LWP, and resurgence of the Air Foamposite One are reasons why it maintains that aura of supremacy today. Sole Collector recently completed a nice interview with Penny Hardaway, providing a quick glimpse of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Eggplant’ that we showed you as far back as September. No word on a release yet, so check out the extra angle below and let us know what you think.

The Nike Zoom Rookie LWP features the kind of bold lines and eye-catching materials that make it anything but ordinary, so what happens when you apply one of the most basic colorways possible? Turns out, a ‘Blackout’ Zoom Rookie does nothing to diminish this Nike Sportswear hybrid from breaking necks, and they might even be more impactful in a sense because of the relatively unexpected way the Foamposite sections jump out at you under the right lighting. We’ve already seen two different white/black colorways released to great commercial success, and with the popularity of both Foamposite and Air Penny retros in recent years, there’s little doubt this one will be similarly well accepted. Click through and take a closer look, let us know where these rank against the other Zoom Rookie LWP releases and stick with Sneaker News for this pair’s US release date.  via in52

We won’t go so far as to say that his range of Nike Sportswear sneaker offerings is more popular than during that epic early/mid-’90s run when he played Robin to Shaq’s Batman, but there’s no understating the popularity of Penny Hardawy’s signature series. The Nike Zoom Rookie LWP is the second hybrid NSW created from the Air Penny series and its offshoots, this new Dynamic Blue and Wolf Grey colorup a nice middle ground between the legendary ‘Orlando’ colorways and the variety of grey tones that have been oh so popular these past couple years. The white/black colorway just released as what will likely remain the last Zoom Rookie of 2011, so are you ready to move into next year with this bold new pair? Click through for some additional angles and stick with Sneaker News for the US release date.  via AGS

It took a while for us to finally see proof of the inevitable when the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP only recently showed up for previews in its ‘blackout’ edition, but maybe that’s because Nike Sportswear wanted to take care of all the other basics first. We got a couple of blue pairs referencing Penny Hardaway’s brilliant mid-’90s stint with the Orlando Magic and a couple white/black designs including one glow-in-the-dark Halloween release. This, then, is the ‘other’ white and black Zoom Rookie, a pair that rounds out the 2011 releases with a crisp high contrast look that could have been a perfect thematic expression of either equinox. Instead, we get them on the winter solstice one year before the world’s supposed to end, which is probably best since you’ll have a bit of extra time to rock the full range of adult sizes from NikeStore or get your pair on eBay.
