NIKE ZOOM ROOKIE The Nike Zoom Rookie is a hybrid design in Nike’s Air Penny line that first debuted in 2011, combining the silhouettes of the Nike Air Flight One and Nike Air Go LWP. The resulting sneaker has been one of the more celebrated new-era Foamposite releases.

Remember when the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ randomly restocked at 21 Mercer and a small subset of NYC sneaker lovers got the rare chance to walk right in and cop the coveted release? Well for the rest of you this is your chance to re-up, although its not a restock of a pair that’s already hit the market but rather the delayed arrival of a stray style from the ‘Galaxy’ ganged that’s been teased for some time now. The pair is the Nike Zoom Rookie boasting the starry look, one currently on deck for September of 2012. Can this hybrid Foamposite hit the same bar set by its predecessors? Let us know what you think in the comments below and be sure to hit the jump for a bunch of new angles on the Nike Zoom Rookie ‘Galaxy’. Photos: Pure Sole

“Matte Red” Nike Zoom Rookie LWP

July 14th, 2012 by | 8 comments

matte red nike zoom rookie lwp Matte Red Nike Zoom Rookie LWP

We’ve been wondering if the ‘Galaxy’ edition might make it to retail since Penny Hardaway himself was spotted wearing them this May (and again in June), but since that revelation, two Nike Zoom Rookie LWPs have set their sights on store shelves. This ‘Matte Red’ Zoom Rookie shares its monochromatic look with the ‘Memphis Blues’ pairs that’ve popped up early in limited numbers, but unlike that glossy Tigers-inspired look and the ‘Memphis Reds’ to which they’re both closely related, this pair opts for a more satiny finish. The result is like a whole new chapter in the Zoom Rookie story and one that we can’t help but think deserves a few more pages. We’ve got the ‘illustrations’ covered with additional photos after the jump, so click through for more and stick with Sneaker News for release info. Photos: Taobao

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

Nike Zoom Rookie LWP – Black – Anthracite | Release Date

February 9th, 2012 by | 7 comments

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

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
